Editors’ Notes

Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues is one of a handful of albums that pushed Chicago blues into the modern age. After laying low for most of the '80s, Buddy Guy came roaring back on the scene with renewed purpose. He was obviously energized by the leftfield choice in producer. Englishman John Porter was best known as engineer of the Smiths and Roxy Music, two bands who are about as far from Guy’s sweat-soaked city blues as you can get. Yet, Porter’s booming production brings new life to Guy’s music. Rather than retrofitted, these songs sound revitalized. Their strength is aided in no small part by a powerhouse rhythm section comprised of Chicago blues bassist Greg Rzab and former Little Feat drummer Richie Hayward. The heavyweight guest-list — Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Mark Knopfler — doesn’t detract from Guy, but instead underscores his inimitable talent. Guy might not be as fast or as flashy as his junior competitors, but every note shoots off him with the force of a shockwave.

Customer Reviews

One of the Damn Best!

If you do not own this album...this is a must have blues classic. One of my all time favorite albums by Buddy. This is a playlist that will always make you come back for more.

Ain't got nothin' but the blues

I've been a fan of blues music for over a quarter century. One of the reasons I love the blues is that well.... in life, sometimes you're the fly, sometimes you're the windshield. And at those moments when the windshield hits really hard, blues music makes you feel better to know that you're not alone, that other people out there know where you're at; they've been there and can relate. With lyrics (courtesy of John Hiatt) like: "Well I had a job, but I got laid off
I had a heart but it got too soft
I had a girlfriend and she lied
I had a wife but my wife she died One too many drinks about an hour ago
All I want now's just one more
And when it hit, a baby I don't care
 Where (where)
Where (where)
Where (where)
Oh where Where is the next one comin' from
Where is the next one comin' from" ... lyrics like that, accompanied with searing guitar can help get you through just about anything you need to get through. I own about a dozen of Buddy's albums. In my opinion this one of his two best (along with the "un-plugged" thing he did with Junior Wells a while back (can't remember the name of it but get that one too.))

Buddy Guy is one of the most celebrated blues guitarists of his generation (and arguably the most celebrated), possessing a sound and style that embodied the traditions of classic Chicago blues while also embracing the fire and flash of rock & roll. Guy spent much of his career as a well-regarded journeymen, cited as a modern master by contemporary blues fans but not breaking through to a larger audience, before he finally caught the brass ring in the 1990s and released a series of albums that made...
