Happy Birthday Junior Wells

Posted on: Saturday, Dec 9, 2006


One of the all time greats Junior Wells was born on this day in 1934; he died in 1998.  You can read a little about his career at Blues Harp Legends, also there is a nice personal view of Junior from Bob Koester the founder of Delmark records.

There are a few YouTube clips of Junior Wells and this one is a killer, how much more raw and exciting can music get?  Every person watching X-Factor tonight or anyone who has bought the top selling CD by Westlife should be forced to watch this video until they come to their senses.  It *is* the real deal.
