Recorded live in Paris, this has the two blues legends accompanying each other (Slim on piano, Dixon on bass) and trading lead vocals, backed by drummer Phillipe Combelle. It's not a landmark event in either of the legends' distinguished recording careers, but it's a nice enough outing with a friendly, low-key tone.

Recorded in Paris during the year 1968, Memphis Slim's Lord Have Mercy on Me belongs among his best work in the straightforward blues category. Supported by bassist Henri Tischitz and drummer Michel Denis, Slim lays down 12 studies in Southern-born and Chicago-bred blues, prefacing each track with a spoken title and usually including the take number.

Roosevelt Sykes was a major blues pianist-vocalist since the late 1920s, inspiring Memphis Slim who emerged a decade later. In 1970, they gathered in a recording studio in Paris and the results are both historic and delightful. Sykes and Slim reminisce about the old days, talk about the origin of some of their songs, and joke a bit.

This choice chapter in the Memphis Slim story delivers an exciting taste of what a modern electric blues band sounded like in live performance during the early '70s. This reissue includes a bonus track featuring Hammond B-3 organist Deacon Jones and formidable electric guitar wizard Freddie King.

Memphis Heat documents Chicago blues piano legend Memphis Slim's studio collaborations with the rock group Canned Heat in France on September 18, 1970, and July 11, 1973. The results are tasty indeed. Slim's voice and piano are well matched by Henry Vestine's electric guitar, Canned Heat's rockin' rhythm section, and (on six out of 13 tracks) the Memphis Horns, a solid wind quintet of trumpet, trombone, two tenors, and a baritone sax. Memphis Slim tried on a lot of different styles and instrumental combinations during the 1970s.

During his career pianist and singer Memphis Slim excelled at Chicago blues, jump blues and acoustic folk-blues, always being very adaptable. He moved to France in 1962 where he was a star for many years. This double-CD has some of the very best of his recordings for the Barclay label, emphasizing his working groups on the first CD and some all-star dates on the second.

Dixon was the Rick Reuben of Chicago, the Quincy Jones of Chess, the George Martin of the post-war blues era and a damn fine musician to boot. His compositions are indescribably important to the history of modern music including 'Little Red Rooster', 'Hoochie Coochie Man', 'Spoonful', 'My Babe', the list goes on! Here we find him behind the mic and on the bass with fellow blues pianist legend Memphis Slim on his debut album 'Willie's Blues'.

Although this CD by pianist Memphis Slim and bassist Willie Dixon is marketed as a part of Verve's Jazz in Paris reissue series, it is, of course, a blues date, with a fair amount of boogie-woogie. The two veterans, who had worked together previously, are joined by drummer Phillipe Combelle during the two 1962 sessions recorded at Les Trois Mailletz, complete with a typically out of tune piano and a fair amount of noise from the audience at times.

Like many of the black blues and jazz musicians of his generation, Memphis Slim found both an audience and a home in Europe for the last 20-plus years of his life, basing himself in Paris beginning in 1962 and remaining there until his death in 1988. In that span he recorded an astounding 50 or so albums, not including the various recordings of his live performances that still continue to surface.

Memphis Slim (September 3, 1915 – February 24, 1988) was an American blues pianist, singer, and composer. He led a series of bands that, reflecting the popular appeal of jump blues, included saxophones, bass, drums, and piano. A song he first cut in 1947, "Every Day I Have the Blues", has become a blues standard, recorded by many other artists. He made over 500 recordings.
