Biography

After decades of paying dues, Buddy Guy has emerged as the most heralded bluesman of his generation, a hugely influential guitarist and passionate, dynamic live performer. But Buddy started as a sideman, and toiled in the Chicago clubs for a decade before beginning his march to worldwide fame.

Buddy began as a sideman in Baton Rouge, playing primarily with the late Raful Neal (father of ... Read more in Amazon's Buddy Guy Store

The title's baloney. Sure, some of Buddy Guy's most blistering guitar playing has been captured on his '90s recordings for Silvertone, but with albums like Muddy Waters's 1964 Folk Singer and his own 1967 solo debut A Man & the Blues on his résumé, Guy's status as a Chicago blues giant was assured long before his 1991 comeback Damn Right, I've Got the Blues. Nonetheless, that tune, the instrumental tribute "Remembering Stevie" (for the late guitar-slinger Vaughan), "Five Long Years," and the previously unissued "Miss Ida B" testify that at age 65 Guy still possesses rare depth and fire. His singing is big and soulful, capable of cheerleading a party or hurtling down to the depths of Delta blues heartache. His six-stringing remains wildly inventive and unpredictable, even on slight numbers like "She's a Superstar." And the inclusion of blatant stabs at the pop charts such as his "Midnight Train" duet with Jonny Lang take nothing away from the passion he puts into true blues performances like "I Need Your Love So Bad" and "Innocent Man," leftovers from earlier sessions that surface here. Baddest or not, this CD spotlights one of our greatest bluesmen in fine form. --Ted Drozdowski

Customer Reviews

I love blues music and he is one of the best.
liz
This CD is a testament to one of the all-time greatest electric blues guitar performers... Mr. Buddy Guy.
Rick Shaq Goldstein
He has several other great albums out there, but I think this compilation album is very good.

To the fan from Vienna, VA: Buddy is not in his 70's. Actually, as of the date I'm writing this, he is 63. Regardless, no one I've ever seen packs as much energy into a live performance as Mr. Guy. And I recommend to anyone who hasn't seen him live, do it before it's too late. He truly is the master!!
Anyway, about this CD. It is a compilation of some of best tracks off his Silvertone recordings of the 90's, plus 5 previously unreleased tracks. Definitely for the more casual fan, who doesn't own "Damn Right I've Got the Blues", "Feels Like Rain", "Slippin' In"(the best of the individual studio Silvertone recordings), and "Heavy Love". Also with the Silvertone label, Buddy released a live album w/the Saturday Live Band called "The Real Deal". The only track on "Buddy's Baddest" from "The Real Deal" is "Let Me Love You". "The Real Deal" is definitely worth buying separate because live is how Mr. Guy is meant to be heard.
Overall, I would say "Buddy's Baddest" is a good introduction to Buddy Guy. If you love it, then follow up with "The Real Deal", the individual Silvertone recordings, "Stone Crazy", and "DJ Play My Blues". Also, you can't go wrong with "Live at Montreaux" or "Drinking TNT and Smoking Dynamite"(better), both live recordings with harmonica legend Jr. Wells.....Enjoy!

This overview of Buddy Guy's Silvertone recordings ought to be titled "Some of the best of Buddy Guy's 90s material, and a few throwaways as well", or something along those lines.

The first ten songs are almost all good, but the four previously unreleased songs aren't among Guy's best work, and since almost all of the previously released material here is taken from just three albums, there is really no good reason to pick up this mediocre sampler. Go with "Damn Right I've Got The Blues" and "Slippin' In" instead, and perhaps the "Feels Like Rain" album, from which "She's Nineteen Years Old" and of course "Feels Like Rain" are taken.
Only one track comes from the forgettable "Heavy Love", which is actually a credit to the compilers, and the last one, the live "My Time After Awhile", is from "Live: The Real Deal".

If you want an overview of Buddy Guy's career prior to his 90s comeback, go for Rhino Records' excellent "The Very Best Of Buddy Guy", or check out the best of his classic Chess singles on MCA/Chess' "Buddy's Blues". This is a decent sampler, but considering that it only spans four studio albums, one of which is bland at best, it is not really that much of a necessity.

Buddy is the best live blues concert i've ever experienced. In his 70's, but still packed with energy, Buddy's live performances on this album are better than the studio recordings on the record are. Highlights include "Midnight Train" with Johnny Lang and the live version of "While You Were Slippin' Out." In short, you must buy this album as a fan, but you must also see him perform to understand the full energy of his sound on a record.

For anyone who's a Buddy Guy fan, this is what we've been waiting for! Buddy shreds like no one else can and heavily influences my playing style. All tracks are enjoyable. My favorite being "Sally" and "Feels Like Rain". Too bad "Mary had a Little Lamb" wasn't included. Buddy's interpretation of "Five Long Years" wails better than Clapton's "From the Cradle" version. Enjoy the music!

This album will show you a man that is blues, blues and nothing but blues! Blues comes out his feet, his fingers, from every vain the man has in his whole body! This album is a good way to start if you want to dive into Buddy Guys world of the blues and blues as a whole. Guy combines various blues styles to one, very much his own style. That makes him a true living legend, and I am sure that if you buy this album you're soon will buy the original ones as well!

This is the most incredible blues CD I have ever come across. I grew up on BB King staples and what I was fed from the "Blues Brothers" along with Stevie Ray regulars. But when I slapped on this CD and heard the first licks (Stevie Ray's learning ground as you can obviously tell from first listen) and then Buddy Guy's voice, it was cosmic meeting of genres. By the time I was done with the CD I was convinced Buddy Guy solely was the father of Rock and Roll. His aggressive blues and no care for how long he played a solo during a song just speaks freedom as his riffs blended in with the songs so you didn't care if they went 5 minutes (and sometimes they do). And as I learned more about Buddy and the influence he had on guys like Stevie Ray, Gibbons (ZZ Top), Eric Clapton and even Led Zepplin it all started to fit. This guy was the true king of Blues Rock. And to think he's been playing this music for some 50 years now. Simply amazing. If you only buy one Blues CD (and you should buy more) this is the one. It will rock your world like it did mine and you will be forever changed and become a convert to the house that Buddy Guy built.
