Album Review
MC Dizzy Jackson
Reviewed 2013-08-08 
Slim’s been in the business since the ’70’s and has a raspy, gravelly well-lived voice. He plays some killer southern rockin’ blues, dirty, mean and raw w/ insane slide gtr and a tight band. Mostly originals, and a sea shanty! (#14). Solid stuff. FCC #10.

*My Favorites*: 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, 13, 15.

1. (4:03) Mid Good-time barroom blues boogie.
2. *(2:50) Mid. Title track. Dirty blues w/ killer vcl.
3. (4:52) Slow. Jazzy bluesy piano dirge, m & f vcls.
4. *(3:15) Mid. Allman Bros-ish vibe, a bit dirtier.
5. *(2:25) Mid. Killer slide gtr, sparse then full band, topical lyric.
6. *(4:56) Mid. Classic Slim Harpo tune. Dirty harmonica, gtr.
7. (5:12) Mid. Mean mood, killer slide, jammin’.
8. *(4:20) Mid. ‘Rollin’ And Tumbln’ vibe. Solid take.
9. (3:23) Mid. Another Harpo classic. Fairly faithful take.
10. (4:03) Mid / Fast. FCC ‘bullshit’. Rockin’ romper, w/ gtr solos.
11. (3:20) Slow. A Capella story-song. Slight Captain Beefheart vibe.
12. *(2:28) Mid. Big sound, gritty blues w/ insane harmonica, gtr.
13. *(2:57) Mid. Fun bluesy travellin’ country romp.
14. (5:14) Mid. A Capella sea shanty.
15. *(5:00) Mid. Dirty, mean rockin’ blues, more topical stuff.
16. (4:02) Slow / Mid. Sparse mellow acoustic end-song.
