Junior Wells Story

"If you're a Junior Wells fan, this comes recommended. The picture and sound quality is not great. Some of the jam performances featured on the DVD are also nothing to croon about. Nonetheless, the history of Junior Wells both as a bluesman and as a rags-to-riches story features very prominently. The story of how he supposedly stole a mouth harmonica and 'harped' his way out of the judge's courtroom, his brush-ins with Sonny Boy Williamson II, his value for diversity and love for others who were non-black, the origins of the song 'Messing with the Kid' and his own struggles to bring up his child, all feature is this dvd."

"This DVD had some great history. IF your looking for info on how it all started and where it took place. this is the one.
I would look forward to a DVD just had him doing live songs.

"This is well worth the money, it is as good as I hoped it would be. Lots of great interviews with other blues great's. Including Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Luther Allison an many others. Plus lots of good live performances, also some great live footage of him and Buddy at Legends. This is a well produced and well balanced documentary, try this and enjoy."
Get it if you don't have it!

"A much needed documentary on an absolute blues legend. Great interviews, very good sound. Would as always benefit from more performance footage but that being said there is some excellent footage of Junior and amusing footage of Bruce Willis thinking he's 'with' the band! It's Junior Wells! 'nuff said."
