For someone on a budget who is interested in the music of this legendary artist, look no further than this single disc album. The sound and track selection here are excellent. Anyone interested in the blues needs to have at least one Buddy Guy album in their collection and you can't go wrong here. Another option is Rhino's "Very Best Of Buddy Guy" which features 18 tracks compared to the 15 presented here (personally I give a very slight nod to the Rhino cd based on track slection & overall sound). This release however may be a better choice for those with only a few bucks to spend. But, for those of you who do have a few extra dollars around, I strongly suggest passing on both single disc releases and opt for the 2 disc set "The Complete Chess Studio Sessions" on the MCA/Chess label. "The Complete" boasts 47 tracks an is more comprehensive than this release. It may be out-of-print, but can be found for sale in zShops or eBay at a very reasonable price.

Every track on this compilation is strong, no doubt about it. I like much of Buddy's later work but I keep returning to the sides he recorded for Chess in the 60s. Fortunately, the sound quality is excellent for that era and doesn't get in the way at all. There is great variety in this set and I have difficulty picking favorites but these tunes do make it easy to see why so many musicians have been influenced by Buddy. It's obvious to see that young Buddy was more than capable of leading a band. Typical of Chess Records, the CD booklet has a great historical perspective and complete song info. what a band Buddy had together back in the 60's! Lafayette Leake, Little Brother Montgomery, Leonard Caston and Otis Spann alternated on piano, Jack Meyers and Phil Upchurch on bass, Fred Below, Al Duncan, Phil Thomas and Clifton James on drums plus a host of other talented players. Enjoy the newer mucis Buddy has made but don't forget his first golden era. Great stuff.

Buddy Guy is one of my all-time favorite bluesmen....and this is the album which started it all for me.

Listen to these songs and be changed. The album starts out with "Worried Mind", a relaxing blues tune, which shows the mellow side of Buddy Guy. Relax while you can, for some fiery vocals are not too far off! When Buddy sings "She Suits Me To A Tee" I honestly wonder at what point his vocal chords will snap. And when Buddy sings "I Cry And Sing The Blues" you are convinced that in fact he is crying and singing the blues. Listen to this album just once to hear one of the greatest bluesmen in history and no doubt you will be won over just as I was to Buddy Guy's music.

5 stars....a fantastic single disc compilation at a very inexpensive price. A must own for any blues fan.

I believe there is a 2-CD set out there of his Chess recordings, but do not think it is still available, except to buy it used.

Wow!!! For just under eight bucks this CD is a steal! These are all tracks taken from his classic Chess Records period and they all smoke! When listening to a song like "Leave My Girl Alone" you can hear how he must have influenced the likes of Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin with the high notes he hits with such conviction and intensity. And that's talking vocals. Most people talk about his influence on the Guitar greats and that's all very true, but I'm sure he had an influence on singers too given what a great singer he was/is. What a performer! "My Time After Awhile" is another highlight with more strong vocals and smooth guitar work. "Worried Mind" was a surprise because I hadn't heard it before. Great song with Buddy's usual great guitar playing. At this point in time I'd have to say he's not only one of my all time favorite Blues guys but one of my all time favorite performers period. You gotta love Buddy!!!

This is a great collection of Buddy Guy's Chicago recordings, & they really hit the spot. The guitar playing is wonderful, but not as wild as it should have been due to views of taste from the time!

This is still a superb CD and well worth getting.

BUDDY GUY-BUDDY'S BLUES: Long before morphing into a blooze-rockin' superstar who jammed with the likes of ERIC CLAPTON and other guitar gurus that knelt at his alter, BUDDY GUY paid his proverbial dues at CHESS RECORDS, whose roster boasted pioneering legends MUDDY WATERS (his mentor), HOWLIN' WOLF, and SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON. One of many superb entries in MCA's CHESS RECORDS 50TH ANNIVERSARY series, BUDDY'S BLUES tracks fifteen signature slices of gritty groove-ology like the laid back smokers WHEN MY LEFT EYE JUMPS, FIRST TIME I MET THE BLUES, and MY TIME AFTER A WHILE. GUY, who played behind nearly everyone at CHESS during his tenure there, also cultivated a fiesty uptempo side, amply spotlighted via PRETTY BABY, SHE SUITS ME TO A TEE and LET ME LOVE YOU BABY, hot steppin' fuzz-tone workouts brimming with sweat-soaked enthusiasm and intense passion that are forebearers of his scorching DAMN RIGHT I'VE GOT THE BLUES sound of the 90s. As expressive and intriguing a belter as he was a sizzling six stringer, this is the collection where any Chicago Blues fan should start soaking up the raw soul shakin' vibe of that genre's undisputed godfather, BUDDY GUY.

RATING: FIVE POLKA DOTS
