ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songwriter/keyboardist/singer Shrimp City Slim and crew epitomize the genre known as the "Lowcountry blues", a rollicking blend of groovy shuffles, coastal funk, and swampy ballads that reflects the multi-cultural heritage of their home base, Charleston, SC.

"I Work Nights", Shrimp City Slim's fifth all-original CD released in 1998, documents a fascinating period in the artist's career.

At this point in time, the band was a sextet with two women singers with a huge repertoire of original material.

"I Work Nights" contains twenty (20) new songs including "Charleston Strut", "Hey Mr. DJ", the first version of "Switch Me Over (To Love)" (sung here by Ann Caldwell; later a show-stopper for Wanda Johnson), "The Grass Is Greener", "Stick & Stay","Color Me Indigo", and more.

Shrimp City Slim continues to travel worldwide. Performance dates/venues at his web site.

An important slice of Lowcountry music history...we think you will love this album.

Paul Lewis (Blues & Rhythm, UK)

Shrimp City Slim makes records that sound like nobody else
Shrimp City Slim makes records like nobody else, certainly nobody working largely in the blues field..clearly a songwriter of great individuality and real skill. "I Work Nights" is not a record for the purist or the casual listener. It will repay repeated plays however, but I warn you that if you give it enough time and attention, it will hook you real, real bad. Personally, at the moment, I can't play anything else.

Blues Access

An enjoyable trip through more genres than you can count
Charleston band uses blues as only part of their schtick...an enjoyable trip through more genres than you can count.

Rich Schneider (Blues Beat)

Twenty originals, smoothly performed
"I Work Nights"...he certainly does, days, too! His latest CD offers 20 catchy originals displaying a potpourri of styles, moods and rhythms. They're all smoothly performed by his splendid combo, obviously welded tight by considerable seasoning.
