Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Slim Harpo (vocals, guitar, harmonica); James P. Johnson & His Orchestra, Rudolph Richard (guitar); Lazy Lester (harmonica); Sonny Martin (piano); Clarence "Jockey" Etinne, Sammy K. Brown (drums).
  • Liner Note Author: Jon Broven.
  • Recording information: Crowley, LA (1957-1964).
  • Slim Harpo brought a good bit of the Louisiana swamp vibe with him when he recorded these immortal sides for Jay Miller's Nashville-based Excello Records in the early '60s, and the rustic, laconic way these recordings unfold, aided and abetted by Miller's trademark echo-laden production, makes them singular even inside the Excello stable. This set sticks to Harpo's earliest Excello material, and therefore lacks some of his best-known tracks like "Baby Scratch My Back," the two-part "Tip on In," and "Te-Ni-Nee-Ni-Nu," but it does have his signature tune, "I'm a King Bee" (and its many variations, like "Buzzin'"), as well as the gorgeous "Rainin' in My Heart." Also included are a rare Harpo cover of John Lee Hooker's "Boogie Chillen'" and some wonderfully ragged gems like "Bobby Sox Baby." ~ Steve Leggett

I really enjoy swamp blues, because it is good for all occasions and it is really groovy and easy to dance to. I'm A kink Bee by Slim Harpo is a perfect example of good old fashioned swamp blues. I bought this and i absolutely love it, every song on here is a classic and pure brilliance.
