Buddy Guy is arguably the most distinctive, electrifying guitarist in Blues history. On a good night, there is no player in the world who can match him. But for all of Guy’s talent, unfortunately there are few studio recordings that document his genius. Producers have always wanted him either to sound old-fashioned (i.e., the ’50s Chess Chicago Blues sound) or too modern (i.e., some abberation of Jimi or Clapton).
Buddy was only produced properly one time: and the result is this album. After several mediocre albums in the ’60s and ’70s, someone finally let Buddy play in the studio with the creative, reckless abandon that, when playing live, has ignited every building in which he has ever played. This IS Buddy Guy!
