THE INCREDIBLE SOUND OF PIANO SLIM, FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!Piano SlimÑWillard Burton of Houston, TexasÑplayed with legendary musicians such as T-Bone Walker, Johnny Winter, Johnny Copeland, and Bobby ÒBlueÓ Bland; even so, he is often confused with another Piano Slim, Robert T. Smith. While Willard BurtonsÕ recording career lasted nearly thirty years, this compilation concentrates on his solo outings from 1959 to 1962, including his first two singles, plus a bonanza of previously unreleased masters. These songs range from the Sam Cooke influenced ballad of 'Raise Your Head' to the Little Richard and Fats Domino inspired rocker, 'Lotta ShakinÕ, Lotta of Jivin', to instrumental ravers such as 'Key Jammer', 'Do It Now', 'Aw Get It', and 'Pat Your Rock', to dance-craze themed songs such as, 'Look At Grandma Watusi!', 'Mister Twister', 'Spinning Top', and 'Ennis Lee'. So take a journey back in time with Piano Slim as your guide, itÕs a trip from which you may never want to return.
