Too Slim & The Taildraggers
Sunday, 8pm, Clocktower Stage
Too Slim is really Tim Langford. Originally from Spokane, Washington, but living in Nashville now. With Jimmy Hall playing fabulous harp, Tom Hambridge on drums, and vocals, Rob McNelly on guitar, Tommy McDonald on bass, and Reese Wynans on keyboards; he has a cooking hot, burn your fingers and toes blues band.
Opening up with "Wash My Hands" in the muddy Mississippi to the last cut "Angels Are Back," Too Slim and the Taildraggers deliver a feast for our ears. With 11 cuts, you will not be disappointed with any of them. The more I listen to it the better I like it. I love the tempo of the band. Nobody gets in the way, and Slim must need a new fret job in his guitar after every gig. I mean he must have to apply Freon to cool that thing off. Playing great stuff since 1986, this is an EXCELLENT CD!
Before leaving the Great Northwest, Too Slim garnered several Best Band, Best Guitarist, Best Album, and Readers Poll Awards from the Northwest Media. He’s in Nashville now, and I think he’ll win a few more. Don’t let the summer go by without checking out this one. I’m glad this stuff is still around, and coming out of the Earth to feed us."
