An excellent recording from the 1974 Montreaux jazz fest.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This gem is a must have for fans of live blues. Buddy Guy and Junior Wells perform with an electricity that has seldom been matched. The production quality of this recording is fantastic and reveals why Guy and Wells were considered by many as one of the best duos of modern Chicago blues. Perfect with cocktails and easily the life of the party, this disc smokes, baby! This set also features Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones on bass as well as the legendary PineTop Perkins on piano."
A live masterpiece

"This is certainly one the best live blues performance I have heard. I love the live version of Hoodoo man Blues - it is even better then the original studio classic from 10 years earlier. Checking on my Baby - is as good as this song ever got, even when Sonny Boy Williamson first did it.
Buddy Gut takes over the slower blues, such as "Ten years ago" - as only he can, while Wells is the master of the faster blues. Wells' rough vocals are offset by Guy's smoother delivery, and everything fits beautifully. The harmonica (Wells) and guitar (Guy) solos are all great, and the band sounds united and relaxed at the same time.
This is a CD for ALL those who want to listen to blues, performed live and exciting."
Great Live Blues from one of Blues best dou's

"Live from 1974 Montreaux jazz festival Buddy Guy and Junior Wells play with Pine Top Penkins and Bill Wyman. Sound quality is excellent, set selection is a nice combination of slow and fast tunes and Buddy and Junior do a nice job sharing the lime light. Buddy does a nice job of tone it down for Junior while still providing plenty of heat. Great rap with the crowd as well. If you get a chance to see Buddy live, please make the effort to see one of the last great blues men. This is a great CD for people who love live blues."
