180 Gram Vinyl! Re-mastering by Ray Staff at Air Mastering! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

Five stars are just not enough for this great material, harp playing and that man Buddy Guy on guitar supported by his brother. Gems one and all. If you are a fan of one or both it is a must.

Recorded on Halloween night in 1979, this pairs up Wells and Guy in a fashion that hasn't been heard since Hoodoo Man Blues, their first, and best collaboration. Solid backing by The Philip Guy band (Buddy's brother) makes this album a rare treat.

"Wells and Guy would produce some of the most unabashed and deeply cool West Side blues recordings. There's the gentle blues shuffle of "It Hurts Me Too," made famous by Elmore James. There's the electric-blues muscle of the title tune. Finally, as a bonus track, there's the funky, clearly James Brown-influenced "I Smell Something." This is a fine recording - and certainly one of Junior's best little-known releases." -Nick DeRiso, Something Else! Reviews
