This is Slim's first album since his 1973 "Merry Airbrakes." In short, he was struggling badly at the time of its recording and was definitely not recognized as the blues icon he is today. In my opinion, this is his finest hour musically. He had everything to prove and nothing to lose in a last ditch effort to finally get some exposure on the blues scene.

This album is very, very creative and represents the introduction of Slim's style of music which is completely fresh and exciting in my view. Watermelon is single-handedly revitalizing grass roots music and this album started it all. I think it was the best blues album in 20 years at the time it was released. Buy this album and enjoy!
