Magic Slim - I Need Lovin'

...continued from the previous post...

Slim's recording career began in 1966, with the song "Scufflin'", followed by a number of singles into the mid 1970s. He recorded his first album in 1977, "Born Under A Bad Sign", for the French MCM label.

In 1982 the guitarist John Primer joined the Teardrops and played with them for 13 years. Another great guitarist who played with Magic Slim (for 6 years this time) is Michael Dotson.

In 1994 Slim moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, where the Zoo Bar had been booking him for years. Slim was frequently accompanied by his son Shawn (Lil' Slim) Holt, an accomplished guitarist and singer.

In 2003 Magic Slim and the Teardrops won the W.C. Handy Award as "Blues Band Of The Year" for the sixth time. They released a live performance on CD and DVD in August 2005, entitled "Anything Can Happen".

Last year Slim released an album with the title "Bad Boy" (Blind Pig label). He was the last record of a very successful career!...

Sending a final farewell to his last trip of him, we enjoy Magic Slim in a song entitled "I Need Lovin'"...




You sure have our love Magic Slim... Good bye... We are never going to forget you...
