"It's no wonder that the Stones aped Slim Harpo on so many of their early records: they were slaves to the groove and had a truly thumpin' bass player; Harpo's records were all about the groove, usually led by a great bass line. The Stones version of
"Hip Shake" on the classic EXILE ON MAIN STREET is a near perfect copy of the Harpo version found on this record.The sound on these recordings is excellent. How a little label like Excello, recording low-budget acts in the (relatively speaking) middle of nowhere could capture such a great sound is beyond me."
Shake Your Hips

"One of the things about the blues is how well it ages. Some of the standards stay surprisingly fresh and new after many years, waiting for new fans to discover them as if for the first time. I believe that this CD and Slim Harpo exemplifies this. This is a very easy to listen to CD, with great standard songs written by James Moore aka Slim Harpo. Among them are TeNi Nee Ni Nu, Shake your hips, Baby, Scratch My Back ,Rainin' in My Heart, I'm a King Bee, and I've Got Love If You Want It. Harp was a talented guitarist and harpist. Harpo had a unique nasal vocal style which was developed because a producer didn't like his singing so told him to sing through his nose.Harpo was a truly gifted song writer. His songs have been covered by Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, Hank Williams, Jr., Elvis Presley and Muddy Waters among others.This is a good CD for those wanting to learn more about the blues and begin developing their own collection. If you are already a blues fan and are not familiar with him take a listen."
