Guitar Slim Green's "Stone Down Blues" -- With Johnny and Shuggie Otis (Kent, 1970)

"A great deal has been written about the blues and the people who sing them. Most enthusiasts are familiar with the names of Elmore james, Muddy Waters, Sonnyboy Williamson, Lightnin' Hopkins and Little Walter, for these are the names of artists who have won wide recognition for their talents and their contributions not only to the blues, but to Rock & Roll as well.

However, one should be aware that there were others, some still around, that were equally as talented, but not as fortunate. All too often their contributions were quickly recognized, borrowed or stolen and the artists themselves ignored and forgotten. Such was almost the tragedy that occured with GUITAR SLIM GREEN..." (Cover notes)

I've said it before, the Boogie Blues aren't generally my thing. I tend to be fairly selective. This 1970 Kent outing by Norman "Guitar Slim" Green is good & solid, though. Kept me steady rocking through a huge load of dishes tonight, with no complaints. (Well, aside from the dishes.) The back-up from Johnny and Shuggie Otis doesn't hurt much, either. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly. Word.

Yes, loving it man. Agree with you about boogie blues, but also that this bucks the trend. Rad

Any hope of a re-up?

This album rarely turns up in the blogsphere and is not common in his original format.
