If you've got a good groove, is there anything wrong with sticking with it? Slim Harpo's funky blues groove was so good that OTHER people borrowed it for their own records. It doesn't bother me really. I don't mind derivative records as long as they're good. I can't get enough of a good thing when it comes to records.
Slim Harpo was born on this day in 1924 in Lobdell, LA. He started out as a Jimmy Reed-influenced harmonica blues artist in the late 1950s. However, once he found his 1966 "Baby Scratch My Back" reverb groove, he repeated the formula for a string of funky blues hits.
The Record of the Day was recorded by Slim in Nashville with the Hi Records Rhythm Section backing him up. That's why this one really cooks up the dance floor! Enjoy

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
