I've been listening to Buddy for 40 years, he's had a chequered career with albums to match. This is one of his best, better than 'Damm right I've got the blues' with more emphasis on blues than blues-rock, a charateristic of 'Damm right'. His playing reminds me of his 60's 'Hoodoo Man Blues' album. The song material is also strong with good lyrics and catchy melodies, unusual for a blues album where rehashing of well known tunes is the norm. It's available at a knock down price now so even more of a bargain. Get it!

Buddy Guy IS blues guitar history, and he has made tons of albums, so some of them stand out. His latest 2010 offering is incredibly good. This 1994 one is a favourite of mine among many. The songs are just amazing, with "shame shame shame", and ... "man of many words" - that Bonamassa has picked up.
There is nothing much to say in this review, except this is MUST HAVE, BUY NOW.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 11 February 2013
Of all the classic blues singer-guitarists still with us - and so many have, sadly, now passed on - Buddy Guy and B.B. King have doggedly kept the flame burning.
This is a roaring, gut-busting set from 1994, with some of Buddy`s most eloquent, punchy guitar on a collection of eleven mostly excellent songs, on which both Buddy and his band shine. It sounds damn good too.
The great thing about Slippin` In is that it isn`t simply a fine blues album, it`s a fine album whatever you want to call it.
Listen to his solo on Love Her With A Feeling - that`s vibrant, exciting music, with a touch of rock and soul and a welter of blues feeling. Or hear his solo on the live Someone Else Is Slippin` In, which could curdle milk. He sounds a little like Hendrix at times, but then, this is a man who influenced everybody, from Jimi to Eric.
Don`t Tell Me About The Blues is another wonderful track, with stunning guitar work by Mr Guy. The final track, Cities Need Help, is social commentary couched in a superb five-minute blues-rock number, and a stylish way to bring proceedings to a close.
His singing is superb, as always - soulful, delicate where required, full-on when necessary.
Buddy`s band on this date is sensational. Scott Holt plays second guitar, the great Johnnie Johnson excels in the piano seat, Greg Rzab is on bass, with aptly named Ray "Killer" Allison very present and correct on drums. They all play together with - rather than behind - Buddy as if they`ve been doing this for decades.
Buddy Guy is one of those electric guitarists who can make his instrument talk. Sometimes he sweet-talks, other times he`s just plain dirty. Either way, he`s still speaking volumes with that guitar and long may he continue to do so.
If you love the blues, you must have this marvellous album. If you just love good music, I`d say it`s pretty essential too.
Happily recommended.

Against his own high standards, this really is nothing more than okay. Still a lot better than the wannabees, but feels a bit like playing by numbers. A pity.
