Synopsis by Mark Deming
In a world where blues bands are becoming increasingly slick and polished, Magic Slim and the Teardrops are proof the real deal still exists. Slim's tough, smoky vocals and incisive guitar work are Chicago barroom blues at its best, and this performance video captures the man and his band in their element -- on stage, drawing sweat for a room full of fans. Recorded during at gig at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in 2005, Magic Slim and the Teardrops: Anything Can Happen includes the songs "Black Tornado," "Mind Your Own Business," "The Man You Need," "Crazy Woman," "I Ain't Looking for No Love," and more.
