Magic Slim & The Teardrops / Joe Carter with Sunnyland Slim – That Ain’t Right
Delmark DE 786
Compact Disc (2006)
The seventh installment in the Ralph Bass Series. Magic Slim is now an internationally renowned blues artist. This 1977 session goes back to a time when Slim was primarily busy on Chicago’s south side hosting the Sunday jam session at Florence’s, or at other clubs like Theresa’s, The Checkerboard or The 1125 Club. His group The Teardrops consisted of brothers Nick Holt, bass; Doug Holt, drums and Coleman Pettis, 2nd guitar.
Joe Carter was one of the “unsung heroes of the Chicago club scene in the 1950s…a slide-playing twin disciple of Elmore James and Muddy Waters.”-Cub Koda, All Music Guide. This is one of only two sessions Carter ever recorded and it features Lacy Gibson, guitar; Sunnyland Slim, piano; Willie Black, bass; Fred Below, drums.
