The blues virtuosos Junior Wells, started his first blues band when he was 14 years old. For reign of postwar blues harmonica king he battled his way bar by bar, club by club from Chicago to the Mississippi Delta. Arrested for shoplifting a harmonica, the case was dismissed, when the judge heard Junior play and paid the money owed. These events formed the legend and bring us to this new live CD, 'The Blues Is Alright!'., Skillfully recorded in 1994 with a stereo mix, superbly backed by a razor-sharp funky band well-versed in soul and blues, the recording captures the lightning-in-a-bottle essence of a classic blues R&B experience, tearing through a program of classic R&B and Junior's stellar blues hits. Funk juxtaposed against deep soul and blues, along with Junior's sly raps, cover artwork designed by illustrator William Stout, internationally renowned as one of the first rock 'n' roll bootleg cover artists, makes an excellent (and essential!) find for the blues connoisseur.
