This review is about the vinyl version. The music -- absolutely fabulous, raw real blues played acoustically. The album pressing? Horrible -- lots of background static and "pops". I mean a lot! Had to return for a refund since I''ve read in other reviews that other people had the same problem with the vinyl release and I had no confidence that a replacement would be any better. It''s a shame because it''s such a great blues release. I can only hope that someday another label will release a good pressing of this album.

Buddy Guy and Junior Wells do not quite replicate the magic of Hoodoo Man Blues, but Wow, they come as close as could be expected nearly 20 years after the release of that marvelous and inimitable 1965 album. What we are treated to on this album are the songs which are in the annals of blues history as the tried and true blues greats. From "Boogie Chillin''" to "My Home is in the Delta", we get an experience of the blues as (in my opinion) they are meant to be, pure and acoustic. And listen closely to the lyrics of "My Home is in the Delta".....the lyrics are vastly different from those of the same song Muddy Waters sang decades ago. These two take blues classics and reshape them to fit their own style, instead of simply making a retread of a famous song.

One of the "must have" albums in the modern blues genre.

The magical synergy of Junior Wells and Buddy Guy was apparent in "Hoodoo Man Blues", recorded before Buddy Guy was well known. Junior Wells'' subsequent solo works, while workmanlike, have never achieved the same pinnacle (e.g., Come On Into This House). With this joint effort, that synergy is back.

It is very interesting to see (hear) the pair together 30 years after that first work together. The undefinable synergy is still there - Is it the way Buddy sets up a background for Junior''s vocals or harmonica? Or is it the way that Junior defers to Buddys guitar? However, with age, the two interact more sensitively and with a polish - No, a burnished patina - that makes this work a mellower version of their earlier work together. Both performers are secure in their careers and accomplishments and this results in a very special and mature interaction between them.

From the folk blues of Big Boat to the John Lee Hooker homage in Boogie Chillen, the pairing in "Alone and Acoustic" is seamless - You can almost see one person playing the guitar and harmonica while singing.

Caution: As the title suggests, this is not the Buddy Guy that Jimi Hendrix studied. For those of us who grew up with the Eric Clapton of John Mayall (also Cream, Blind Faith) Canned Heat, and Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac as our introduction to the blues (along with Hendrix''s ''Red House'') in the late 60''s, this could be a disappointment. But to me the CD is not. It is a great pleasure, with the lack of other instruments a sort of relief. No, for those of us of that era, this is more like the ''Hot Tuna'' record (remember records?) after lots of electric music from Jefferson Airplane, Led Zepplin, Cream, Iron Butterfly, etc... clean and unpretentious.

And in ''Big Boat'' we hear something like one of my favorites from Hoodoo Man, Buddy''s sharp "Ow!" during Junior''s first harmonica solo in ''Early in the Morning''. And Buddy sings on this one, too! (Hoodoo Man is one of the classic blues albums - Do yourself a favor and get it if you don''t have it!)

A wonderful CD to just listen to and enjoy.

Buddy Guy and Junior Wells have long been icons on the Chicago Blues scene. With this album they take their roots in Delta Blues and portray them in an acoustical venue. Guy''s guitar mastery is shown in this album using both a 12 string as well as 6 string guitar. The sound of Junior Wells'' harmonica provides an accompaniment that should be considered a benchmark for any true blues lover.

If this were merely an instrumental recording, it would be well worth it, but it comes with the vocals of both Buddy Guy and Junior Wells which give one the feel of the true soul stirring blues that has made this style of music popular for so long. This is a recording that is to be listened to and cherished over a long period of time.

This is a fantastic album and the music is just a MUST HAVE. I bought vinyl (the sound quality is great), but the pressing quality is just dismal. I thought I had a bad pressing and returned it (Amazon.com is just amazing). I had a new copy within 2 days and that is just as bad. I''ve even cleaned both copies on my VPI 16.5 record cleaning machine to no avail. Very subtle improvement, but the pressing is plain noisy, no fill areas and a pathetic way to present such a good album. I was so excited to hear it all analog and it just disappointed me. I am in two minds about returning my second vinyl copy as well and stick with the CD.

Should have used RTI for the pressing and should have had Kevin Gray master it...

If you''re going to go through the trouble of putting a release on vinyl, do it properly or don''t do it at all. Simple as that.

I loved this CD from the very first notes played by Buddy on the first track ''Give me my coat and Shoes''.They took turns in singing and Wells'' harmonica and Guy''s guitar sound fantastic throughout this album.A couple of John Lee Hooker songs in the shape of ''I''m in the mood'' and ''Boogie Chillen'' but for me the last track medley of ''Baby what do you want me to do/That''s allright'' is just world class! Buddy started off by singing like Jimmy Reed but soon ''found'' his own voice again. Fantastic music from two guys who enjoy being together and who simply love their music. And it shows here!

Ich habe diese Aufnahme bereits seit Jahrzehnten auf CD und denke, dass es sich um ein tolles Zeitdokument mit einer brillianten Aufnahmequalität handelt. Die Schallplatte hingegen ist leider ein Reinfall. Die Alligator-Pressung ist ab Werk miserabel und voller sicht- und hörbarer Schleifspuren und Kratzer. Zuerst dachte ich, dass es sich um einen Einzelfall handelt, aber ich habe inzwischen drei dieser Schallplatten zu Hause, und alle weisen genau dieselben Fehler auf.

Splendida incisione acustica di questo duo indimenticabile con una sensazione di forte meraviglia per l''effetto "presenza" che un buon sistema stereo riesce a trasmetterti. In certi momenti ci si dimentica di essere nel salotto di casa e se chiudi gli occhi percepisci quasi l''atmosfera unica e intensa di toccare con mani le persone e gli strumenti che ti stanno davanti. Fortemente consigliato per chi ama il genere e per chi voglia mettere in discussione il proprio impianto o meravigliare in una session i propri amici.
