Too SLIM And The Taildraggers - Wanted, Live! 1996
Too Slim & The Taildraggers are an awesome blues/rock band. All of their albums rock and make you want to get up and dance. I have seen them perform live several times and they are even better. All of their albums are a must have for the true blues fan.
By Jennifer Torpy.
Taildraggers Best Regional Band for five consecutive years, beginning in 1995. The Inland Empire Blues Society dubbed them Best Blues Band for four straight years, from 1995 through 1998. The same blues society honored the CD Blues for EB as Best Album in 1998, and gave the same honor to the CD Swamp Opera two years earlier. For three consecutive years beginning in 1995, the society also named the band's guitarist the best of his kind and placed him in the Hall of Fame, as it did for the band's drummer in 1996, 1997, and 1998.(Wanted, Live! 1996)
The Taildraggers' bass player was also honored as Best Bassist in 1995. The Washington Blues Society conferred awards, too: one in 1996 for Best Blues Song, and another three years earlier for Best Songwriter.
