EDITORS’ NOTES

"I was born to play the guitar, people/ I got blues running through my veins," Buddy Guy wails on the title track of his 28th album. He never forgets his juke-joint roots, performing an affecting acoustic ode to Muddy Waters on “Come Back Muddy” and a moving tribute to B.B. King on the ballad “Flesh & Bone” (with Van Morrison). Whether dueting with Joss Stone and string section or trading electric licks with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Guy’s bluesy howl and urgent guitar endure.

Two Words: BUDDY GUY. Enough said

Buddy Guy is pure blues. I listened to the first two tunes released when I pre-ordered this album. Great Blues with much more to come. Buddy is amazing as he continues to deliver the goods. Buy Buddy’s album to listen for a lifetime. Looking forward to his song dedicated to BB King with Van Morrison. God Bless Buddy.

The Great Buddy

Buddy has had a hell of a career. At his age to still be putting out records is tememdous. I always look forward to a new Buddy Guy record. Have seen him twice this year live. He still puts on a great show. Keep it going Buddy.

He was indeed born to play the guitar!

While I don't love the title track, there are so many songs on this album that are really good. Kim Wilson on Kiss Me Quick is incredible. Whiskey Beer and Wine is an upbeat song that you have to be close to flat lining not to enjoy. Crying Out of One Eye slows the pace down a little. On this track you can hear the pain in Buddy's vocals that have been there throughout his career. I could go on but you get the picture. Listen to the deep tracks. The ones that will never see the light of day unless you buy/or listen to the whole album. You are doing yourself a major disfavor if you listen only to the title track and write this album off.
