It was way back in the sixties that this album came out called Swamp Blues. It was basically a compilation from the Excello label in Louisiana with the producer J J Miller.
It featured such wonderful characters as Slim Harpo, Lonesome Sundown, Lazy Lester and Lightnin’ Slim.
I instantly recognised a number of tracks covered by the Kinks, Yardbirds and Stones. Slim Harpo was an unknown genius. A blues legend.
I started collecting my Slim Harpo! Superb!
I couldn’t find my photo of Slim’s grave but here’s me with Lazy Lester!
When I went to Louisiana I went and hunted out his grave. It had trees growing out of it. I paid homage to one of the greats.
Today I will play Slim Harpo real loud!! Got Love If You Want It!! I’m a King Bee!!
