Buddy Guy - Damn Right I've Got the Blues (2005) Retail CD
Excellent production and mixing, crisp, clear sound, and a strong track list makes this one of Buddy Guy's strongest records, his second-best best latter-day album right behind 1994's pure blues CD "Slippin' In".
The track list spans classic electric blues, Memphis soul, and, well, John Hiatt. Guy's cover of Hiatt's "Where Is The Next One Coming From" is pretty good, but doesn't really add anything new to the song, and we don't really need another version of "Early In The Morning", especially not this rather bland one.
But there are highlights a-plenty nevertheless: Guy's eight-minute renditionmore… of Eddie Boyd's classic "Five Long Years" is a delicious, smouldering slow blues, and he lays down a great "Mustang Sally" and a fine rendition of Big Jay McNeely's mournful "There Is Something On Your Mind".
Buddy Guy's expressive tenor voice suits the slow, tortured blues songs on this set very well, but he performs equally well on the powerful, swaggering title track and the mid-tempo "Too Broke To Spend The Night", two of his best self-penned songs for a long, long time. "Too Broke" in particular is strongly reminiscent of Guy's sizzling 60s recordings for Chess, and this spirited reading of Willie Dixon's "Let Me Love You Baby" is among the highlights as well.
This expanded edition adds two bonus tracks, and while none of those are absolutely essential, they're not bottom-of-the-barrel scrapings either, so if you don't already have the original album, by all means, get the one with the bonus cuts on it. There's no need to buy it again, though; they're not that great.
Overall, "Damn Right" is a really fine album, deservedly winning Guy an Emmy back in 1991. The sometimes erratic veteran plays some tremendous electric guitar, and the self-penned material shows that Buddy Guy's muse is not spent after all.
