The Original King Bee
200gm vinyl LP pressing. James Isaac Moore aka Slim Harpo epitomized the swamp blues style and just as Louis Armstrong forever tethered jazz to New Orleans and Clifton Chenier fixed Lafayette as home to zydeco, Harpo established Baton Rouge as a base for the blues. His remarkable legacy includes such landmark hits as "Rainin' in My Heart," "Baby Scratch My Back" and of course the immortal "I'm A King Bee." The latter even had Mick Jagger proclaiming, "What's the point in listening to us doing 'I'm A King Bee' when you can hear Slim Harpo do it?"
