"One of the finest piano players and vocalists of post-war Chicago blues, Mississippi native, Sunnyland Slim first came to prominence playing on the Chicago scene with the likes of Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter and Muddy Waters. By 1947 he had landed a recording contract with Aristocrat, in September of that year with none-other-than Muddy Waters on guitar. This, of course, led to Muddy's historic signing to the label soon afterward. However, 1961's 'Slims Shout' finds this giant of the Windy City in far-off New Jersey, doing a classic recording session for the Bluesville label. Here, Slim lays down favorites like 'The Devil Is A Busy Man', 'It's You Baby', and the driving 'Shake It'. Also featuring two bonus tracks not found on the original vinyl: 'Everytime I Get To Drinking' and 'Tired Of You Clowning'!" (label info)
