Junior Wells: Messin' with the Kid

He was one bad dude, strutting across the stage like a harp-toting gangster, mesmerizing the crowd with his tough-guy antics and rib-sticking Chicago blues attack. Amazingly, Junior Wells kept at precisely this sort of thing for over 40 years - he was an active performer from the dawn of the 1950s to his death in the late '90s.
Junior Wells - real name Amos Blackmore - recorded Messin' with the Kid in 1960.
