• Lightnin' SLIM - I’m a Rolling Stone - Louisiana Swamp Blues - The Singles As & Bs 1954-1962 Centenary Edition

A much loved purveyor of the real Louisiana swamp blues, Lightnin' Slim's body of work in no doubt defines the subgenre like no other.

This is the first time his singles have been compiled in one package and provide a unique opportunity to hear the progression of his music in chronological order just as the tracks would have appeared on jukeboxes and radio stations across Louisiana.

Most tracks feature the harmonica support of Lazy Lester and of course no Lightnin' Slim track should be without his exhortation 'Blow your harmonica, son' which has become something of a blues catchphrase.

So if you like loose rolling rhythms and just plain good blues music then look no further than this superb 2CD set from Jasmine.
