Buddy Guy is one of the last bluesmen left from a great era. He is what Jimi Hendrix would have been had Hendrix stuck strictly to the blues. While he may not think he is one of the best, he certainly deserves to be up there with Muddy, Howlin' Wolf, and BB. One reason is because of this album, definitely his best in the past 20 years, and definitely one of his top three. Here, Guy delivers what everyone expects of him: screaming guitar work and powerful, powerful vocals. There is no better blues singer in the business than BG, and as a guitar player his style is uniquely recognizable, and has no equal. The best tracks on this disc: I Smell Trouble (with Double Trouble guesting), Please Don't Drive Me Away, Love Her With A Feeling, Someone Else Is Steppin' In, and Don't Tell Me About The Blues. Those may be the best, but the disc as a whole does not have one weak track on it. I happen to like the clean sound of this album. If you can make it clean and keep the grit, that is awesome. Buddy did it with this album. However, nothing compares to seeing him live. He is one of the best live acts ever! Do yourself a favor: if he's ever in your neck of the woods, be sure to go see him. You won't regret it. LONG LIVE BUDDY GUY AND HIS POLKA DOT STRATOCASTER!

First let me start by saying that Buddy Guy is from a different planet! This can be the only explanation for his six string talent that he displays so well on this gem of a recording. If I had to look for one flaw it would only be that he had switched the order of tracks 1 & 2. How's that for nit-picking? The only reason I say this is because I think "Please Don't Drive Me Away"
may very well be one of his best all-time cuts. The guitar work seems so connected to his vocals that it sounds like interplay that can only come from the soul. This track rocks! The next track,"7-11" goes in the totally opposite direction as a laid back Blues lament that shows Buddy is equally adept at rocking Blues, or slow burners. The oft covered "Shame,Shame,Shame" is probably my least favorite track on the album,with Buddy seemingly going through the motions vocally, but even this grows on you after a while. From there on the album alternates between slow, soulful Buddy treatments and uptempo Blues rockers. Some songs benefit from the rhythm section provided by the somewhat legendary Double Trouble gang. Johnnie Johnson also gets his moments in the sun on the piano. Buddy seems to click with just about everybody he plays with..as usual.. and his guitar has never sounded more powerful, tender and bluesy on one recording.
Other standout tracks include the Lowell Fulson penned "Love Her With A Feeling" where Buddy shows the great interplay of soft, pleading vocals and tender string picking. "Little-Dab-A-Doo" is a humorous original tune about a man's desire to "get a little" and the famous Fred Flintstone call before the final guitar solo is a humorous touch.

What's not to like, Muddy Waters - Folk Singer, Junior Wells - Hoodoo Man, and this solo masterpiece from Buddy "bad" Guy... every track rolls down the line and never jumps or misses a beat, powerful vocals and electrifying guitar licks are the essence here... Buddy's best? if not his most underrated. If you like electric Chicago blues or sixties soul, buy "Slippin' In" today and pick up those low down blues, really, it doesn't get better than this. 1994, excellent audio

How bad was Buddy Guy missed before he came back on the scene with "Damn Right I Got The Blues?" "Too badly to even say" is the answer. His playing on "Slippin' In" ranks as some of the best he's ever recorded.

Guy demonstrates the finesse, skill, flexibility, and raw power possessed by only a very few guitar players. His solos on "Please Don't Drive Me Away" prove that what those who saw him play live even back in the 60's say is true. That Guy plays like a cross between straight blues, jazz guitarist, and heavy metal. His playing on "Please Don't Drive Me Away," "7-11," "Don't Tell Me About The Blues," and "Cities Need Help" is unbelievable at times. The same thoughts cross your mind listening to him as they do when you listen to Hendrix. "How did he do that?" "How can you make that kind of sound with a guitar?"

"Slippin' In" just proves that we've got to grab a hold of Buddy Guy and not let loose of him. He's not allowed any more sabbaticals. We miss out on way too much when he's away.

Buddy Guy...what more needs to be said? This guy just keeps on puting out great music. He does not get old (see his newest album with Aerosmith on one song). These eleven songs will get your Blues up. Enjoy this 1994 effort produced and engineered by Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix). Nuff said.

Along with just about everyone else, I've always enjoyed this recording. I bought it when it first came out in '94, but upon hearing "Trouble Blues" recently, I noticed some static beginning where the vocal part comes in on the first verse. After this, the static seems to disappear, although it just doesn't sound right--almost as if you're listening to the radio and the station isn't quite tuned in. I thought I'd better go find the disc, clean it and re-rip it. But, when I put the disc in my laptop, I heard the same noise. So I thought maybe I should order a new disc, but when I listened to the mp3 sound clip, I heard the same thing. That's when I came to the unthinkable conclusion that it's either a mastering error, or maybe it's meant to be there. I can't imagine the latter, because it doesn't sound right. There is a later pressing from 1997 on Cutting Edge, but it's pricy--$40 and change. I wonder if it was corrected on that one. Trouble Blues seems to be the only track the noise is on, so I'm just guessing that maybe during the recording, some weird machinery was being run and somehow it got through the pickup. This has nothing to do, however, with the music itself, because as stated from other reviews, it's one of Buddy's best albums. I couldn't agree more. From Bobby Bland's "I Smell Trouble" to Denise LaSalles' title track, "Someone Else Is Slippin' In" Buddy's vocals are strong and show no sign of letting up. Throughout, he is supported by a number of ace musicians, not to mention, his playing has never been better, then or now. In recent years he has taken a number of youngsters under his wing, mentoring them and generously given them center stage in a number of his performances.Read more ›
