Big, fat blues
Tim Weber | Iowa | 06/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"He may not be "slim" any longer, but "magic" is woven all through Morris Holt's sensational "Black Tornado." This not only is Magic Slim's best album, it is one of the top 10 (top 5?) blues discs of the 1990s. Like the tornado of the title, Magic Slim's rough and tumble blues could blow a 2x4 through a brick wall; he could tear your heart out and show it to you while it's still beating. (OK, I'm getting carried away). "Black Tornado" is slow to get going, but the third cut, a cover of Muddy Waters' "Still a Fool" is sensational, and there's more to come. "I Can't Trust My Woman" is great, and I defy you to sit still during the righteously houserockin' "Magic Boogie." Whew! And on the magnificent slow burner "Crazy Woman," Slim sings: "I got a crazy woman, she got a mind just like a goose; I think I'm going down to buy me a toolbox, I believe that woman she got some screws loose." I don't know what the hell that means, but ... YES! Get this baby."
Magic Slim is the real deal

"Magic Slim is the real thing - his guitar is varied throughout, but also drenched in Chicago's South Side. His voice, too, is honest. And his band drives forward constantly. Throw Willie Kent and Lurrie Bell in a blender, and you're listening to Magic Slim. (Hey, let's not forget that the Teardrops are one tight band.)"

"If you're looking for house rockin' Chicago Blues this is some of the best you'll find. "Playin With My Mind" and "You've Got Bad Intentions"are infectious and you'll find yourself hitting the the repeat button on your CD player every time you hear them."
