Buddy Guy - Buddy and the Juniors (1970)

Audio CD (June 28, 2011)
Original Release Date: 2011
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Hip-O Select
ASIN: B0050GX7B8

A long overdue reissuing of this curious 1970 collaboration between guitarist Buddy Guy, harp player Junior Wells, and jazz pianist Junior Mance. The trio run through barely half-a-dozen numbers, including such standard blues warhorses as Willie Dixon's classic "(I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man," "Rock Me Mama," and Wells' "Ain't No Need." Not a classic recording, I'm told, but I'd still like to hear Guy bang away on his acoustic alongside Mance's bebop keyboard kicks (and, of course, Wells' incendiary harmonica). (Release date: 06/28/11)
This is deep down dirty blues as it was sung and played 100 years ago and will be sung and played forever! Get this album!
Players of instruments: Buddy Guy, acoustic guitar, Junior Wells, mouthharp, Junior Mance, barrelhouse piano.
Reason for session: pay for Buddy Guy's trip to New York City to mix an album for another label!
To think of all of where came from. One day. One guitar. One piano. And one harp.
