Four Chicago harmonica greats, one eminently solid album. Teamed with Junior Wells, Billy Branch, and Carey Bell, Cotton sings Willie Love's Delta classic "Little Car Blues" and Charles Brown's "Black Night." Wells trades harp solos and vocals, standing front and center on a fine rendition of Sonny Boy II's "Keep Your Hands Out of My Pockets" and the tailor-made "Somebody Changed the Lock" and "Broke and Hungry," obviously relishing the camaraderie between himself and his fellow harmonica giants.

Big Walter Horton was one of the key architects of modern blues harmonica. Blues legend Willie Dixon referred to him as "the best harmonica player I ever heard." Along with Little Walter Jacobs and Sonny Boy Williamson II, he is considered to be one of the most influential harpists ever. He was capable of both intense power and fragile delicacy, often in the same song. He was endlessly melodically adventurous, and always unpredictable. His only Alligator Records album, - "Big Walter Horton With Carey Bell", came out in 1972. It paired him with his young protégé, who had played under Walter's tutelage since Bell's arrival in Chicago. Walter's long-time partner Eddie Taylor joined them on guitar. It was Alligator's second-ever release, and received widespread critical acclaim, especially for the fiery harp duets that pitted the two harmonica masters against one another…

Wells arrived from Memphis fully formed but possessing a rawness that he would always maintain at the age of 18 as an energetic blues harp wizard and a vocalist with an intense and expressive borderline R&B style, schooled back in Memphis by his cousin, Little Junior "Mystery Train" Parker. It would be hard to name another 18-year-old in his rookie year of recording who ever put out a double-sided single as strong and as iconic as Wells's second one: "Hoodoo Man" (originally by Sonny Boy Williamson #1), which became one of his signature numbers, b/w his own original instrumental, "Junior's Wail," the title song of this collection. (Be careful when listening to the latter, as your jaw may hit the floor around the 0:54 mark.)

It's a mite ragged around the edges, but Bell's 1969 debut session certainly sports the proper ambience – and no wonder, with guitarists Eddie Taylor and Jimmy Dawkins and pianist Pinetop Perkins on hand to help out. No less than four Little Walter covers and two more from Muddy Waters' songbook dot the set, but many of the best moments occur on the original numbers. Delmark's CD reissue includes three previously unissued items. ~Allmusic
