Eagle Park Slim (RIP) - Late Late Love Shift (1985, Cassette Only)

Eagle Park Slim played around Eugene for decades, a community figure you just expected to always be there. I found out earlier today that he has passed away. This is the only release I have by Slim, kindly supplied by Erich Boekelheide a few years back. I believe this is the first Eugene release although I imagine Eagle Park Slim had a number of prior releases as well. RIP Eagle Park Slim, please donate to the Go Fund Me link to help pay for services if you can.

  1. sad news indeed. his own words work to describe him to me perfectly.

    Eagle Park Slim reminded me of what Eugene "could have been, should have been, used to be".

  2. Saw him at the Saturday Market a few times this year. Glad to know he was still out playing right until he passed. He made Eugene a better place and will be greatly missed.
