i would suggest getting Buddy's Baddest the greatest hits cd. it has a really representative samples, and is a great cd. on the cd theres a really cool song with johnny lang called "midnight train".
Too cool for a signature.

wow those are by far my least favorite, way more pop stuff and not as bluesy. different tastes i guess. I like Slippin in, Sweet Tea, Stone Crazy, and Live: the real deal. also check out all the records with him and junior wells.

I agree. My favorites are similar to the ones posted by aetherspear:
Sweet Tea, Stone Crazy, Slippin In, Live: The Real Deal. I also recommend Damn Right I Got the Blues. Try to get at least one of those albums if you can.

I have those albums and some others, but those are my favorites. I never heard Buddy's Baddest (greatest hits album), but it could be a good place to start to get an overall idea about him.

He's an amazing guitarist. My favorite blues guitarist actually, tied with Albert King.

I own that CD also, and this fellow tells the truth. I was stuck between a $50 discography or hit greatest hits. I will go back and get the discography soon, but pick this up, worth every penny.

I don't have anything to contribute to this thread other than Buddy Guy is so underrated. He rips. He even shreds occasionally.

get some of his early stuff from the Chess label, and A Man and the Blues from the Vanguard label. it's all really good.
