Junior WellsDelmark’s reissue of Southside Blues Jam features 7 new, previously unissued tracks, and a 16-page booklet with liner notes and many never-before-seen photos from Delmark’s Bob Koester. This recording features Junior Wells (vocals, harmonica) with Buddy Guy (guitar), Otis Spann (piano), Louis Myers (guitar), Earnest Johnson (bass) and Fred Belows (drums).

Delmark say’s, “We’ve tried to capture, on this album, what a listener would hear any Monday night at Theresa’s Blues Bar (now defunct) at 48th and Indiana on Chicago’s Southside. The blue Monday regulars, including Buddy Guy, are joined by the late Otis Spann, the greatest blues pianist of his generation, making his last studio appearance and to whom this album is respectfully dedicated by Junior, the musicians, and… the Delmark staff.”

“An incredible slice of Chicago blues — and maybe one of the most important contributions Delmark ever made to the Windy City scene,” says Dustygroove.com

“The quality of the music is so high, it’s almost criminal,” says chicagoblues.com. “The charm of Southside Blues Jam is the back alley, almost free form undercurrent that runs through it.”
