Harmonica player and singer James “Slim Harpo” Moore patrolled the Louisiana swamplands for the Excello Label from 1957 to 1966, recording slinky, lubricious numbers such as “Baby Scratch My Back” and “I’m a King Bee” (note Fats Perrodin’s supernatural bass), which found favor with the Rolling Stones and other young white shapers of blues-dripping rock ‘n’ roll. This collection has the aforementioned and sixteen more of the grinning iconoclast’s wettest and spongiest grooves, including three 1967-70 tunes outside the Excello fold. There have been many Slim Harpo best-ofs available over the years, some frustratingly incomplete. This one gets all the chart hits together with several of the obscure singles like “Wonderin’ and Worryin’,” “Strange Love,” “One More Day,” and “You’ll Be Sorry One Day,” along with album tracks like “Snoopin’ Around” and “Blues Hangover.” Transfers are clean and exemplary, and this makes as good an introduction into his music as any currently available.
