The Essential Magic Slim

Magic Slim's only compilation from his most fruitful years on the well distributed and regarded Blind Pig label covers the period from 1990's Gravel Road through 2005's Anything Can Happen live set. That's six albums of material whittled down to 15 tracks yielding about an hour's worth of music. Since the guitarist rather doggedly stayed locked in the same style of gutsy electric Chicago blues, the 15-year time span doesn't hamper this disc's flow. Slim's vocals became more gruff and weathered through the years, but his meat and potatoes approach pretty much stayed locked in the medium tempo shuffles and slow blues that defined the genre after Muddy Waters and his crew plugged in. While that infers a somewhat monotonous product, Slim infuses enough energy and sweat into his rather pedestrian material to raise the level of the results beyond simply professional to often inspired. A modified country side road on the instrumental/surfy title track of Black Tornado and a savvy, non-chronological sequencing by the compilers keep the music flowing without sounding as repetitious as it is. Covers of Bo Diddley ("Before You Accuse Me"), Mack Rice (the eternal crowd pleaser "Mustang Sally"), and especially Howlin' Wolf (a tough, roaring "How Many More Years") also keep the album from getting locked into any particular style. While this music resonates most effectively in front of a raucous crowd in the type of beer stained blues joints that Slim calls his home, this album of studio highlights (and one live track) provides sufficient proof of the guitarist's abilities. Slim's obviously a journeyman whose intent is to keep the fires fanned on his electric Chicago blues roots. Judging by this set, he has succeeded where others with similarly good intentions come up short.
