Sunnyland Slim ‎• Slim's Shout



In my opinion, of the recordings that I have listened to, it is the best Blues album that RVG has recorded.

Review by Bill Dahl
You wouldn't think that transporting one of Chicago's reigning piano patriarchs to Englewood Cliffs, NJ would produce such a fine album, but this 1960 set cooks from beginning to end. Sunnyland Slim's swinging New York rhythm section has no trouble following his bedrock piano, and the estimable King Curtis peels off diamond-hard tenor sax solos in the great Texas tradition that also mesh seamlessly. Slim runs through his standards -- "The Devil Is a Busy Man," "Shake It," "It's You Baby" -- in gorgeous stereo, and two unissued bonus cuts (including another of his best-known tunes, "Everytime I Get to Drinking") make the CD reissue of Slim's Shout even more appealing.

En mi opinión, de las grabaciones que he escuchado, es el mejor disco de Blues que RVG haya grabado.

Reseña por Bill Dahl
No pensarías que transportar a uno de los patriarcas del piano reinantes de Chicago a Englewood Cliffs, NJ produciría un álbum tan bueno, pero este conjunto de 1960 cocina de principio a fin. La sección rítmica oscilante de Sunnyland Slim en Nueva York no tiene problemas para seguir su piano de lecho de roca, y el estimado Rey Curtis se quita los solos de saxo tenor duros como diamantes en la gran tradición de Texas que también se combinan a la perfección. Slim pasa por sus estándares: "The Devil Is a Busy Man", "Shake It", "It's You Baby" - en magnífico estéreo, y dos cortes de bonificación no emitidos (incluyendo otra de sus canciones más conocidas, "Everytime I Get to Drinking ") hacen que la reedición de CD de Slim's Shout sea aún más atractiva.
