  • Description

    A reissued slice of blues history (previously jewel case, now digipak) - Buddy Guy, one of the greatest blues performers there has ever been, profesionally recorded performing in front of his home audience, his neighbours, friends and fellow musicians in his own club which was very much situated in the Chicago ghetto.

    This is thought to be the only commercially recorded album cut in a Southside club, rather than the tourist crowd Northside clubs where other live blues recordings have been made. It was a great night, with Buddy at the absolute peak of his powers - stunningly powerful and inventive guitar and impassioned vocals -and an impressive accompanying band.

    Buddy Guy (vocals, guitar), Phil Guy (guitar, vocal track 8), Little Phil Smith (guitar), J W Williams (bass), Ray Allison (drums), L C Thurston (vocal track 9).
