Peter Chatman, better known as Memphis Slim, bridged the gap between rural juke joint barrelhouse piano and the emerging uptown blues styles of the late 1940s. This fine collection of 78s, recorded between 1940 and 1948 on a variety of small labels, illustrates what a fine singer and writer he was, in addition to showcasing his piano skills. The stately title track was written and recorded by Slim originally in 1948, under the title "Nobody Loves Me." Lowell Fulson covered it a few years later, changing its title to "Every Day I Have the Blues," and both B.B. King and Joe Williams had hits with it under that title in 1955. Other highlights here include the joyful "Old Taylor," "Blues at Midnight," which features the great Jazz Gillum on harmonica, and "Kilroy Has Been Here," complete with its speed talking verses that prefigure rap The gorgeous, droning horn work in "Angel Child" is a particular delight, and some contemporary neo-soul singer should cover this song immediately. Available at a budget price, this collection of early Memphis Slim classics is a wonderful buy, and combined with one of his later releases (like At the Gate of Horn), gives the measure of this fine musician. ~Review by Steve Leggett
