EDITORS’ NOTES

One of Buddy Guy’s most uncompromising, unforgettable latter-day albums, Sweet Tea finds the Chicago-blues legend paying tribute to the Mississippi hill-country sound popularized by Fat Possum Records. Tackling tunes by blues heroes like Junior Kimbrough and Cedell Davis, Guy’s guitar work is raw, unhinged, and searing with indignation. When he rips into Kimbrough's "Baby Please Don't Leave Me" or Davis' "She Got the Devil in Her" atop overdriven bass and slam-bang drums, he sounds like a lion gnashing prey between its mighty teeth.
