Junior Wells: You're Tuff Enough

Album Notes

Personnel includes: Junior Wells (vocals, harmonica).

Includes liner notes by Bill Dahl.

Another period of the veteran Chicago harpman's career, and one of the most exciting. Wells' late-'60s output for Bright Star and Mercury's Blue Rock subsidiary frequently found him mining funky James Brown grooves (with a bluesy base, of course) to great effect. "Up in Heah" and his national smash "You're Tuff Enough" are marvelous examples of his refusal to bend to purists' wishes (though there's a glorious version of Bobby Bland's blues-soaked "You're the One" that benefits handily from Sammy Lawhorn's delicate guitar work). ~ Bill Dahl
