FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Goin’ to Mississippi’ Magic Slim and the Teardrops (2002)

Morris Holt (August 7, 1937 – February 21, 2013), known as Magic Slim, was an American blues singer and guitarist. Born at Torrance, near GrenadaMississippi, the son of sharecroppers, he followed blues greats such as Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf to Chicago, developing his own place in the Chicago blues scene.

With his band the Teardrops they played in the dim, smoke-filled juke joints popular in Chicago in the 1970s on bandstands barely large enough to hold the musicians.
