Magic Sam's career may have been far too short (he released this and the almost-equally-excellent "Black Magic" before dying of a heart attack at the age of 32), but he at least died untouched by mediocrity. And he lives up to his name; his guitar is as spellbinding as Merlin's wand. Quick picks, long lazy notes, subdued background segments, and beautiful guitar solos: Magic Sam summons them all from his instrument with the effortless ease of a sorcerer.
And his voice--Oh, what a voice! There's a moment on "I Need You So Bad" that may well be my favorite moment of human vocal performance in the whole history of recorded music. It's one of those nearly inarticulate wails, an "Oh, baby" that captures a life's worth of emotion in the space of a few short seconds. You just can't top it, folks.
And yet, I'm not sure that that's the best song on the album. His "Sweet Home Chicago" may well be the definitive rendition of that classic blues staple. And "My Love Will Never Die" is a scorcher, a wonderful slow-cooker full of simmering blues gumbo that has it all: smoky guitar work, fiery declarations of undying and unrequited love, and that certain spicy je ne sais quois that makes a song inexplicably greater than the sum of its parts.
Chicagoans (like myself) are required by city ordinance to like the blues. I'm no expert, but I've listened to my share of it, and I've found some great anthologies and some excellent albums--Junior Wells' "Hoodoo Man Blues", B.B. King's "Live at Cook County Jail" and Buddy Guy's "Sweet Tea", to name but a few. Still I haven't found a better blues album than this one. Magic Sam, my love will never die.
"I Don't Want No Woman" is easily comparable to any of the great hits put out by the Beatles, The Rolling Stones....and the many other famous groups of the time. For some reason or other, the Blues get little to no recognition from the public at large, and this has always been a mystery to me since I discovered the Blues myself only a few short years ago. For fans of the Blues, I guess this is a good thing, since we have a treasure which few people know of......and Magic Sam's "West Side Soul" truly is a treasure.
His version of "Sweet Home Chicago" is probably the best version of the famous Robert Johnson song, only to be outdone by Johnson's original.
"Lookin' Good" is an amazing instrumental piece, and if you are like me, you will wear the replay button out on this song. And there are song's on this in which I wonder how his vocal chords hold up to the stress; namely "I Feel So Good (I Wanna Boogie)" among them. He would have been a truly entertaining figure to see perform live. "My love Will Never Die" is one of the more haunting pieces, one which shows his fantastic voice on display.
When I first heard this album, I was not overly impressed with it, as it did not seem to define the blues for me. However, the more I listened to it, the more it became an integral part of my Blues collection, one that I will indeed forever treasure. This album taught me that the Blues are not monolithic in any sense of the word; rather, they are composed of many different pieces and sub-genres. West Side Soul is probably the best example of Chicago Blues west side sound.
A must have for any lover of the Blues.
Long live Magic Sam!
