Two Blues Masters On 180g Audiophile Vinyl LP!

The majority of the southern-style, Rhythm & Blues album Play The Blues by Buddy Guy & Junior Wells was recorded in the Miami Criteria Studios in the second half of 1970. Nevertheless, Guy was not able to leave Chicago out of this album with tracks such as "Bad Bad Whiskey" and "My Baby She Left Me". Guest musicians include Eric Clapton, A.C. Reed, Dr. John and The J. Geils Band.

These are probably the best recordings Guy & Wells ever made, sounding clean and smooth. An excellent blues album from two masters in blues!
