Louisiana bluesman Lightnin' Slim (née Otis V. Hicks) began entertaining bar patrons in his native Baton Rouge in the 1940s. By the '50s he was releasing singles on the now-legendary Excello label (the blues division of Nashville-based Nashboro). This album, his first full-length, appeared in 1960 and compiles many of those classic '50s sides. Slim plays a searing electric here and is often accompanied by his brother-in-law, Slim Harpo, on the harmonica, along with a full, rollicking rhythm section heavily influenced by the R&B coming out of NOLA at the time. Lightnin' Slim deserves a place alongside the more often mentioned blues legends of the '50s, like Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and Howlin' Wolf; for proof, one needs to look no further than this excellent debut album.
