Slim Harpo - Buzzin’ The Blues – The Complete Slim Harpo 5CD Boxset + BOOK (CD)

119,00

The complete works of one of the masters of Louisiana ’swamp blues’ and ’swamp pop.’
Five CDs containing 142 tracks and a 104 page book with many rare photographs and
illustrations.

CDs 1 and 2 hold all Slim Harpo’s Excello label 45s and original album tracks.
CDs 3 and 4 have all the recordings unissued in Harpo’s lifetime and all the alternative takes of
issued songs.
CD 5 features a live recording made in 1961, one of the very earliest to capture an original and
important blues artist in their prime.

There are four previously unissued live songs and one previously unknown song.
Slim Harpo made his impressive entrance into the world of blues recordings in 1957. Here was a man with an unforgettable
name, a strong song – I’m A King Bee – and a finely-crafted minimalist style, at once familiar and novel. In 1961 he made a
crossover entry into the American Rhythm ’n’ Blues and Popular Music charts when Rainin’ In My Heart became one of
those barely-categorisable hits that just couldn’t be ignored. Then came Baby, Scratch My Back, a soulful rhythmic number
that led to tours with the rock elite.
The story of Slim Harpo and his music is among the most fascinating in all blues and Rhythm ’n’ Blues. Harpo’s music had
timeless and mellow qualities that made his sound both authentic and accessible. By many benchmarks he was a success, and
for periods in his life he was in the spotlight, yet little, really, is known of him beyond his fading circle of musicians, friends,
and family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Born in 1924, he was among the last of the original down-home bluesmen, but also
one of the first to register hits in the popular music charts.
Harpo made music that was ’pure’ blues in a number of forms but also borrowed from and wandered into soul and country
styles without losing face. It’s easy to listen to, easy to love, but real. It has an underlying intensity that continues to make it
appealing to generations of performers who have recorded Harpo’s songs down the years.
