Russell Simins – Tracks From The Van #32

32. Junior Wells – (I’ve Got A) Stomach Ache

“A definite standout track from the Vanguard recordings that followed Harp master Wells’ 2 classic Delmark releases, Hoodoo Man Blues and Southside Jam.

The great Buddy Guy brilliantly accompanied Wells on both the Delmark recordings and came with him when he moved to Vanguard. And as usual Guy’s unique adventurous guitar style couldn’t be more evident than on this track with his furiously cool picking and way out leads perfectly complimenting Wells’s wildly manic vocals highlighted by his playfully expressive oooches, ahhhs, mmms and ows. With the one and only Fred Below’s energetic driving beat and colorful minimal fills adding to all the soulful intensity of this very funky track. – R.S.”
