Junior Wells: In My Younger Days (1972)

Red Lightning 007

Hoodoo Man Blues was one of the first blues LPs I ever heard. I checked it out of the university library and recorded a cassette of it to listen to at work. Not long after, I was lucky to see Junior Wells and Buddy Guy in concert in a small venue that held about 300 people.

About half of the tracks on this LP are on the CD Calling All Blues; the rest are not on CD.

This was a thrift shop find (99¢), in good shape except for some scuffing on side 1.

From the LP: "Most blues collectors are aware of the extreme rarity of early American fifties blues 45s and 78s, which constitute this album."
