"An absolute corker... Slim is a natural, on accomplished vocalist, superb guitarist and splendid songwriter. Long respected as a Bay Area bluesman's bluesman, this French ex-patriot, aka Frank Goldwasser, has honed his guitar, harmonica and vocal chops in the deep Oakland sounds of Sonny Rhodes, Cool Papa and Troyce Key. The popular Slim has just released his second album in six years. It's co-produced by Joe Louis Walker and in a word, it's stunning. "Bleedin' Heart" will hold up more than favorably against any blues release that will see a laser light this year."Vintage Guitar Magazine, December 1996, - David Hussong
"The French ambassador of American Blues... I hear a number of vocal influences,perhaps the most prominent being Texas master Johnny Winter; Slim has that level of intensity in his delivery... Forceful and soulful Playing. This one comes highly recommended,"Blues Access, Spring 1997 - Tali Madden
"One of the hottest of a new generation of West Coast Blues artists... An exciting and arresting outing... Plenty of in your-face guitar action, good songwriting and exceptional recording quailty... Total Blues Immersion."Blues Review, April/May 1997 - Thomas J. Cullen III
"...a tasteful package of modern guitar blues that should enhance the reputation of Paris Slim beyond the Bay Area."
