Magic Slim
Black Tornado
Blind Pig Records

For straight, no-frills house rockin' boogie you just can't beat Chicago icon Magic Slim. On Black Tornado (Blind Pig 5046; 46:40) he whips his Teardrops into a frenzy on "Jealous Man," "Playing With My Mind" and the gritty "Wake Me Up Early." Slim stings on the title track and his signature "Magic Boogie" and his son Shawn guests on "Young Man's Blues." Rough, rockin' and real, like a Saturday night on Chicago's South Side.
