Nothin' But the Devil


Nothin' But the Devil by Ace Records UK at Silent Rider Music. MPN: 029667161626. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. The father of 'swamp blues' (that distinctive down-home-but-echo-laden-electric blues from Louisiana). Lightnin' Slim's songs boast lazy, indolent vocals, spidery, spooky guitar work (often played on the guitar's bass strings), a compelling, chugging rhythm, and a drum sound that shifts skillfully from light percussion to a sledgehammer blues beat. More than any other Louisiana blues artist, Slim kept his ear open in the 1950s to the sounds going on 'up north', particularly those by Muddy


Product Description & Reviews

The father of 'swamp blues' (that distinctive down-home-but-echo-laden-electric blues from Louisiana). Lightnin' Slim's songs boast lazy, indolent vocals, spidery, spooky guitar work (often played on the guitar's bass strings), a compelling, chugging rhythm, and a drum sound that shifts skillfully from light percussion to a sledgehammer blues beat. More than any other Louisiana blues artist, Slim kept his ear open in the 1950s to the sounds going on 'up north', particularly those by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Sonny Boy Williamson on the Chicago blues scene (who were all, of course, originally from the South). These sides recorded for the Excello label in the 1950s and 1960s include single releases, album tracks, alternate takes of old favorites (It's Mighty Crazy, Rooster Blues, My Starter Won't Work, I'm Leavin' You Baby and Sweet Little Woman) and previously unissued sides. The excellent little groups that back Slim include in their ranks the great Louisiana harmonica player Lazy Lester (he of I'm A Lover Not A Fighter fame). The various mood changes embrace the juke joint toughness of Lightnin's Troubles (a variation of Lightnin' Slim's Boogie), the brooding Howlin' Wolf-inspired country blues of I'm Leavin' You Baby and the stop-time up-tempo style of Long Leanie Mama.Collectors note: This series of Lightnin' Slim CDs includes one take, occasionally two, of every Slim recording known to have been sent to Excello. These takes include all the single masters, many of which are not widely known to today's blues listeners.
