Your Next Junior Wells Purchase
Sondra Snodgrass | Worthington, OH United States | 08/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Most respectable Blues fans own Hoodoo Man Blues, and most Junior fans also have all the tracks he recorded prior to Hoodoo Man. If that's you, then here is your next Junior Wells purchase: It's My Life, Baby. In terms of Junior's highly regarded live albums, the vibe on this live set is far superior to that of Southside Blues Jam. On all the tracks there is great interaction between the band members, and, as usual, Buddy Guy is just killing it. The high point of the album is, without question, "(I Got A) Stomach Ache". I think I fell unconscious the first thirty times I heard it."
Take me back.

"What a time. What a place. What a showman. The late 40's to the late 60's, Chicago's south side, the incomparable Junior Wells... Muddy, Elvis, Wayne Cochrane, Sonny Boy all rolled into one tough little cookie. This album is one sweet treat after another. If you can stay still listening to "Stomach Ache," you are clinically dead. It's a true joy listening to Junior and Buddy Guy but I really envy people in the future; they might be able to transport themselves back to 1964 and see Junior live in Pepper's Lounge."
Junior is in the house spreading the Hoodoo Blues!

"Thanks to the two previous reviewers I checked this cd out and it is burning! Part of it was recorded live at Pepper's Lounge on Chicago's south side and the other at Universal studios in the same city. The live numbers add to the feel and excitement of the cd even though the studio tracks are just as good. This came out a year after the classic "Hoodoo man Blues" cd that established Junior as a Blues Force. A favorite at The Crazy Coyote Blues Power Show 1490 KOTY AM Yakima Nation Reservation Radio in south central Washington state."
