When people from Australia or Japan or Italy say, 'Oh, I love the blues,' they're not talking about the Southwest blues styles, the Georgia 12-string players, ragtime Piedmont styles or whatever. It's the Delta blues. If you say, 'Who do you like?' they'll name Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Son House - Dick Waterman, to Francis Davis, quoted in Davis' book

Iím probably late to the party but I came across the wonderful Guitar Slim (not that one!).
Some wonderful slide playing, picking and piano.

I knew Guitar Slim. He was quite a character! He was seldom recorded. Another LP on which he was featured is Lonesome Home Blues on the German L+R label. Slim was recorded by Axel Kustner and Ziggy Christman at his home in Greensboro, N.C. in 1980.

He's new to me and I really like it. Thanks Phil.
