4.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC TUNES FROM A GUITAR LEGEND! May 3, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Roy Buchanan played a bold and brazen guitar style that went as far as to get him the reputation of "The greatest guitar player you never heard of." I was lucky enough to live in the Maryland suburbs where Roy gigged mainly in the early years, and was one of his "underground" fans whose duty in life, it seemed occasionally, was to turn people on to this music phenom. This was the 1st Roy album I heard and I was enthralled by it. Roy takes "Hey Joe" to places Jimi Hendrix never dreamed. He does a wonderful Lynyrd Skynyrd-like tune called "Home Is Where I Lost Her". Ok, there is a couple throw aways like "Voices", but overall this is an album with greatness in it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the one to buy November 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I am actually a big fan of Roy Buchanan, but I was quite disappointed with this album. He is an astounding guitar player, but his career output is uneven. I have always had this sense of searching for the perfect Roy Buchanan album, and this one is further from it than most.
As always, there are moments on this album when you will shake your head with amazement at his technical brilliance, but the playing is oddly disconnected from the context of the songs. Several of the songs just aren't very good songs. Also, the vocals are problematic. The guest vocalists here are unimpressive to me. Roy himself, of course, could not sing as such, and luckily he rarely pressed himself beyond a kind of spoken delivery. His vocals range from the occasionally touching, to the indifferent (his vocals on this album mostly fit that category), to the awkward, to the cringe-inducing. His guitar is the voice you want to hear.
One must applaud Buchanan's attempts at stylistic range, but some of the musical hats he tried on clearly did not fit. Overall, this album has the feel of putting out a product that was unnatural to him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another classic! March 24, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I got the LP when it came out; I wore it out and someone relieved me of it after that and I realize how much I missed it.
