The arrival of Buddy Guy-Junior Wells band in Paris in September 1970 gave him a chance to work again with a 'hot' guitarist, an amplified- harmonica player. A sax-section and a tight rhythm background. Sharing vocals with Guy, rolling the keys of piano, he hollered the Blues with enthusiasm and real feeling. Much of the credit for this surprising release must go to producer Phillipe Rault and to the sidemen who provided the right blues workout: mention must be made of saxmen Jim Conley and AC Reed - the former has been a familiar figure on Chicago's Southside for years, while the latter is known for his fine work with the late Earl Hooker. What you hear is Memphis Slim but what you get is pure Chicago Blues - the Sound of the South, Fifties' style. Slim hadn't done anything quite like this and never did it again, and we're glad he took US back to the good old days just this once.
