But the way this works, if Eric Clapton covers a Muddy Waters tune, they put it on the radio. Not Muddy. Or me.
Know what I'm talking about? I did. But though his famous guitar-hero disciples talked him up, he never really cracked the white mainstream. Then blues-rock faded, and he struggled. Once more unto the breach, I thought. But I had no idea when—or if—this time Buddy Guy would wind up where he deserved to be. It was a long and winding road. But we all know how it turned out. In , Guy copped his first Grammy. In , Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival cemented him into the blues-rock honor roll he'd done so much to shape.
In , he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So here are 25 outstanding tracks to celebrate his 60th year as a recording artist… and trace Mr.
Stone Crazy's trail of switchbacks to becoming a true guitar hero. Recently arrived in the Windy City from his Louisiana birthplace, Guy won a contest to land a recording contract. This first cut, from , shows he's essentially who he's gonna become. The influence of his undersung idol Guitar Slim infuses the feel down to the horns and breakdown.
Catch the jumpy finish to his solo: his hotfoot timing is exquisitely unpredictable yet precise, and already part of his vocabulary. This cut helped prompt the Chess brothers to take Guy on as a session player, since Willie Dixon and Otis Rush asked, and Muddy Waters, their biggest star, agreed, calling Guy his "adopted son. It's unnerving as hell. Its staccato outbursts and super-slinky bends exhibit subtle timing and unexpected phrasing—a Buddy Guy signature that evolved, in part, from manipulating the two-string diddley bow young Buddy first learned to play.
His solo and fills dart and careen, then stretch notes past their breaking points. His frenetic guitar and keening vocals were so distinctive and outrageous that the Chess brothers tried to tamp him down: Leonard harrumphed that his guitar was "noise. But as he logged in sessions behind Chess greats, Guy kept building an onstage rep for cut-me-loose showmanship and breathtaking technique while becoming a team player who could step up big-time.
When Guy billed as "Friendly Chap" to avoid hassles with Chess joined Wells to cut Hoodoo Man Blues in , the harmonica-wielding singer was the bandleader they'd later share the billing. The album sold surprisingly well, put tiny Delmark Records on the map, and became a classic. The duo's chemistry was so compelling their partnership endured and blossomed, with some breaks, for decades. Along the way they influenced dozens of white groups, like the seminal Paul Butterfield Blues Band : Butterfield took many cues on harp and vocals from Wells, and Mike Bloomfield vacuumed up Guy's asymmetric licks and idiosyncratic timing.
Bonus: Don't miss Guy's guitar fed through the studio's Hammond organ Leslie cabinet on the title track. Necessity was the mother of invention here, since Guy's amp broke down; but the results heralded new sonic futures. This blues-meets-soul outing reflected a growing trend, from Wells' band to guitarist Lowell Fulson 's tangy blues-soul mixes.
The choked-up solo on Leave My Girl Alone and the fierce rhythm strumming lace this blues with nail-biting tension. And just to keep you from pigeonholing his guitar attack, Crazy Love proffers a solo out of Buddy Holly 's playbook. All acoustic jams, it puts Guy and Wells in a room with pianist Junior Mance and lets the musical chips fall. This loose-limbed cut, just Guy and Wells, shows how deep their blues roots go, how naturally fluent their interactions are.
It's a usually unheralded aspect of Guy's talents. Inevitably, the blues revival's mass popularity, occurring while black Americans were still struggling for civil rights, spotlighted the nation's racial issues. The hour-long movie Chicago Blues starkly captured the music's black creators in the small, gritty clubs they still called home—and aimed to reclaim the genre's glory from its arena-filling white stars.
Raw and serrated, with Guy's guitar stabbing and lunging, this became a staple of his shows. The movie intercuts Guy's performance with scenes scanning bleakly across some of racism's effects on Chicago's South Side. He asked Wells and Guy to come on down. The idea: break these guys to his huge audience. Well, most of it. Following the live-in-the-studio template that yielded 'Layla', the sessions started with a bang.
Then they tailed off and disintegrated; heavy drug use, which had driven and at times derailed 'Layla', probably didn't help. The eight tracks from those sessions sat in Atlantic Record's storage for two years, until yet another producer brought in the J.
Geils Band to wrap things up. Arguably the album's stellar track, it rides seductively funky beats that's Dr. John on piano and unleashes the sort of torrential guitar storm that only Guy could torque up.
The B side, Honeydripper , is its polar opposite: a low-key jam with the Geils Band. When the album finally came out, with its strange but striking cover image, it was praised, but it didn't supersize their audience. And so Guy and Wells went back to work. Ten Years Ago serves up fascinating atmospherics that set up pyrotechnics—pacing like this is part of what made their stage shows so dynamic.
