• piano slim Look At Grandma Watusi! (CD, £15.50)

    label: Cicadelic Records

    Although Piano Slim played with legendary musicians such as T-Bone Walker, Johnny Winter, Johnny Copeland and Bobby "Blue" Bland, he is often confused with another Piano Slim, Robert T. Smith. The Piano Slim on 'Look At Grandma Watusi!' is none other than Willard Burton from Houston, Texas. While Burton's recording career lasted nearly thirty years, this compilation concentrates on his solo outings from 1959 to 1962, including his first two singles, plus a bonanza of previously unreleased masters.
