Covering the later years of Guitar Slim's rather short career, this 15-track compilation consists of tracks recorded from 1955 until the bluesman's death in 1959. Though most fans agree that Guitar Slim's earlier sessions for Specialty Records are the high point of his career, THE ATCO SESSIONS cherrypicks the best tunes from his tenure at Atco, leaving aside the misguided attempts to put the idiosyncratic bluesman into a more standard rhythm and blues or rock and roll format. The opening track, "Down Through the Years" is a classic on the level of his earlier masterpiece, "The Things I Used To Do." "If I Should Lose You," "It Hurts To Love Someone," and the two instrumentals both titled "Guitar Slim Boogie" are also more than worth the price of admission.
