Today's New Re-Release: 'Southside Blues Jam' - Junior Wells

Today, the classic 1970 album Southside Blues Jam by Junior Wells will be re-released with an expanded tracklist. I wrote a previous post about a song on that album which you can read [here].

The excerpt about this release from Delmark Records: 

The follow up to Hoodoo Man Blues (DMK 612), this classic Chicago blues album is now re-issued in an expanded digipak Deluxe Edition containing unissued performances and a 16-page booklet with many never-before-seen photos. The Godfather of Blues, Junior Wells is accompanied by Buddy Guy and Louis Myers, guitar; Otis Spann, piano; Earnest Johnson, bass; Fred below, drums. Recorded December 30, 1969 and January 8, 1970, the five extra performances include Rock Me Baby, an alternate take of I Could Have Had Religion, Junior's In Charge, an eight-minute improvisational studio jam with lots of Otis Spann, and more, 73 minutes. With new notes by producer Bob Koester. A must for blues lovers.

And indeed it is a must!

Here's another track from the album, 'Stop Breaking Down':
