Come On In This House

by Junior Wells

(1996) Telarc #83395

Personnel Junior Wells, v/h, with guest slide guitarists Corey Harris, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Sonny Landreth, Bob Margolin, John Mooney, Derek Trucks
Description Junior's last album (I think) is a fitting end to a seminal career, with 70 minutes of excellent blues action featuring a litany of guest slide-guitar superstars.

This is one of my favorite recent blues albums. The beggining of the first song is one of the best blues album intros that I've ever heard. Most importantly, this album just happens to have a lot of really good tunes on it.

Aside from the fact that Junior Wells rocks on vocals and harp, he's accompanied by a selection of mostly up-and-coming slide guitarists, ranging from the slashing electric slide of Derek Trucks to the elegant National Steel punctuation of Corey Harris and Alvin "Youngblood" Hart. This album therefore also acts as a nice little sampler of what's out there in the world of blues slide.
