Editorial Reviews

Watermelon Slim returns with another gem from Nashville - Ringers. Recorded with the finest country musicians in the US, Ringers is not only great country, but it is tinged with some great rock and some great blues. And, Slim is back touring the country as never before.

I was driving down the freeway listening to the local Pacifica station when they played "Please Take This Cup From Me" without any attribution to the artist. I was so taken with the direct, honest delivery of the song and the unadorned but beautiful harmonies that I memorized the title and searched it on Amazon when I got home. I had never heard of Watermelon Slim... and I also learned that the song/album wasn't due to be released for another three days.

That gave me time to listen to his back catalog and become amazed and delighted at the work he has done in the past few years. When June 1 rolled around I had already downloaded three of his albums; "Ringers" made four. I haven't regretted a minute of it. The country cuts of Ringers may be a slight detour, but they get the full Watermelon Slim treatment and stand up nicely to his more bluesy efforts. It's all part of being shown some pieces of his remarkable life (do not overlook his biography). Buy and enjoy.

~ Bluesman Watermelon Slim has always added a slight country twang to his excellent blues albums such as "Watermelon Slim and the Workers" and "Wheel Man". However, with "Ringers" he has stepped almost completely into the realm of country and western. Not the highly produced country coming out of Nashville and Los Angeles, but the good old county music that you will find in the roadhouses of Texas and Oklahoma.
~ Highlights include "Please Take This Cup", a song about a man's struggle with the bottle. On a lighter note, there's a bluesy honky tonk story of true love "I Appreciate That". "Good Old Boys Never Change" is a bouncy barroom rocker. "End of the Line" laments the death of our nation's railroads at the hands of big oil, and "If There Is Any Heaven" is a gospel-flavored cry of grief that takes a dark look at the world we live in while managing to find a glimmer of hope and light. Slim also covers a few classics in his own style: Conway Twitty's "Tight Fittin' Jeans" gets a bluesy makeover; Moe Bandy's classic "Soft Lights and Hard Country Music" has a hint of swing; and Jimmy Buffet's "He Went to Paris" is given a melancholy reading.
~ Highly recommended for people who like their country music shaded with the blues.

Another of several CDs I bought of this singer. I love his music and have him shuffled into my playlists. I can always tell when it is a watermelon slim song. Would recommend for sure

As much traditional country as it is Oklahoma meets the Delta blues, Watermelon Slim plays killer slide guitar and sings his hiney off. The songs are a nice selection of covers and originals. Get it.
