Album Review

Buddy Guy's music has changed a great deal since this album was recorded in Chicago in 1981. It is possible that Guy has never sounded better than this, tearing into some deep indigo blues, letting his guitar wail loud on every cut, and playing with inspiration, especially on the title cut and "Dedication to the Late T-Bone Walker," a track that seems to spring from some place deep within himself. Nor was he the only one on fire at the sessions. Brother Phil Guy shares the guitar work and contributes vocals to both "Garbage Man Blues" and "Mellow Down." The recording makes no attempt to capture a wide audience. This is Buddy Guy playing and feeling the blues, pure and simple, without any sense of compromise — and it's all the better for it, putting much of the rest of his catalog into perspective. Rarely is the blues this heartfelt — and rarer still is it so well played. If this were his only recorded legacy, he'd still warrant the stature he's achieved.

Buddy's last real record

Great record, one of the last real records he made, when he was still hungry, and the backing band, are all still alive and working around Chicago!!!! Get this as soon as you can!!!

The JSP records rock!

Buddy's JSP records are fantastic! Made during a long spell when US companies had no use for the legend's deep blues and Hendrix-like jams (Chess wouldn't record that stuff either), Buddy cut loose with some pure dynamite! His brother Phillip (who died a year ago) provides great support on rhythm guitar. All three JSP's have been re-released with about three different covers each, and "Live At The Checkerboard" actually had a song and part of another deleted.The title song is understandably bitter, and the T-bone tribute is sweeeet.

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...
