Live At Legends ~ Buddy Guy

Like others here, I love Buddy Guy's music with a passion and have (virtually) his entire back catalogue in one form or another. I have also seen him live in person in Chicago during the 2005 Chicago Blues Festival when he headlined on the main stage and also appeared in his own club Legends. But this performance / release adds little to what has been an outstanding catalogue to date. Getting the small points out of the way, only 8 of the 11 tracks are live, and 3 of those are mish mash medleys in which Guy tips his hat to his UK colleagues past and present of the blues business (notably Clapton & Hendrix).

I "discovered" Johnny Moeller through the fact that he is the new lead guitarist with The Fabulous Thunderbirds who I like a lot and have all their material. And how pleased am I to discover Johnny Moeller??? Well, very very pleasded indeed. This CD is just one fantastic track after another - there are hints of Jimmie Vaughan here, influences of bands like The Ventures, and well it's no surprise with his playing style that JM fits very well indeed into the latest line up of TFB. The whole CD is upbeat and uplifting, retro and funky, bluesy and strangely poppy at the same time - this is a fun CD!! I made the mistake of puting this CD in my car when I first bought it and it was the only… Read more
