The History of Slim Harpo
The Rolling Stones released Exile On Main Street in May 1972, having been preceded by the Top 10 hit “Tumbling Dice”. Exile On Main Street was an immediate commercial success, hitting #1 worldwide just as The Rolling Stones embarked on their famed 1972 American Tour, their first in the U.S. in three years, and during which they played many songs from Exile On Main Street.
On October 2nd, 1964 The Kinks released their first album “You Really Got Me“. The title track, “You Really Got Me” was the result of a genius riff and the sound created by main song writer Ray Davies‘ brother, Dave Davies, slashing the cone in his amp to create one of the most influential songs of all time. Add to this appearances as session musicians of Jimmy Page and Jon Lord and you have an album of note to music fans.
