AVID Roots presents four classic Memphis Slim albums plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
“Memphis Slim”; “Memphis Slim”; “The Real Boogie Woogie”; “The Real Honky Tonk” plus two tracks from the E.P. “Goes To Kansas City”.
These four albums catch Slim in two different guises. “The Real Boogie Woogie” his first album for Folkways, recorded in July 1959 and issued in 1960 and “The Real Honky Tonk” issued later that year, were solo recitals. Slim was then in his mid-40’s - he was born in Memphis in 1915. For the two albums and two E.P.s made in July 1960, Alexis Korner played guitar and Stan Greig drums. For a fascinating insight into the recording of these sides we refer you to the original notes from the “Kansas City” E.P. by Alexis Korner contained within this release. For our four album selections we refer you to an essay written by Tony Russell in October 2014, also contained within this release.
All four albums plus have been digitally re-mastered
