See What You're Doin' To Me- Vol 2 of The Zoo Bar Collection
Little Joey | Burlington, VT United States | 01/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I feel like I've been missing out on a great secret having only recently discovered Magic Slim. If you appreciate the raw slashing West Side Chicago style of the 70's, (Hound dog Taylor, Magic Sam) you're in for a treat. Magic Slim used to fill in for Hound Dog Taylor and is a verteran of the Chicago scene. Liner notes here are a bit odd, only a snippet of an interview with Magic Slim (Morris Holt) and no mention of the gig, recording notes or dates. (although there are personnel notes)But the recording itself is great. Engineer was on the ball; Beautiful saturated ambient club sound, with the bass round and right there and all vocals and instruments well-recorded. The performances are great too. This is part of (I believe) a 5 disc array of the "Zoo Bar Collection"- "best of" live performances.
Listen to the real deal from back in the good old days when it was still being cranked out loud in the tiny West side and South side clubs. All that blues energy, with that beautiful SPACE between the notes...
