Junior Wells – Hoodo Man Blues

“Now I buzzed your bell this morning / You had your elevator running slow / I buzzed your bell, little woman / To take me on the third floor”

Junior Wells is one of greatest blues vocalists and harmonica players and an icon of Chicago blues. Like many of the greats he drew influence from Sonny Boy Williamson. Wells recorded with, among others, Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, The Rolling Stones and the great Buddy Guy. He died in 1998.

This is Wells and Guy performing Hoodo Man Blues. It’s  a little out of sync, but who cares?
