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 Skin Deep - The Best Of Today's Blues! 21 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Over the last few years I have become more and more infatuated by the blues. I have enjoyed (and bought the complete) Stevie Ray Vaughan/Eric Clapton/BB King/Joe Bonamassa/Walter Trout/Jonny Lang/Kenny Wayne Shepherd and many others. But...This offering from Buddy Guy is outstanding, even within that company. A truly stand out collection of blues tunes performed the way only Buddy can! Not a weak track here. Standouts...? Maybe the third track 'Lyin' Like A Dog' a slow searing blues, along with the opener 'Best Damn Fool', title track 'Skin Deep' and the blues homage 'Who's Gonna Fill Those Shoes'. Apparently Buddy Guy is 73 years old....Well, Buddy, if you are out there and you can, tell us what your secret is! Probably the very best CD I have heard this year...and I have bought boatloads...

If you love the blues, do not let this album pass you by!

This is another classic blues album from genre master Buddy Guy. OK, so the production is a little slick, and there are (as is usual for Guy albums) a lot of guest stars, but when Buddy gets going her really is the King of the Blues. His raw, powerful guitar sound rocks and shreds your speakers, as that voice, seemingly unwearied by its years, tells you of his pain. It's a great album of uptempo blues rock, long may he continue to produce such gems.

SONY have just brought out this double CD pack. I bought it for less than the price of this individual CD. It pays to shop around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Latter day Buddy 9 Dec 2013

I'm not sure about my personal choice of an album by someone who at one time was at the top of the genre. There's nothing wrong with it at all but I prefer his earlier work. Please don't put off purchasing this CD though.

Well just a few words Buddy Guy is in my estimation the out right finest guitarist on this planet currently , this Album reflects his roots of the Blues from track to track finesse are found in pure blues the "Buddy Guy" way.

For anyone who loves the Blues this is a must and a perfect starter to understanding a huge talent and in my opinion the ultimate King of the Blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime Buddy Blues 1 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
Buddy keeps on getting better, delivering spine tingling guitar solos and raw,powerful vocals. A top blues musician who plays the blues with real soul and emotion. The track skin deep is both soulful and heartwrenching. This album is a must for anyone who has been touched by the sound of an electric guitar.
