  • Slim Harpo is among the most accessible, beloved, and commercially successful artists in blues history. The elements of Harpo's broad appeal included a genre-spanning musical approach (one hears a blend of country, rock & roll, and raucous electric blues), infectiously hooky melodies, a distinctive singing style marked by a nasal tone and careful annunciation, and Harpo's propulsive harmonica playing. Unlike many blues artists, too, Harpo stuck to one label, the Memphis-based Excello Records, whose muscular, echo-driven production and strong promotion helped push Harpo's recordings up the charts.
  • A double-disc, 44-song package, THE EXCELLO SINGLES ANTHOLOGY is hard to beat. The lead track, Harpo's theme song, "I'm a King Bee," from 1957, is alone worth the price of admission, and sets the stage for much of the swampy, churning music to follow. But one of the bluesman's best attributes is his range, amply demonstrated here by crooning ballads ("Rainin' in My Heart"), shuffling grooves ("Baby Scratch My Back"), John Lee Hooker-esque boogies ("Shake Your Hips"), radio-friendly pop ("Te-Ni-Nee-Ni-Nu"), and amped-up country (a cover of Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues"). THE EXCELLO SINGLES ANTHOLOGY works as a greatest-hits package and a definitive career retrospective, making it the perfect one-stop Slim Harpo purchase.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (9/18/03, p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This double CD, packed with forty-four tracks, will scratch anyone's itch for Slim Harpo's jaunty, grooving R&B....These are incomparably tangy sides from a true original..."
