Junior Wells’ 1965 debut album, Hoodoo Man Blues, marked the arrival of a tough new generation of Chicago blues harmonica virtuosos that had begun with Sonny Boy Williamson II and Little Walter. Often performing alongside guitarist Buddy Guy, Wells’s intensity defined the Chicago blues harp at a time when the music was still shedding its country roots, inspiring new levels of acclaim. Born Amos Blackmore in Memphis, Tennessee, Wells toured with the Rolling Stones in the 1970s and is best known for classic recordings like “Messin’ With The Kid” and “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.”
