Memphis Slim and the rock group Canned Heat, joined by the most famous horn-section in the USA, the Memphis Horns, give these recordings a richness that is seldom heard on a modern blues album; to hear them filling out Memphis Heat is a real pleasure. Made in the fall of 1970 and the summer of 1973, this album features Memphis Slim’s piano and strident vocals, but the other musicians have con¬tributed enormously to make the record “hot.” It is difficult to single out any one musi¬cian for special praise, so suffice it to say that this album is best heard as a group effort, one on which the fusion of piano and horns with one of the finest rock groups to have an understanding of the blues produces the real Memphis Heat.
