Exlusive Limited Edition Of 500copies, 180 Gram Vinyl — Audiophile Pressing, Includes 2 Bonus Tracks
This essential release presents the blues masterwork "Slim’s Shout" (released on Prestige/Bluesville in 1961). The album was recorded by Rudy Van Gelder in his studio at Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, and features Slim as a leader, accompanied by Curtis and other jazz session players from the New York City scene, such as organist Robert Banks, bassist Leonard Gaskin, and drummer Belton Evans. Here Sunnyland Slim runs through a bunch of his own standards in pristine stereo sound. Highlights include “The Devil Is a Busy Man,” “Shake It,” and “It’s You Baby,” as well as the remake of “Sunnyland Special” – one of Slim’s most celebrated tunes.
Even though the original liner notes to "Slim’s Shout" state that it was his debut album, he had actually previously recorded an LP titled "Chicago Blues Session" for the small local label 77 Records.
The 2 bonus tracks contained on this collector’s LP vinyl limited edition, “Everytime I Get to Drinkin’” and an earlier reading of “Brownskin Woman,” belong to Chicago Blues Session.
