featuring Matt "Guitar" Murphy

Memphis Slim's United recordings deserve special acknowledgment because, to put it bluntly, they're his best. Delmark 710, Memphis Slim U.S.A., presented the last two of his four United sessions. Now The Come Back brings listeners the complete first two sessions plus two auditions. There's much new to savor here including eleven previously unissued tracks containing two real revelations: super-guitarist Matt "Guitar" Murphy's first recorded vocal "Cool Down Baby" also featuring a jaw-dropping guitar intro, and the initial '52 version of "The Come Back" as a straight slow blues lacking the stop time arrangement. Piano blues at its best! 0-38153-0762-2-1
