Harp player Junior Wells and guitarist Buddy Guy first worked together on Junior’s 1965 album Hoodoo Man Blues and they played together on and off until Junior’s death in 1998. In the mid-’70’s they played regularly in a band that also included Buddy’s brother Phil on guitar and A. C. Reed (Jimmy Reed’s brother) on saxophone. Some friends of mine and I went see them at a club named Ratso’s and spent way too much money, and never regretted a penny of it. Here Junior pays tribute to one of his teachers, Sonny Boy Williamson II (aka Alex “Rice” Miller). During this period, Buddy took a break from his Stratocaster and was playing a Guild 335 lookalike.
