Booker T. Laury
grew up with Memphis Slim
and the two are good friends. Consequently, his piano style has much of the same barrelhouse sound as Slim's
has stayed in Memphis, however, playing in the same clubs his entire life. Although some foreign albums were released, he had no domestic full-length. Therefore, Bullseye Blues released Nothin' but the Blues
, with Laury's
voice and piano the only instruments on the record.
