On his new album, Buddy Guy looks to the same source for inspiration; seven of the nine songs here are written by Fat Possum's hill-country blues roster, including T-Model Ford and Junior Kimbrough. Working with producer Dennis Herring (Counting Crows, Jars of Clay) and a small collective of Mississippi-based musicians, Guy sings with a passion that can only come from the same source as the songs. The noise generated in the studio through vintage amplifiers has a live and dangerous feel to it. The acoustic opener, "Done Got Old," does not prepare the listener for the colossal aural assault of "Baby, Please Don't Leave Me." Fading in on a percussion track, Guy's guitar hits its cat-strangling best and never looks back, while the voice sounds energized, vital, and wholly contemporary. Through the 12-minute "I Got to Try It, Girl" to the closing Guy composition "It's a Jungle Out There," Sweet Tea has all the hallmarks of a classic blues album, mixed with a twist of the new. --Rob Stewart
If you close your eyes you can imagine being in a theater listening to Mr. Guy in the flesh.
In any genre of music people generally dislike change, they like to pidgeon-hole artists into a mold of comfort and routine.
Wait till you hear "Baby Please Don't Leave Me" and "I Gotta Try You Girl"....this one will blow you away.
The person I brought the CD for was "over the moon" with excitement. He has a number of Buddy Guy CDs and from your list found you have a lot of CDs he doesn't have. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Robyn G. Knorr

This is Buddy at his best. Most tracks feature the type of screaming guitar riffs that made Hendrix such a fan (and to an extent imitator). Read morePublished 9 months ago by Idle Vinyl

Buddy Guy meets the North Mississippi AllStars!
If you like either of those, you will enjoy this. A different side of Buddy that I didn't know he had in him.
This is simply a great blues album. It starts off with an acoustic song, "Done Got Old," then cranks it up with the electric "Baby Please Don't Leave. Read morePublished 14 months ago by David S. Markowitz
