Guitar Slim was an innovative blues guitarist celebrated for his wild stage act and distorted sound. His biggest success was The Things That I Used To Do (1954), produced by a young Ray Charles and released through Art Rupe’s Specialty Records. The song topped the Billboard R&B chart and sold over a million copies. This 30-track CD comprises all his A- and B-sides during the 1950s, recordings for the Imperial, J-B, Specialty and Atco labels. It’s a comprehensive overview of his career and showcases both his distinctive style, which influenced the likes of Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and helped shape the future of rock’n’roll.
Reviews For The Complete Releases 1951-58
Vintage Rock (Issue 42) - John Howard
“All original material on this varied collection goes from near-primitive blues to full-on rock’n’roll, including swamp-pop, jump-blues and everything in-between. His gold top Les Paul is always to the fore, his lyrics are not only interesting, but commercial. Highly recommended.” ****
Blues & Rhythm Issue 342 – Phil Wight
“I imagine anyone who is remotely interested willl have all this material, however if you don't then this is an issue I'd urge you to add to your groaning shelves.”
