Lightnin' Slim (Otis Hicks), born March 13, 1913, near St. Louis, Missouri, moved with his family as a small child to the banks of the Mississippi River region, and lived at St. Francisville, L. where he was raised. Lightnin' Slim was known as the "King of the Blues" in Louisiana, having influenced everybody. Along with his originals such as "Bad Luck Blues", "Rooster Blues", "Voodoo Blues" & "GI Slim Blues" that appear on this recording, Slim who played widely throughout the south, was also known for his ability to take material from other bluesmen, such as Lightnin' Hopkins, Muddy Waters, Guitar Slim et. and turn their songs into something completely his own.
The acknowledged kingpin of the Louisiana school of blues, Lightnin' Slim built his style on his grainy but expressive vocals and rudimentary guitar work, with usually nothing more than a harmonica and a drummer in support. It was down-home country blues edged two steps further into the mainstream, first by virtue of his electric guitar, and second by the sound of the local Crowley, LA musicians who backed him being bathed in simmering, pulsating tape echo. 6 Poor Lightnin' Blues 7 Woke Up Feelin' Blue 8 Bad Luck 9 I'm Him 10Strange Letter Blues 11 She's Gone Lightnin Slim – vocal, guitar Schoolboy Cleve – harmonica, vocal (tracks 9,11) Sammy Drake - drums Recorded : Crowley LA 1954.
A much loved purveyor of the real Louisiana swamp blues, Lightnin' Slim's body of work in no doubt defines the subgenre like no other.
