iTunes Review

Skin Deep is no concept album, but Buddy Guy says the overall tone collectively conveys that under our skin, we're all the same. Keeping with that theme, he invited a diverse amalgam of guests who all bring something of equal value to the party. Willie Mitchell and Memphis Horns help open with "Best Damn Fool," giving it a smoky Tennessee flavor before Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi lend some slide guitar and sultry singing (respectively) on "Too Many Tears." Eric Clapton cameos on "Everytime I Sing The Blues," letting his tasteful leads do most of the singing, but also chiming in on a few vocal harmonies. Robert Randolph's playing on "Out In The Woods" makes for an especially cool collaboration with his deep rooted Delta grit. Yet despite all the guests, Skin Deep is clearly Guy's party and he holds it down. His 62nd album is the very first one with all original material. It also happens to be the first time Guy has ever co-produced his own songs, and the recording value here is great. Big, clean Nashville production goes head-to-head with Guy's greasy, sweaty, swampy, soulful blues guitar to make for a perfect contrast.

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...
