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.
Corey Harris & Henry Butler If I Was Your Man
Vu-Du Menz Alligator Records 2000
This was the only album made by the 2 future legends, Harris and Butler. It's a shame the 2 couldn't have recorded on a semi-regular basis, as the results are just so great! This song is a Harris/Butler composition.
