Album Notes
Lowcountry bluesman Shrimp City Slim, based in historic Charleston, SC, and his hard-hitting band have earned an international reputation for their provocative (and danceable) coastal Carolina blues music.

"Highway 17", their sixth CD, is a truckload of wild live tracks recorded in Charleston, Savannah, Charlotte, and Torino, Italy.

The anthemic "Highway 17" leads the way, with other special moments being "Lowcountry Mama" ('while my brother's up North shovellling snow'), "Call Me in Carolina", "Something in the Water" (as featured on Turner South's "Off the Menu" (TV), "Long Way to Go", and other staples of Shrimp City Slim's live shows.

Truly a party on a disc, "Highway 17" is the perfect souvenir of a Shrimp City Slim concert AND the ideal introduction to the exciting sounds of Lowcountry blues.

Jiggy, Diddy, Bopping!!!
I am enjoying the diversity of short stories and language used in this cd. It is upbeat, soulful and fun to listen to when your down and out, having a party, or just...bored. Your spirits will surely be lifted. Thanks for creating a great cd.


get this!
i've had this one for a few years, and have seen shrimp city slim on many occasions. if you don't have the recording, get it now and get ready to hear great music. then, get out to one of the venues and listen to the man and the band is a musical experience you don't want to miss!!!

Blues Revue

Deep blues feel...thumbs up!
Piano man Shrimp City Slim was raised in Chicago, where he had opportunity to hear many of the greats before moving to Charleston, SC 20 years ago. It's there in the grooves...jaunty Windy City boogie, deep blues feel...thumbs up!

Vicente Zumel (La Hora del Blues, Spain)

Authentic genuine deep blues...a musician to bear in mind
Shrimp City Slim performs authentic, genuine deep blues with a lot of energy. This is a musician to bear in mind. GREAT.

Juke Blues (UK)

Subtle musicianship and entertaining songs
Gary Erwin (Shrimp City Slim) has been seen on many occasions in Europe, often backing visiting bluesmen Chicago Bob Nelson and Big Daddy Pattman. 'Highway 17' is a collection of live recordings featuring his small combo...subtle musicianship and entertaining songs.

Blues in Britain

Extremely danceable and melodic blues sound
He produces an extremely danceable and melodic blues sound, with a sense of humour often in evidence...propulsive playing and fine vocals make for a refreshingly controlled live set.

A fan in Greenwood, SC

I can't get enough of this album
Since hearing this on the jukebox at the Fox & Hounds pub in Greenwood, I went out and got a copy and now am hooked. I can't get enough of this album. Thank you again.

Paul & Rhonda Smart

Charleston blues
We went on the blues and barbecue cruise recently and really enjoyed this band. Anyone who likes modern blues should like this. It's really fun and danceable, too. I also bought the piano album "Rio Angie"; together a nice match.

Gustavo Rozenberg from Good Time Blues radio program ( Argentina
