I love Magic Slim's music. There aren't many left playing the blues as Slim does. He grew up in Mississippi, brought the local blues to Chicago when he moved north, incorporated the hot Chicago scene into that music, and managed to carve his sound from the mix. After fifty years, that sound is still recognizeable after the first few notes... AND it still sounds fresh.
That said, I deducted a star because this CD relies so heavily on covers. On the other hand and by tradition, blues music is as often as not music "borrowed" from earlier versions and twisted to the moment, and Slim's versions here are strong enough statements of Slim's style to take their own footing.
If you like traditional blues, you can't go wrong with Magic Slim and with his versions on this CD of some blues classics.

I love Slim. The album starts off dripping greasy goodness. "Bad Boy" and "Steppin' Out" are nuts. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it doesn't really go anywhere from there. It's a fine album and I play it a lot. I've never seen him live, but he's at the top of that list.

Everything is here: the grinding shuffles, the deep slow blues, the houserocking blues, the great voice, the precision bass/drums, the stinging guitar. Slim left a great last album - if you liked the others you'll like this! I was lucky enough to be a Teardrop temporarily, and that was a real highlight of my life! Goodbye, Slim. You never let down!

Magic Slim continues to maintain a very high blues standard on his Blind Pig records.Whilst he does not compose so much original material,he can take any blues number and make it his own.Listen to my advice and buy all Magic Slim records on Blind Pig!

Slim is the same, Slim is on the same path, he is vigorous, his guitar is sharp and strident, he delivers same great sound, he entertains and he rules.

This album, Bad Boy, is his last work so far. Consisting of twelve masterfully selected songs (both covers and originals) this album was released on Slim's long-time recording partner, Blind Pig in 2012.

You find here slow Blues, Rockin' Blues, twelve-bar Blues etc. all spiced with badass guitar and vocals; band, which is extremely experienced and knowledgeable, and you'll absorb feeling and as we all know, Blues is all about the feeling; and, of course, as always, Slim demonstrates he can make any Blues song sound like his own, let this be Muddy Waters' "Champagne And Reefer" or Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Matchbox Blues"

One reviewer noted that there is "nothing new" in this album. This is highest praise to the work. When talking about Magic Slim, "new" could only mean worsening `cause better is practically impossible.

Personnel: Magic Slim (vocals, guitar); Jon McDonald (guitar, background vocals); Andre Howard (bass guitar, background vocals); B.J. Jones (drums, background vocals).

Recorded at Rax Trax Studios, Chicago, IL.

Great Magic Slim to add to my collection. Great songs with that Magic Slim grit all backed by the Teardrops who do not miss a beat. I have had the disc for 3 weeks and find myseld playing it over and over. Slim is the man!
