Covers his complete recording history, spanning 25 years and drawing from more than half a dozen labels.
Trying to boil down a prolific year career into 18 songs is an impossible task, but that doesn't stop Rhino from taking a shot. To its credit, this single-CD compilation reaches across many labels, highlighting Guy's explosive work for Chess and Vanguard in the s, Atlantic in the s, and diverse labels in the s. On the other hand, his Chess and Vanguard work deserve significantly more attention than they're given here.
In addition, Guy's rejuvenated s work for Silvertone is completely ignored. The result is a rather cursory overview of Guy's career, despite the high quality of what is present. The benefit of this approach, however, is that it displays Guy's versatility: The Guy of feverish guitar pyrotechnics, wailing vocals, and rocker intensity lives alongside a smoother, more soulful and melodic Guy.

If you love Man and the Blues album sound it's all here and so many other great hits. His singing in all A Game. The intro alone is an unreal display of all Buddy Guy. I bought an import with this song on it that has a longer min intro but this version starts at min into the song and is just jaw dropping.
I have heard no other guitarist sound like those licks. I would put this next to my Albert King Blues Power album as a desert album. If you only had to pick one album this Buddy Guy selection is an must have.
One person found this helpful. Love some Buddy Guy! Good Cd. I love to hear him play and sing! Very, very fine selection of Buddy Guy tunes. He doesn't get the credit that he deserves as a blues pioneer. Bluesy - of course and a good solid album of songs, some of which have been given the full house treatment and makeover later in his second coming type career.
Interesting to compare. If you are a fan of Buddy you should get this and make sure you get the album "Stone Crazy" - but if you are a fan you will probabably already have that killer. I first saw Buddy Guy play in the mid at a bar in that small Midwestern university town where I went to grad school. In fact, prior to that time, I hadn't really been a blues fan at all. But Buddy Guy made me a blues fan. This is not a live album, but it's one of his best. If you like the blues, and or Buddy Guy, you will really like this catalogue.
Good quality and good assortment. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. It would be easy to fill 3 CDs with Buddy's greatest works but his one is still a good selection. I've owned some of this material in the past on vinyl but wanted a digital copy as it contains some of my favorite tracks. The sizzling live "First time I met the blues" is from the very rare 'Chicago Blues' film soundtrack and almost worth the price of the CD along check out Youtube for the video that goes with it.
Some of the other tracks are hard to get now too making this even more worthwhile. Talking of prices, Amazon's own is a bit steep, I used one of the other suppliers under the 'New' link and got it cheaper.
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Very good condition. Plays perfectly! The very best! You have to hear this album! Buddy Guy has been around since Christ was a corporal, which is saying quite a lot if one considers the casualty rate for blues artists, from natural or artistic causes. Buddy must have had good luck with nature. As a guitarist though, luck has nothing to do with it: Buddy Guy is at the top of the game.
