Recorded May 15, 1981 at Sysmo Studios in Paris, France.

Originally issued in France on Isabel Records 900.510 under the title 'Going Back' this LP presents one of the best duos in the history of the blues, guitarist Buddy Guy and harmonica player Junior Wells. Over the years they made many recordings together but this one is unique. Recorded whilst on a 1981 tour of Europe, Guy and Wells took a break from their backing musicians and amps to cut this spontaneous, all acoustic set. 

The results stand in start contrast to the steamy Chicago blues the duo is best known for. Instead these recordings are relaxed and personal, with an intimate, back porch feel. Guy switches between six and twelve string gjuitars, and lays down rootsy acoustic rhythms for Well's tasteful harmonical lines. The two share vocal duties on the performances as they pay home to the real country blues roots these modern bluesmen share.

This Pure Pleasure LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed with virgin vinyl at Pallas.
