“A blues hero goes country....the country of the seventies, before the homogenization of the Garth ages, the sound owes as much to Lynyrd Skynyrd as to Merle, Hank, and Waylon.”
"Slim's vocals - grittier than a country dirt road, tender when they need to be - are framed by excellent Nashville musicians"
- MOJO Magazine
Watermelon Slim is Back ans He is back with another incredible batch of country blues as only Watermelon Slim can do. Recorded in Nashville with some of the best musicians alive this cd is an amazing experience. Great songs, incredible musicians an the teffific sound coming from Slim's harmonica, dobro and face made this cd something our of the ordinary.
A blues artist singing some of the best country around is something special. This time around, Slim is a bit more bluesy and a bit more rocky. What riches for everybody.
We are sure that we are holding in our hand a terrific package, great music, great songs , great artwork and we are sure that this cd will be listening to for decads to come.
