**********************************************

This was a great show. It really went by way too fast and I wish it was much, much longer. Watermelon Slim is a fantastic harp & slide guitar player, as well as a thoughtful & intelligent Blues musician. It was a true pleasure to experience this concert. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Fight the Loudness War! No compression was used in the post-processing of this recording to preserve it's dynamic range, listenability and authenticity.
This recording will naturally sound much better cranked up loud with quality headphones!
Peace & enjoy,
Seth
