Junior Wells Coming At You 180g LP
180g Vinyl LP! First Time On Vinyl In 40 Years!
Lacquers Cut From Original Analog Masters by Capitol Mastering's Ron McMaster!
The Chicago blues vocalist, harmonica player, and recording artist, Junior Wells
was one of the pioneers of the amplified blues harp-style associated with
Chicago. His signature songs was "Messin' With the Kid' and his 1965 album,
Hoodoo Man Blues, was described by Bill Dahl as 'one of the truly classic blues
albums of the 1960s."
One of the great electric blues albums of the ‘60s, this gem features harmonica
player and singer Junior Wells at his finest. With fellow Chicago musician Buddy
Guy on lead guitar, Coming At You showcases the two fiery musician’s talents in
the studio, as they play a selection of blues standards. Back on vinyl for the
first time in over 40 years, this 50th anniversary reissue was cut from the
original analog master, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and comes housed in a tip-on
"Another eminently solid outing by the legendary harpist that captures his
trademark barroom bravado in a studio setting. The band is quite tight -- Buddy
Guy and Lefty Dizz are the guitarists, Douglas Fagan plays sax, and Clark Terry,
believe it or not, occupies a third of the trumpet section -- and the set list
is dominated by oldies from both Sonny Boys, Willie Dixon, and John D.
Loudermilk (Junior invests his "Tobacco Road" with a lights-out toughness that
the Nashville Teens could never even imagine)." - allmusic.com
"The Original Blues Brothers," as Rolling Stone dubbed them (Buddy Guy and
Junior Wells), were frequent studio and stage collaborators throughout the ‘60s
and ’70s, producing some of their finest recorded work together. 2018 marks the
50th anniversary for both Buddy Guy’s A Man and the Blues and Junior Well’s
Coming at You, seminal albums from the Vanguard Records archives that were among
the first to capture Chicago’s signature electric blues sound. Both titles are
reissued on 180-gram vinyl cut from the original analog masters by Capitol
Mastering’s Ron McMaster.
