Magic Slim and the Teardrops at their best
K. Simms | 10/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Quite simply the best blues DVD I've seen. Magic Slim's beautiful and extended solos are pristine, every note crystal clear. The teardrops lay down a groove in the first cut that's irresistible and it follows them throughout the set. Vernal Taylor's drumming is impeccable, especially the work on the high-hat; Jon McDonald's driving rhythm and tight solos really set the tone. Christopher Biedron provides solid though unobtrusive bass support. In my view, all numbers are superior to the studio versions. If you're a blues lover, this could be the best twenty bucks you'll ever spend."
A blues lesson

"For those who don't understand the difference between playing playing a blues tune, or playing blues-style, and playing the -the- blues, Magic Slim clears all confusion. Everything here is straight-ahead: shuffles, "lumps"(Jimmy Reed) slow blues, and fat-back. No fancy tricks, no jazzy add-ons, no technique-based showing-off. So what's so special? Real blues phrasing and tone, in a way that simply has to be heard to be understood. Every note has a purpose, and is dripping with the flavor of Slim's Mississippi-to-Chicago background."
Great way to remember a great performer

"I was so happy to get this DVD of Magic Slim performing. Magic Slim is getting older and someday we won't be able to enjoy his live performances anymore. Having this DVD is a great way to preserve that."
A little surreal, but a nice DVD

"It is a little odd so see Magic Slim playing that venue to the crowd present. In any event, the production is good, the band is good and the crowd is into it and I am thankful to have a good quality AV recording of Magic Slim."
