    Personnel includes: Buddy Guy, G.E. Smith, The Saturday Night Live Band.
    As close as Buddy Guy's ever likely to come to recapturing the long-lost Chess sound. Cut live at his popular Chicago nightspot, Buddy Guy's Legends, with guitarist G.E. Smith's horn-leavened Saturday Night Live Band and pianist Johnnie Johnson in lush support, Guy revisits his roots on sumptuous readings of "I've Got My Eyes on You," "Ain't That Lovin' You," "My Time After Awhile," and "First Time I Met the Blues." No outrageous rock-based solos or Cream/Hendrix/Stevie Ray homages; this is the Buddy Guy album that purists have salivated for the last quarter century or so. ~ Bill Dahl

  • Critic Reviews
    Mojo (Publisher) (6/96, p.113) - "...[Guy] revisits vintage Chess material and more recent Silvertone songs with equally fiery results. Prodigal with both voice and guitar, on slow blues...or strutting uptempos...Buddy Guy performs out of his skin and into another [Grammy] nomination."
