Reissued 3/26/21, originally released 1966

The quintessential swamp blues specimen in its mighty mono glory! Slim Harpo's swamp blues stylings earned him almost instantaneous success, his first single quickly becoming a blues standard and later a British Invasion darling. Originally released on Nashville's Excello Records, Slim's '66 LP is full of his signature harmonica and nasal tenor, its double entendre-laced title track being the most successful of his short career. Influential to a wide array of artists (Otis Redding, The Rolling Stones, Flamin' Groovies, and many others have covered Slim's songs), Baby Scratch My Back gets its long overdue first reissue!
