Bluesman Magic Slim had a slow career start in Chicago, playing clubs and making a few singles in the 1960s and early 1970s. It was to be the now classic first album Born On A Bad Sign that would make Magic Slim and The Teardrops famous. It was recorded live in 1976 in Ma Bea’s Club, Chicago, for the French MCM label run by Marcelle Morgantini. This superb reissue shows exactly why it has endured as the definitive Magic Slim album.
