CD Reviews

This is Blue
Greekfreak | Pusan Korea (South) | 12/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Via Frank Zappa, I was turned onto Guitar Slim. That's the long and the short of it, and within moments, you can see how Slim influenced Zappa's scratchy, angry guitar sound.It's all here, some of the purest, meanest, dirtiest blues ever recorded, I'm sure. "You Gonna Miss Me", "Bad Luck Blues", "Reap What You Sow", and especially "Story of My Life" hold up to anything you want to compare them to. If there is a problem with sound quality, I'm not aware of it--but if you can find a more comprehensive anthology complete with alternate takes or even live tracks, it would probably be worth picking up instead of this release."
"Story of My Life" - yes, yes, yes

"There are a lot of great cuts on this CD but when I want to GET DOWN, I put on "Story of My Life." This song is blues at its most OVER-THE-TOP, from the Slim's impassioned voice twisting around the opening line to his totally raw guitar solo that sounds like one long moan. THIS IS THE BLUES!! Guitar Slim: you were one of a kind. R.I.P."
Best Known recordings by blues guitar legend

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Including the original (and hit) rendition of the blues classic The Things I Used to Do, this disc brings together some of Eddie 'Guitar Slim' Jones' most celebrated recordings. This is not the only Guitar Slim number which has been reworked by numberous blues and rock icons from Buddy Guy, Earl King, Guitar Shorty, Clifton Chenier, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins, Canned Heat, Guitar Shorty and even James Brown. Gatemouth Brown was perhaps the biggest direct influence, but Slim's gospel rooted blues shouting along with guitar pyrotechnics led to his reputation as a staggering live and influential performer. His guitar playing is not as upfront on these recordings as are his vocals, but man could he sing. The disc of his Atco recordings that Atlantic (I believe) issued a few years ago has the guitar upfront and well worth getting."
