There's one track on this album that sees 74 year old Buddy Guy dueting with 83 year old B B King called 'Stay Around A Little Longer'.And this track alone makes this set worth buying, and all I keep hoping is not just one track but please a whole album by the two greatest living blues legends,still at the top of their game still able to perform all over the world to packed houses,still appearing aT Major Festivals and tearing the places apart.Buddy Guy is not settling into older age by toning it down ,take one listen to this and I'll tell you even the younger kids on the block can't cxut the groove the way he can.His guitar playing has and continues to set the standard,gentle one minute the next he's about stripping the wallpaper off again. Apart from the track withh B B and some guitar from Santana on one track this is all about Buddy and his band giving us a slice of really stunning blues.All new material much by the man himself.A dozon tracks of the best blues you'll hear anywhere this year.Easing down ,forget it this isd the blues master giving us a masterclass of the music in another awesome set of the best blues money can buy/Opening with'74 Years Young' and closing with a piece callede 'Skanky' we're treated here to blues no one should miss...5 stars cand then some

I've always loved Buddy Guy - even in his slightly cheesy "lounge blues" incarnation. I was blown away by his Sweet Tea album when it came out a few years ago and, although I didn't think Skin Deep was great, I still enjoyed it. This new album sits right up there with his best work - the guitar playing is fresh and exciting, the arrangements are full and strong, and Buddy's voice, albeit a little croakier than once it was, is still as full of passion as ever.

I first heard Buddy Guy on an old Marble Arch compilation album back in the early sixties. Then there was the stunning set with Junior Wells on Chicago/The Blues/ Today (now beautifully remastered and reissued as a cd boxed set). The guitar work on Vietcong Blues was just in a different league to all those ploddy British bluesbands. How could anyone get better than this?
Well, Buddy Guy certainly could! This latest album is stunning. At 74, he can play any other rock/blues guitarist off the stage - and we haven't got to put up with those embarrasing 'soul' numbers that were fillers on the early albums (Mary had a Little Lamb anyone?)

Buddy Guy: Living Proof

This is a great blues album by one of the great bluesmen.
Buddy Guy is "74 Years Young" as he says on Track 1 and can still blast out a heavy blues riff to put many younger guitarists to shame.
The voice is a classic bluesman's growl, still, though with the ability to rumble more softly when the song requires it.

"Stay Around A Little Longer" - the duet with 84-year-old B.B. King - simply has to bring a lump to the throat of any longtime blues fan. The Carlos Santana guest slot is less distinguished but still worth a listen.

This album won't change the world, but you will find yourself playing it often.

74 years old and Buddy Guy, who I seriously have never heard of before (shame of me), rips out solo after solo that let younger and more famour guitar players pale in comparison.
But it is mostly the heartfelt, honest and supreme blues feel with great songwriting and singing that makes this album so great.
Highly recommended.

This is a top quality album with BG singing as well as I can remember. The guitar may be a little less sharp than in his younger days, but he's still unmistakeable, and delivers on (almost) every track. More of a blues record than Bring Em In and Skin Deep, and better production than on Sweet Tea.

If you like Buddy Guy then you will not be disappointed. This album is absolutely superb.

He just gets better with age, but then don't believe me, buy it and you will see.
There is a warmth to his songs that draw you in.

I don't think I can name one average track on the album, it is exceptional, and you can't say that very often these days.

This is my album of the year and living proof that life begins at 70 if you're a bluesman called Buddy Guy. Or to be more specific if you're called Buddy Guy and you're "74 Years Young" and you've jammed with The Rolling Stones.
This is Buddy Guy the blues singer, the showman and, of course, the wicked guitarist playing a variety of Martins and Stratocasters (including his trade mark 'Polka Dot')at the very top of his game. Every track is a delight, most written or co-written by producer and drummer Tom Hambridge; in particular the raunchily honest "74 Years Young" and the even raunchier "Key Don't Fit" along with the autobiographical "Thank Me Someday" and, tongue in cheek, "Living Proof".
If Guy's musicianship and jaunty vocal attack, backed by a superb house band and female chorus wasn't enough, there are bonus tracks featuring duets with two other guitar legends. On "Where the Blues Began", it's Carlos Santana and from the opening riff you know it can't be anyone else. And then the big guns come out on "Stay Around A Little Longer" where Guy and the awesome B.B. King plya, sing and reminiss together on how much they love the life they lead. This is a hauntingly tender song; a miniature masterpiece performed by two masters of their craft.
