Editors’ Notes

Buddy Guy isn’t just an old-school bluesman; he’s an old-school showman. So if his albums seem a bit brighter and more conceptual than those by his contemporaries, it’s because Guy is every bit as much a goodwill ambassador to the music as he is a practitioner. This results in tracks that sizzle with a modern-era patina and guests such as Kid Rock, three-fifths of Aerosmith, Gary Clark Jr., Keith Urban, and Beth Hart. This 2013 issue is divided into two halves. The first is “Rhythm"; the second is “Blues.” But that's more a statement of purpose than anything listeners need to concern themselves with. Fact is, these tracks rock harder and louder than ever. Whether this is a good thing rests with your devotion to the “pure” Chicago-styled blues of the '50s and how much you enjoy hearing Steven Tyler going mouth to mouth on “Evil Twin.” (For the record, Tyler sounds more road-weary and worn than Guy!) “One Day Away” with Urban catches a sleek groove; it could bring Guy to commercial radio and to country fans, who'd surely admire the man’s soul.

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...
