Roy Buchanan was one of America's true geniuses of the electric guitar. Even posthumously, he commands the ardent respect of his fellow guitarists and a devoted army of fans. The Buchanan sound is unique: heartbreaking, searing solos, trademark shimmering tone, gorgeous melodies and a mixture of lightning quickness and technical creativity that mark him as a wizard of the instrument.

This CD has some of the most original guitar pieces ever. It's up there with Jimi. Health Warning:Shredders, Grunge and Metals heads might not like the country blues roots. Buy it anyway and see what can be done by one man, a guitar and an amp alone. As a guitar player with a few years behind me I have come to the conclusion that RB must have bought his guitar from another planet.

Roy's second album, though not as showy as his later stuff, shows his remarkable talent in the context of a subtle, mellow album which stands up to repeated listening. I've owned a copy of this record for 20 years and I still get a kick out of it. Perhaps the highlight is "Five String Blues"; I love the way Roy makes the guitar cry at the end.

Very much a major improvement over his debut album this one and one solid album that breathes guitar all the way through it. The Second Album as it's called and very much is, very much is one of Roy's finest studio albums and a much better collection of songs and instrumentals grace this one. Once again Roy is with the same line up he had with the Snake Stretchers and on his debut album apart from Dan Payne on Bass who replaced Pate Van Allen.

There is no doubt that Roy wanted to show his ability on the guitar with this album and the opening 2 tracks "Filthy Teddy" and "After Hours" kick the album off very nicely at a blistering pace. Some mighty fine playing here from the great guitarist himself. The album continues in superb style with "Five String Blues" and I am not sure if he left out a string here, but boy does he play the blues, and there is some well fine piano from Dick Heintz too. Roy also sings on this one too and does a great job of it too. Roy may not be the best of singers especially in comparison to Eric Clapton's great blues voice, but he wipes the floor with him on the guitar that's for sure.

"Thank You Lord" is a very welcoming come down of a song and lovely to hear a bit of acoustic before it gets rounded off on the electric rather nicely here. Then we get a bit of rock n' roll with "Treat Her Right" which is certainly more fitting on this album in relation to his previous debut album, and keeps the album ticking over very well, and is followed by the cracking lovely well paced blues penned instrumentals of Roy's "I Won't Tell You No Lies".

Roy Buchanan Picked His Guitar Clean On This One! 9 Sept. 2001
By Brendan Munoz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Roy Buchanan was no doubt a amazing axe slinger. The fact that he remains even to this day virtually unknown fascinates me. His life was a walking blues song. His inner battles took him from us, but it was this struggle that made his playing so rough, raw and emotional. A player this amazing and emotionally driven should have garnered more attention in his short life.
Roy played his '53 Fender Telecaster (TeleRoy, or Nancy as Roy called it) like it was easy. He hit licks that remain unchallenged to this day.
The album opens up strong with the upbeat Filthy Teddy, a song that brings capo and string bending to a whole new high. The guitar sounds like it is REALLY crying. I find blues muscians that can make their instruments talk, extremely enjoyable.
Ol' Roy proved he could hit low down and dirty blues too on tracks like Thank You Lord. This painful, slow low down, dirty bottom of the 1/5 of booze blues is what Roy was best known for.
This album might seem short, being that it is only 8 tracks. But, Roy packs so much guitar, emotion and blues into those 8 tracks that you don't feel slighted or denied anything.
This is one blues album that requires no Second thought when purchasing. If you don't know Roy, then maybe you should!

RB's best blues album 10 May 2006
By Al - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Roy's best selling studio album to this date is still pure class after 34 years. Unlike many albums he made before and after this one, SECOND ALBUM has a consistent direction to it without being dull like alot of his later work. First of all, AFTER HOURS is bliss (NOTE: listen around the 1min 20sec mark, when it sounds like he gets his fingers stuck between the strings! FIVE STRING BLUES consolidates Roy's belief that he was half-man half-wolf - he makes that telecaster squeal, whinge and carry on like a pork chop. Personal favourite: I WON'T TELL YOU NO LIES; a jazzy, impressionist masterpiece that's still classic Roy.

This album plays to Buchanan's strengths: with only 2 sung-songs, there's plenty of room for Roy to steal the show with his swashbuckling fretwork. Don't miss this one.

If you love the sound of an electric guitar ... 15 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
... you can't miss this! 1973 has been a magic year! So many music masterpieces have been released that year. In my opinion this is one of those masterpieces. Don't miss it.
Thank the Lords for ROY BUCHANAN 22 Jun. 2011
By Ward Hilgers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is my 38th year of playing guitar. And I mean playing guitar like it's got to happen everyday. Roy is and continues to be such a deeply spiritual experience for me. His playing transcends the guitar. It becomes pure emotion. He makes sounds that haven't been heard on the guitar before or since. Roys love of so many different music styles definitely helped him become the player he became. I notice this more and more as I get older and have also listened to classical, flamenco, old country, world music, and jazz. I am not going to stretch this out, Roy is a guitar players guitar player. He's that special. Not a guitar guy that's in a band that has a singer and the singer sings on every song. Roy is the singer and he will make you cry and your head shake side to side in disbelief time after time. He makes me laugh and cry, what more can you ask of a guitar player.

Thanks Roy.

Classic Roy proves who is the "Master of the Telecaster" 11 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In each of the cuts, Roy lays down tasteful, masterful and poignant guitar licks. Although his first album may have already proved it, this album leaves no doubt, answering the question of who is best at playing the electric guitar.
