This release was a 2018 Record Store Day exclusive title.

Slick! - Live at Oil Can Harry's is a never before released recording from soul-jazz guitar great Grant Green captured live on September 5, 1975 in at a popular club in Vancouver, BC Canada called Oil Can Harry's. Featuring a primarily Detroit-based band with Emmanuel Riggins (father of drummer Kariem Riggins) on electric piano, Ronnie Ware on bass, drummer Greg Vibrations Williams (Jack McDuff, Lou Donaldson) and Gerald Izzard on percussion, Slick!'s centerpiece is the over 30 minute funk exploration medley of Stanley Clarke's Vulcan Princess, Skin Tight by the Ohio Players, Bobby Womack's The Woman's Gotta Have It, Boogie on Reggae Woman by Stevie Wonder and For the Love of Money by the O'Jays. This recording was originally broadcast on CHQM-FM and has been transferred from the original 10 reels to reveal a sterling sonic experience. Aside from Resonance's companion piece, Funk in France, being released simultaneously with this recording, this is only the fourth live recording released of the under appreciated soul-jazz guitar hero. Captured three years after the classic Live at the Lighthouse album released on Blue Note in 1972, this marks the latest known official live Grant Green recording on CD and LP.

Available exclusively for Record Store Day on April 21, 2018, the hand numbered, limited edition of 2,000 2LP gatefold are mastered at the legendary Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at 33 1/3 RPM by Record Technology Inc. (RTI)
