Format:Audio CD
Buddy Guy made some great recordings during the 60s and early 70s, followed by something of a lean spell in the 80s; then in 1991 he signed for "Silvertone" and has put out a string of absolutely CRACKING albums since.
"Feels Like Rain" was recorded in 93, when Buddy was a mere 57 yrs. old and contains nine covers and two original songs. Guest musicians include Bonnie Raitt, Paul Rodgers, John Mayall,and Travis Tritt, but their presence never overshadows the great man.
This album is an example of Buddy at his best; one of the small elite of blues musicians who excel at both guitar playing and singing.
"Country Man" is one of the tracks written by Buddy, and it absolutely personifies his aggressive, scorching brand of guitar playing, while the delicate double-stop intro. to " Feels Like Rain" is worth the cost of the album in its own right.The slide playing and vocals of Bonnie Raitt on this track are also a total joy.
Other covers include Guitar Slim's "Sufferin' Mind", James Brown's "I Go Crazy", and Marvin Gaye's "Trouble Man", all performed with passion in his own unique style.
For anyone new to Buddy, this album would be a terrific introduction. The man is a genius. To any aspiring blues guitarists like myself, listen and learn!
Not a single weak track and that's rare in any album, any genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Kind Of Wonderful 8 April 2005
By David W. Darby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Feels Like Rain was my introduction to Buddy Guy, and what a fine introduction it is! Altho some blues purists will complain that it isn't "pure" blues, and with it's all star cast, a sell-out, but I prefer to look at it as Buddy showing his versatility. From the Stevie Ray Vaughan-sque She's A Superstar, and Feels Like Rain (the smoldering and sensuous cover of the John Hiatt classic), to the red hot finale of Country Man, this to me is a much more consistant album than Damn Right. This CD proves that blues doesn't have to be confined to 12 bar covers of Elmore James and Robert Johnson. And since blues was conceived from slaves easing the pain of their confinement, isn't that what it's all about?

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun album that is accessible to non-blues fans. 4 Dec 2000
By WithPalmInHand - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is a good choice for the blues fan who resides with a non-blues fan. It's not as coarse or raw as some of his other stuff(which I also love), but still retains enough of his edge to keep me interested. He clearly concentrated more time on his vocal stylings as opposed to his guitar licks. Some tracks sound a bit over-produced and lose some atmosphere as a result. Other than that, it's a fun album that is worth picking up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but not truly memorable 1 Dec 2004
By Docendo Discimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
More of a mainstream rock record than Guy's first Silvertone album ("Damn Right I've Got The Blues"), and much more so than his third, "Feels Like Rain" is not where you go to listen to Buddy Guy the legendary blues guitarist.
In fact, this is some of Guy's least blues-oriented material...the only real blues tunes are Muddy Waters's "She's Nineteen Years Old" and John Mayall's "I Could Cry"; the rest of the album is dedicated to rock- and soul covers, blues-rock and pop-rock.

The production is rather slick...some more muscle and grit would have been nice, but Guy himself comes off quite well, as you'd expect. His guitar playing is not the best you'll ever hear from him, but his voice is excellent, strong and expressive, and while some of these covers are superflous at best, Guy's rendition of John Hiatt's "Feels Like Rain", Ray Charles' "Mary Ann", and the soul classic "Some Kind Of Wonderful" are really enjoyable (the latter is a duet featuring Paul Rodgers of Bad Company).
Bonnie Raitt guests on "Feels Like Rain", playing bell-clear slide guitar, and the band includes a great pianist, Bill Payne from Little Feat.

If you want to hear Buddy Guy play the blues, pick up "Buddy's Blues" from MCA/Chess, and Rhino's "The Very Best Of Buddy Guy". If you just want a regular feel-good rock record played by a number of better-than-average musicians, well, you'll probably like this just fine. So, depending on what you're looking for, this is either a nice, well-executed rock record, or a wishy-washy middle-of-the-road piece of pandering ;-)
5.0 out of 5 stars Proof why Buddy Guy is considered one of the best Electrict Blues Guitar Originators 24 Aug 2013

Every track on this album shows why Buddy Guy continues to be a true powerhouse in the Blues Genre. Bonnie Raitt also adds some fantastic vocals and slide guitar on the title track.

I love to listen to all different types of music and after my son saw Buddy Guy in Denver and said he thought the concert rocked I decided to get a couple of CD's and listen. Very nice!
