    ProducerPhilippe Rault

    Personnel: Memphis Slim (vocals, piano); Roosevelt Sykes (vocals, piano).
    Double-barreled indeed--one of the great blues piano-players and singers, Memphis Slim's songs were wordy, funny, and charismatic, and he learned much of what he knew from mentor Roosevelt Sykes, his collaborator here. This rare duet recording also features some fun and informative banter between the two. And for those keeping score at home, Memphis Slim's piano parts are in the left speaker, Sykes's on the right.

  • Critic Reviews
    Living Blues (p.65) - "DOUBLE-BARRELED BOOGIE is a terrific, stripped-down re-issue that includes many of the best-known tracks from Sykes and Slim..."
