    Personnel: Memphis Slim (vocals, piano); Peter Chatman (vocals, piano); Billy Butler (guitar); Eddie Chamblee (tenor saxophone); Lloyd Trotman (bass guitar); Herb Lavelle (drums). Liner Note Author: Clyde Otis. Jubilee Records' 1967 LP Legend of the Blues, Vol. 1 finds singer/pianist Memphis Slim (aka Peter Chatman) accompanied by Billy Butler on guitar, Eddie Chamblee on tenor saxophone, and Herb Lovelle on drums for a session of some of his well-known numbers, notably the slow "Lend Me Your Love." Leadoff track "Little Lonely Girl" appears to be a version of "Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl" with slightly different lyrics, while some may know "Ramble This Highway" better as "Key to the Highway." Memphis Slim shows off his piano abilities on the instrumental "Broadway Boogie," but otherwise the ensemble supports him with jazz-blues arrangements for his smooth and authoritative vocals. There are so many Memphis Slim recordings that it's hard to call any of them definitive, but this session is very good. ~ William Ruhlmann
