This reissue of a live recording taken in Huntington Beach, California, and originally released in 1969, showcases harpster and singer Junior Wells's brash, intense Chicago style. The material is familiar--"Fever," "My Babe," "I'm Ready," and "Please, Please, Please," among others--but it's none the worse for that. Wells puts his own stamp on each performance with his growling voice and rich, aggressive harmonica, especially on "So Tired (I Could Cry)" and the aforementioned "My Babe." Wells and company rock out with "Don't Start Me Talking" and "How Many More Years," and lay back for "Elevate Me Mama." Even the CD reissue isn't completely clean; amplifiers peak and microphones feed back, and the recording lacks the polish of a studio album. In a way, that's a good thing. Wells, like many Chicago blues musicians, had a raw-edged intensity that was best captured in live performance. --Genevieve Williams
