One of the all-time great urban blues records and the best-seller in the famed Delmark catalog. Hoodoo Man Blues is so full of bravado and snap it'll make you feel tough just listening to it. Not all of the Delmark titles were recorded very well, but this one certainly was. Hoodoo Man Blues, which features Buddy Guy on guitar, is not only Junior Wells' first LP appearance, it's damn near the first LP by a Chicago blues band. Chess and a few other labels had reissued 45s by Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Elmore James, etc., but virtually no one had tried to capture the Chicago blues sound free of the limitations of juke box/airplay promotion. Hoodoo Man Blues went a long way in the popularization of real Chicago blues and of Junior Wells.

I would bet a lot of Bobby Vee's fans never thought that his material was so diverse - even after hearing the great body of work represented by his many LPs. I have been playing this 3-disc set repeatedly and will probably never stop hearing new things each time. His own exceptional writing talent gets a good showcase on this set, and - by the way - one hears a lot more of that in the recordings that have been coming out of his own Rockhouse Productions over the past couple decades.

Kelly’s musical style is a mix of his blues, funk, and disco roots. His guitar solos are multinoted and precise, and though he is quite fast, he still manages to squeeze a great amount of feeling from every note…
