4.0 out of 5 stars Skip the "Best Of" albums, and buy this..., 18 April 2009

This review is from: Man & the Blues (Audio CD)
When buying a Buddy Guy record it seems easy to be quickly drowned in the abundance of compliation albums that seem to float around for him. So it's easy to miss that Buddy did have some cracking albums in him - and "A Man and the Blues" is definitely one of them.

Atmosphere is key on this album. A mellow, late night jazz club feel prevails here. Sure, it's blues music, but the arrangements and playing by his band are subtle and intricate. There is not much blues rock bluster here. Buddy responds with some playing that is fierce one minute and delicate the next. Much the same could be said for his singing. He certainly knows how to pile it on thick in one bar and then reign it all back in the next.

It's a cracking selection of tunes (I'm sure Stevie Ray Vaughan was of that view, as he took "Mary Had A Little Lamb" from this record). So if you're looking for a clever, colourful and stylish blues album I would recommend you start here.
