ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Somewhere in between Hound Dog Taylor and Elmore James lies Plainfield Slim's first album "Another Mule In The Barn". A very very raw and nasty blues album that rocks from beginning to end. Produced by Gar Francis (from The Doughboys "Black Sheep" fame) the CD has received much airplay overseas and was named one of the best blues albums of 2007 by Brisbane, Austraila's 101.0fm radio. "Shake My Eggs" & "Marlene" seem to be the stand out songs on the airwaves.

Blues Underground Network review - Another Mule In The Barn
...Straight Ahead Take No Prisoners Back Yard Barn Burning Rockin' Blues is what Plainfield Slim is all about and that is certainly what you get on his new Debut Album "Another Mule In The Barn".

Plainfield Slim is the alter ego of Gar Francis, guitarist, songwriter for the Doughboys and in addition to Plainfield Slim his other solo project is The Groundhawgs. To say that Gar Francis is simply an immense talent may be an understatement as he not only wrote all the songs on "Another Mule In The Barn", he also plays all the instruments on this sizzling Debut.

With a megaphone style vocal delivery and a slide guitar that slices through the Blues like a hot knife through butter, Plainfield Slim has no problem getting our attention, and holding on to it.

"Another Mule In The Barn" consists of 11 Tracks, 10 of them of which are, "Get Off Your Butt And Get A Dancing Tunes" with one slow one in the middle so you can take a short rest, which is all you are going to get listening to this CD.

With "Another Mule In The Barn", Plainfield Slim has thrown some damn good fun into listening to the Blues and in doing so he has made one damn good Album...

Does it deserve my highest 5***** Rating, you betcha... Highly Recommended and Thoroughly Enjoyable... Can Not Wait For More... This is Kick-Ass Blues At It's Best...

Vintage Guitar Magazine CD review April's Issue 2010
"Doughboys guitarist Gar Francis alter ego delivers a smoking debut".
"Built on a wasp's nest of slide guitar, and Francis, .... is razor sharp"
"And the other elder whom Slim openly emulates is Chicago slide great Elmore James"
"a good job capturing the sweaty spirit ig high-energy/low down blues"

Another Mule in the Barn
Excellent album, a must have. Songs like "Marlene" hits right home when you each time you hear it. Raw and pure the whole album! Can not wait the next album from this band.
