Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Buddy Guy, Acoustic And Electric Blues Master

Buddy Guy is a longtime blues master in both the acoustic and electric genres, as he makes quite clear here. He performs "Crawlin' Kingsnake" and "Damn Right I've Got The Blues"; the former is from his acoustic "Blues Singer" album, and the latter is the title track of an electric album. I highly recommend both, but don't just take it from me. Here's what Eric Clapton has to say: "Buddy Guy is by far and without a doubt the best guitar player alive... If you see him in person, the way he plays is beyond anyone. Total freedom of spirit, I guess… He really changed the course of rock and roll blues."
