Southside Slim at A Day of Music-Fullerton

"There was plenty of this happening at the Fullerton Museum Plaza. I caught the searing guitar acrobatics of Southside Slim, who gets his Stratocaster as hot as I have ever heard single coil pickups sound.

Henry Harris grew up in Oakland in the 70's and early 80's listening to a wide range of innumerable musicians, including Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Van Halen, and the Isley Brothers. He spent his mid-20's hanging out in Hollywood. During his Hollywood years he fortuitously met up with the great LA blues guitarist Ray Bailey.

MusicLife Under Pressure

Slim's new album Life Under Pressure evolved from jamming in the studio while the tape was rolling. Slim then gave selected songs, improvised during that session, to top shelf musicians, including Willie McNeil and Norman Weatherly. The result is an accomplished CD that retains the punch of its original conception.