Clapton, Wyman, a host of others before and after: It's not like A-list white musicians didn't try to put Guy and Wells over. Guy toured and recorded when he could, rarely cracking mainstream media. Long years passed before there was a sign that things could turn around. A small Chicago label, Alligator, was devoted to creating a solid niche market for blues greats. A standout slow blues, Outskirts of Town uncorks Guy's serrated vocals and one of his off-the-hook solos that slices and dices time and tonality with the finesse of a samurai chef on speed.
It reminds us why lifelong fan Jeff Beck always says he owes him. The title track has become his theme song. And to bait this bid for overdue mainstream props, Beck joins him on Mustang Sally , and burns a solo and fills that underscore how much he's made Guy's outrageous skronk sensibility and attack his own thing.
So what's not to like? Well, like a lotta graybeards who saw Guy back when, I'd rather he didn't go so far on the soft-focus pop and star collaborations tip.
I also know it's about getting the media play and cash he never really got. When you get your shot, grab it. That's what he does here. So here it is. But Hendrix told us different, and the more I saw Guy the more I found out what he meant, right down to the chitlin' circuit flash: picking with his teeth, on the floor, on his knees, behind his head, and all.
Here Buddy flips the script as he pushes on his comeback. One thing I learned watching and interviewing Buddy over the years: he's a preternatural guitar mimic who can play almost anyone's licks with real feeling, and Jimi's are no exception.
But with a difference: Kramer steered Guy away from the endless, often musically vaporous collaborations his pop producers were encouraging, and dug him back into the blues, tapping Double Trouble as his rhythm section. It was inspired. Guy surfs the rock-solid bottom like he's subdividing rhythms into microns, his tone fat and sassy, his notes tailing into darting squiggles and smeary glisses.
You can feel him grinning. On this outing he was the starpower to help a friend and fan. His tasty restraint on the solo is another way of showing his respect—for Green and for Robert Johnson , daddy of them all. The difference between this cut and most of Guy's pop crossover stuff is his partner. Tracy Chapman has an amazing voice, subtle and virtuosic, richly timbred and expressive; her feel for genres like blues and soul is dyed in the bone.
Together, she and Guy make smoldering fire. So he took his shot with both hands, and reworked "Red House," itself a lyric pastiche of old blues.
Another Grammy chalked up…and why not? King , a heroes-in-twilight affair meant to tug at your heartstrings…which it should. After all, B. At least he is where he wanted and deserves to be.
Time heals some wounds. The month each year that he used to play at his club Legends triggered pilgrimages. On 's Live at Legends , he burns his own joint down with sly tributes amidst his usual set-list killers.
And with Mannish Boy , he tips his hat to the man he always credited with ushering him into the Chicago blues orbit and mentoring him through his worst days. But it's a lot of raunchy fun. And if anyone deserves to have that, it's Buddy Guy. What Happened To Lonnie Mack? Great Live Albums From The '60s. Remember Chess Records?

ГЛАВА 87 Веспа выехала в тихий переулок Каретерра-де-Хуелва. Еще только начинало светать, но движение уже было довольно оживленным: молодые жители Севильи возвращались после ночных пляжных развлечений. Резко просигналив, пронесся мимо мини-автобус, до отказа забитый подростками. Мотоцикл Беккера показался рядом с ним детской игрушкой, выехавшей на автостраду.
Я подумала, что АНБ его ликвидировало. - Вот. Если АНБ в состоянии вывести пять риолитовых спутников на геостационарную орбиту над Ближним Востоком, то, мне кажется, легко предположить, что у нас достаточно средств, чтобы подкупить несколько испанских полицейских.
Сьюзан не могла с этим смириться, видя, как он выкладывает за их обед свою дневную заработную плату, но спорить с ним было бесполезно. Она в конце концов перестала протестовать, но это продолжало ее беспокоить.
Что он не мог разобрать, но все-таки кое-как прочитал первые буквы, В них не было никакого смысла. И это вопрос национальной безопасности. Беккер вошел в телефонную будку и начал набирать номер Стратмора. Не успел он набрать международный код, как в трубке раздался записанный на пленку голос: Todos los circuitos estan ocupados - Пожалуйста, положите трубку и перезвоните позднее.
Да, - сказала. - Кроме того, ТРАНСТЕКСТ уже больше двадцати часов не может справиться с каким-то файлом. Фонтейн наморщил лоб. - Это по вашим данным. Мидж хотела возразить, но прикусила язык. И прижала ладонь к горлу. - В шифровалке вырубилось электричество.
Замечательный одеколон, Грег. Вылил целую бутылку. Хейл включил свой компьютер. - Специально для тебя, дорогая.
