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.
