Embracing the white college market like so many of his contemporaries Memphis Slim stepped into the international market and became a very famous ambassador for the blues around the world.

This 25 track set is littered with hits and classic songs including: 'Messin' Around', 'Frisco Bay', 'Blue and Lonesome', 'Help Me Some', 'Angel Child', 'Mother Earth' and 'The Comeback'. Also featured here is 'Nobody Loves Me' and although not a hit for Memphis it went on to be recorded by Lowell Fulson and B.B. King as 'Every Day I Have the Blues' eventually becoming a hit and a blues standard.

This modest selection of titles from the vast recorded legacy of Memphis Slim presents a vivid picture of the career path he followed from the juke joints of the South to the sophisticated bars of Paris, France and is a must for blues fans.

Fully detailed liner notes.
