Slim could rock, too: "Well, I Done Got Over It," "Quicksand," "Certainly All," and the raucous "Guitar Slim" drive with blistering power. Saxophonist Joe Tillman was a worthy foil for the flamboyant guitarist in the solo department.

It's rare to find a blues guitarist hailing from Texas or Louisiana who doesn't cite Slim as one of his principal influences: Buddy Guy, Earl King, Guitar Shorty, Albert Collins, Chick Willis,...
