HooDoo Man Blues
The 1965 Debut album of blues vocalist and harmonica player Junior Wells. A perfect compliment to any collection. A great CD, a better piece of vinyl! Even better? Doing the singing with Junior Wells’ Chicago Blues Band on this 19-track recording, a young Buddy Guy.
This Branford Marsalis-infused and influenced piece of funk-driven jazz is the perfect compliment to a bloody mary Sunday morning or an Abita beer Saturday night.
This album is ridiculously good. Different as it begins, it sucks you in. This may sound trite, but the title of the disc is apropos. It truly takes you to a flow state. You pay attention to this album. You listen to her voice, you listen to the layer upon layer in her songs and then you realize, it’s just her. As a first effort, this album is as good as it gets. pay attention to “Salvation” and “Pink Moon” and enjoy.
