Reviews: Junior Wells: Come On In This House

Reviews: 7

Review by FredCamp July 24, 2003 (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
First of all, this is a great blues recording. Junior Wells is a master, and he never sounded better that he does here. The guest musicians accompany Juniour without trying to overshadow him.

Secondly, I love the multi-channel mix on this sacd. One of the best I've heard.

Performance:   Sonics:
This disc sounds great.

As far as the performances go, Wells and his producer assembled a strong collection of songs from Sonny Boy Williamson, Junior Wells, Little Walter, Tampa Red and--get this--Tracy Chapman. Recorded in 1996, two years before his death, the 62 year old Wells' singing and blowing are in great form. To top that off, he is paired with several different slide guitar experts, including Sonny Landreth (sometime guitarist for John Hiatt's band), wunderkind Derek Trucks (son of the late Allman Brother Butch Trucks), Alvin "Youngblood" Hart and Corey Harris. If you like Chicago-style blues, you're going to love this CD.

Now, the sound. Pristine. Crystal clear. Great in 5.1 and in stereo. Everything you'd ever want--and expect--from SACD. The folks at Telarc did a great job here.

Get down and boogie! Love the honesty and fun of this blues album. The sound is great - very alive sounding and you don't have to breathe a lot of smokey air and smell the stale beer to enjoy it.

The sound of this SACD is sure to please. The clarity, sonics and feel of the music is moving. You will be hard pressed to hear Juinor Wells in any better setting unless he ever played live in your living room. The multi channel mix is superb and quite exilerating to listen to. A must have SACD for those who love Juinor Wells and blues in general.

Performance:   Sonics:    
This SACD has it all.
One of the greats of blues accompanied by some very good players.
Excellent choice of songs.
A (relatively) new, top-notch master recording with amazingly warm and natural sound.
Probably one of the best multi-channel sounds ever produced.
If you would like to invite Junior Wells and his friend in your living room for a private performance, just buy this SACD.

Performance:   Sonics:  
I agree with all the very positive reviews I read here. Junior Well is certainly one of the greats of blues and this disc puts his right in the room with you. I was astounded by the lineup of whos whos of blues who contributed. The sonics are right up there with the best and I have played it many times over and will continue to do so. Its so interesting, its simply a must have for any blues fans.
