Can't disagree..the distortion on Blue Light towards the end is immense and it sounds like three people all at once. Juke was the first Little Walter I heard on one of those NME tapes in the early eighties and it still gives me goosebumps.

This Big Walter tune is immense

Sometimes you just dont need the words do you? I think Rush have done the instrumental justice....YYZ/La villa Strangiato? and my personal enduring favourite instrumental of all time Mr.Reg Wale with 'Fruity flutes....Some of you may may remember this delightful little tune as the theme for 'farmhouse kitchen' A cooking programme from the '70s..Magic stuff.
