The Hound does his usual excellent job of laying out all the info on Frankie Lee Sims, here. Unfortunately, the links on that post appear to be broken. But then again, if they were working there wouldn't be much use in me offering up this tune, would there?
I haven't posted a lot of hard blues in the past, but I'll probably be offering more in the future, mostly 'cause I'm picking up more blues 45's than I have in the past. Which isn't because I'm just now becoming hip to the sound. I own a very nice stack of blues albums released in the late sixties/early seventies which were originally my dad's. I've been doing my best to wear them out since I was a kid.
Which brings me to the question: If you already own the albums, "Hate To See You Go", "Confessin' The Blues", and "Boss Blues Harmonica", all by Little Walter.....do you really need to own his Checker label 45's too?
Answer: Not really, not unless the sight of a Checker web-top 45 of "Mellow Down Easy" makes you break into a sweat.
So, is it hot in here, or is it just me?
Hope ya'll enjoy....
