JUNIOR WELLS - SHAKE IT BABY! b/w (I GOT A) STOMACH ACHE
Here's another one of those mid-60s Chicago blues numbers that cooks so hard it FRIES! Both sides of this one are perfect after midinght jams...Shake It Baby! is great for right around 12:30 when everybody is nice and buzzed and ready to dance relentlessly, and Stomach Ache is perfect for about 1 AM when it's starting to chill out a bit but nobody's ready to quit. Junior's intro 'OOH Ouch" chant is so bad ass I can't even put it in to words.
Plus, Buddy Guy's guitar work on Shake It Baby is simply out of this world.
