GOOD SLOW SUBTLE GUITAR PLAYING
on 5 May 2012
I bought this album as Walter Trout recommended it as one of his favorite albums and I was'nt disappointed. I can see how Eric Clapton was influenced by Buddy and to some extent has a similar style. The guitar playing is very subtle and most of the tracks are long slow soulful blues with some great piano playing by Otis Spann. It was released in 1968 and probably influenced most of the great British guitar players of the time E.C. jeff Beck, Peter Green, John Mayall, Jimmy Page etc.
It's a wonderful piece of nostalgia but above all it's a great blues album by one of the great guitar blues players.
