Poor Man Blues: Chicago Blues Session, Vol. 6
showcases the exceptional guitar skills of John Primer
, who long served as a guitarist for Muddy Waters
and Magic Slim
falls somewhere between the two, turning out tough Chicago blues fueled by his biting slide guitar. His original songs aren't particularly interesting, but they function as good vehicles for exciting jams. In the end, Primer
might not add anything new to Chicago blues, but he has a great time playing, and it sure is fun to listen to him play.
