  • So Funky You Can Smell It

    This man just continues to leave me awestruck. It was the late 80's, college, when I first met the Blues by way of Jimi's Red House. I was hooked and craved more of it. I picked up Jimi's Blues album and read everything I could about his influences. I was at Secret Sounds and grabbed a Jimi tribute album with numerous artists but what stood out was Buddy's cover of Red House. I haven't stopped listening to him or going to see him since. The guitar is just simply an expansion of his soul and you hear it again on this album. My all time favorite of his is "One Room Country Little Shack" it just stirs my soul, his playing on these tracks will stir you too.
  • Great Blues

    The first time I heard Buddy Guy I got lost in the blues. He plays and sings with so much soul, he puts his life into everything he does. Of course the only thing left to do was to see him live. That I did, in Louisville KY. Together with BB King. Life is complete now. I will never listen to any other kind of music and learn to play the blues. Thank You Buddy
  • A great Guitarist

    I first saw Buddy in 1970 at a little place on the East Side of Buffalo NY. The bar belonged to Jesse James Peterson, Lucky Petersons dad. Buddy knocked the doors off the place and made me a life long fan. Forty two years later he still plays like he did then. He hasn't made a bad record in all the years he's been playing. He's played with all the greats, Muddy, Wolf, Big Mamma Thorton, Junior Wells, Clapton, and Stevie Ray, to name just a few.I have seen him play every time he's performed in Western New York since that night I first saw him and every show was like the first. It never gets old and he don't seem to either. I met him one afternoon in Legends when I was in Chicago and spent a little time talking to him and he was a real gentlemen who took sometime out of his day to talk to an old fan. He truly is a national treasure and the greatest blues artist that ever lived.
  • The Greatest Blues Guitar Alive

    With my most humble apologies to BB and Eric, Buddy is the greatest blues guitar player alive and although I have had the honor and pleasure to see him perform on a number of occasions, I always leave thinking it went by way to fast and wondering how many more opportunities I will have to experience that magic. This album is fabulous for anyone of any age who loves the blues and this particular piece of genius is a must!

    Are the blues supposed to make you smile? Try listening to this without grinning from ear to ear! True, heartfelt craftsmanship. This album oozes quality from beginning to end. Spread the word about this 74 year old legend that is still growing and rocking the blues!
  • I hope Buddy lives forever

    Getting caught up in today's simple music, I catch myself thinking...well this is it I guess, how can musicians make it sound any better?... Then I find myself second row watching and hearing Buddy play some of these songs- wow. He will put chills down your spine he is so great. Unparalleled stage presence too. I'm already worried that no one will ever come close after he goes and younger generations will never experience very real, raw talent that is nothing short of amazing.
  • Great Album

    This is the first full album I have purchased on iTunes. This is probably the best new Blues album released in years. If you like the Blues you owe it to yourself to give it a listen.
