This guest-studded album relaunched Buddy Guy's career and set him toward the pinnacle of contemporary blues. Despite turns from Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler and others, it's Guy who burns brightest--and loudest. He delivers roaring, exuberant performances of classic R&B ("Mustang Sally"), old-time blues ("Black Night") and house rockers ("Where Is the Next One Coming From"). Most poignant, though, is his seven-minute instrumental "Rememberin' Stevie", which not only rekindles the fiery spirit of his own youth, but pays sensitive tribute to his late friend and admirer Stevie Ray Vaughan. This is the blueprint for Guy's current performing style. --Ted Drozdowski
I noticed quite a few people have gotten tired of the "Mustang Sally" song; and it is not appreciated "done here" in a rather standard format. I've always liked Wilson Pickett's tune even if over played, due in large part to The Commitments soundtrack (1991) and movie when "Sally" (ride Sally ride...) was reborn to the heights of overkill. It WAS overplayed, but I do like Buddy Guy's (mild, yeah) guitar solo to give the song a deserved 4 minute 43 second length. Pickett version was too short. And, I hadn't actually heard it in quite a few years so I believe a "statute of limitations" may finally be in order. At least for me.
But, Damn Right I Got The Blues has a nice variety of reckless Buddy Guy guitar play and those oh-so-aching-haunting and beautiful sounds-of-after-midnight blues. "Black Night" is so absorbing in its blues pace and strung out echoing Buddy Guy guitar chords that I think I melted/melded/molded into my sleepy time bed.
And the homage song "Rememberin' Stevie". Sometimes you can tell just how someone was truly inspired by someone else.
Nothing fake here. True bluesmen at their best where imitation (and crystal clarity) is nothing but the greatest of compliments.
Love the fact this is a hard working 54 minute 1991 blues album by a living legend.
And Buddy probably deserves less grief for re-riding the "Mustang" hobby horse. Nobody could have realized just how popular The Commitments would be. Besides, the 2 albums were released the same year.
Which one was first?
Surprisingly, this over the top try hard attitude worked for the album. Not only does it work, but song after song of total and complete perfection jives and hits every soft spot. How Buddy Guy pulls this off is a mystery. Most of the time an over the top try hard album turns flat somewhere in the first five seconds of the first song while the audience finds the door or the dial.
Buddy Guy is an old hand at this though.
Somehow, the album comes across as fresh, like Buddy was out of his element. You can almost hear the producer whispering in his ear to go further with the sound, try harder.
And its fantastic.
Why it works, I am not sure.
Buddy Guy, Damn right I got the Blues is one of the finest blues Albums and it is my top favorite
