Buddy Guy - First Time I Meet The Blues (2023 Reissue)
180g virgin vinyl limited edition, the complete album. Renowned for his raw, blistering vocals and high-voltage guitar playing, the great Buddy Guy has remained a vital and current musician, moving blues forward without losing sight of its roots. He was a primary influence on blues-rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to that city's halcyon days of electric blues. This album presents him singing and playing some of his greatest hits backed by such outstanding figures as Junior Wells, Otis Rush, and Willie Dixon.
"Buddy Guy was for me what Elvis was probably like for other people... My course was set, and he was my pilot." - Eric Clapton
