After seeing Buddy Guy in concert recently in Hollywood, Florida, I was eager to buy any CD he had out there. Lucky for me Skin Deep was out there and his latest CD out. As Buddy said himself, his kind of Blues isn't what you'll hear on the radio. He's the real deal! I appreciate his work with Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks on this album. One song "Who will fill those shoes" featured a young man, Quinn Sullivan on guitar. Maybe it's just me but is Quinn that good that he already sounds like a seasoned Blues guitar player? All I can say is Holy Cow!
My husband is the Blues fan. He asked me to purchase this on the day it came out. Its a sweet CD. We saw Buddy Guy perform at the Seneca Alleghany Casino in April 09. Well worth the drive, he is a legend. If you dont have this CD already...go, run, buy it!!
EXCUSE ME BUT ITS REESE WYNANS ON B-3 A MUST HAVE CD FOR B-3 PLAYERS EXTREMLY SOUL FULL OF RYTHEM AND BLUES, OH YEA BUUDY AINT THAT BAD EITHER THANKS GUY,S-------------J.
The help from some stellar guests does not diminish the fact that this is Buddy Guy's cd. As in Shine A Light, when Buddy's front and center the side men are just that. The only difference is that these sidemen are of such a level to enhance the entire song. Derek Trucks slide just rings out on the title track to reinforce Buddy's singing. Bottom line: great playing and emotional signing from a legend. Grab it now.
