5.0 out of 5 stars finally.... buddy gets the recognition he deserves!, July 10, 2002
This review is from: Damn Right, I've Got the Blues (Audio CD)
to a casual blues fan, buddy was living in relative obscurity till he released this cd in 1991. hardcore blues fans like myself already knew how great a singer/guitarist he was since he came on the scene back in the late 50's. then he came crashing thru with this cd! no longer would buddy guy be the best kept secret in the blues genre. his famous wild string bends are on display at the start of the cd on the title track, and throughout. his guitar playing on "too broke to spend the night" is incredible, showcasing blazing speed. his string bending technique is in full effect on "rememberin stevie", his tribute to the late stevie ray vaughan. the song starts slow and winds up gradually. just a beautiful instrumental track. other highlights include eddie boyd's often covered "five long years" and willie dixon's popular "let me love you baby". stevie ray also covered this song on his last cd before he died. i also enjoyed jeff beck's guitar work on "mustang sally". buddy's singing and playing are top-notch on this cd. no filler here. this cd started a run of successful work thru the 90's with silvertone records. it's amazing what he has accomplished here in his later years. thanks buddy for giving us all this great music to listen to. god bless!
