When Magic Slim thundered at the microphone, his voice rough and ragged, his guitar riffs tough and punchy listeners heard classic Chicago blues as it was conceived in the 1950s.
Not nostalgic or dated but simply unconcerned with latter-day musical fashion or commercial considerations.
That approach, which Mr. Slim clung to throughout his career, made him a symbol of Chicago blues around the world and an upholder of its noblest traditions.
Mr. Slim — who was born Morris Holt in Torrance, Miss., on Aug. 7, 1937 — died Thursday, Feb. 21, in a hospital in Philadelphia at age 75, after undergoing surgery for a bleeding ulcer, according to his son, Shawn Holt.
"He never sacrificed what his music was about," said Jerry Del Giudice, co-owner of Blind Pig Records, which began recording Mr. Slim in 1990 and continued to do so through his final release, last year's "Bad Boy."
Mr. Slim's music, added Del Giudice, "was Mississippi mud. … He electrified Mississippi blues. And he stuck with it. He was no rock-and-roller."
This concert was recorded 6 months before his untimely death... Magic Slim was everything the Blues is supposed to be.
RIP Mr Slim Your magic is already missed!!!!
