With East Side Slim
East Side Slim takes you cruising on many musical roads, with all leading back to the crossroad - the blues. Come on along for the ride on Rhythm Highways. You'll hear American music - music that swings, rolls and comes from the soul. Tune in to hear blues, R&B, gospel, swing, soul, rock 'n' roll, jazz and roadhouse, even the occasional honky tonk or western swing song. Rhythm Highways - it's an East Side groove.

I had to blow the dust off this CD as I had allowed it to settle in my library for far too long. Lead vocals by Sheila Wilcoxson, with the band from the Portland, OR area I believe. Jeff Dawkins on harps and percussion, Whit Draper on guitars.
