After decades of paying dues, Buddy Guy has emerged as the most heralded bluesman of his generation, a hugely influential guitarist and passionate, dynamic live performer. But Buddy started as a sideman, and toiled in the Chicago clubs for a decade before beginning his march to worldwide fame.

Buddy began as a sideman in Baton Rouge, playing primarily with the late Raful Neal (father of ... Read more in Amazon's Buddy Guy Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Music so real, you can feel the sweat! 16 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The title for this live set says it all the power playing of Buddy Guy and his band,recorded at his own night club he is bound to get a great reception! But what a performance he can almost feel the heat from the crowd from the speakers as you listen to this great live recording truly a impressive sound. The label "silvertone" really know there stuff, even on a walkman this sounds great, but on a good set-up hold onto your hat WOW!!!

This fine, athmospheric 1996 live album finds George "Buddy" Guy backed by the Saturday Night Live Band, playing a nine-song set at his own "Legends" night club in Chicago, Illinois. And fans of Buddy Guy the bluesman, rather than Buddy Guy the occational rock singer and funk experimentalist, will be salivating when they check out the set list!

There is no hard rock riffing here, no misguided funk, just blues, plain and simple. Buddy Guy's playing is tight and thoroughly inspired, and he gets superb backing from former Chuck Berry-pianist Johnnie Johnson, whose solo on the T-Bone Walker-like "I've Got News For You" is one of several instrumental highlights, as well as by the six-man horn ensemble, which doesn't overwhelm him at all, but provide a nice counterpoint to his playing, keeping quiet when they need to keep quiet and riffing away when they don't. Very nice scoring there.

Some blues guitarists, like B.B. King, literally can't play a chord, but Buddy Guy plays rhythm and lead guitar equally well, and his voice is still clear and powerful in spite of his sixty years. His vocals on "Sweet Black Angel" momentarily lose their focus, but overall this is a really strong performance by the sixty-year-old guitarist.
Guy does a dense, gritty cover of Elmore James' classic "Talk To Me, Baby (I Can't Hold Out)", a powerhouse of a song which rides along on the heavy but never plodding beat of drummer Shawn Pelton. He tears through his own "I've Got My Eyes On You", and performs a stylish, seven-minute version of his classic Chess single "My Time After A While". Willie Dixon's "Let Me Love You" never sounded better than this (except, perhaps, for the slightly hysterical first guitar solo).

This is Buddy Guy in his best Blues mood - no frills, just great guitar playing and soulful singing. The Saturday Night Band are especially good, providing a really full sound behind him. It's a well chosen set in his own club, where he always enjoys playing to the converted I expect! I you only want one Buddy Guy album then this is the one to own - free from the more popular sounds he generated on his more commercial albums. If you like the Blues this is a perfect addition to your collection.

Having seen Buddy Guy play live, I know how good he is and how he interacts with the crowd, so I bought this thinking it would be like that. It's good, and worth the money, although the set list could be better. I suppose nothing on CD/tape/vinyl can be better than "The Real Deal"
