Junior Wells: Messin' With the Kid

Junior Wells recorded this Blues classic in 1960.

He was best known as a harmonica player in the style of Little Walter, but it not feature here.

His Independent obituary from 1998 said:
The virtuoso Larry Adler took the harmonica to the concert hall and gave it respectability. Junior Wells took it right back to the gutter and gave it a fire and passion that made one think the instrument would burst at the seams.
