Junior Wells – Keep On Steppin’: The Best of Junior Wells

Keep On Steppin': The Best of Junior Wells

The recent death of Junior Wells marked the end of an era, leaving behind his legacy and lots of great music. This “best of” CD draws from Wells’ four previous Telarc releases, all of which have been excellent recent outings, dating from 1993 to his live release recorded in 1996; it does not include any of his classic early Four Aces sides, Delmark LPs, or duets with Buddy Guy. But that’s not to put this collection down: these 12 cuts capture Wells playing the blues, belting out R&B, and getting down and soulful with the best.
