Lowcountry bluesman Shrimp City Slim, based in historic Charleston, SC, and his hard-hitting band have earned an international reputation for their provocative (and danceable) coastal Carolina blues music. 'Highway 17', their sixth CD, is a truckload of wild live tracks recorded in Charleston, Savannah, Charlotte, and Torino, Italy. The anthemic 'Highway 17' leads the way, with other special moments being 'Lowcountry Mama' ('while my brother's up North shovellling snow'), 'Call Me in Carolina', 'Something in the Water' (as featured on Turner South's 'Off the Menu' (TV), 'Long Way to Go', and other staples of Shrimp City Slim's live shows. Truly a party on a disc, 'Highway 17' is the perfect souvenir of a Shrimp City Slim concert AND the ideal introduction to the exciting sounds of Lowcountry blues.
