Buddy GUY – Live, The Real Deal With G.E. Smith & The Saturday Night Live Band 2006 (CD and AVI)


Filmed on location at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago, Illinois, “Live – The Real Deal” pairs Grammy Award winning blues artist Buddy Guy with G.E. Smith and the Saturday Night Live Band. Some of Guy’s most-loved, classic songs are featured, including “Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues,” “My Time After Awhile,” and “I’ve Got News for You”. Joining G.E. Smith are musicians such as Lenny Pickett and Johnny Johnson among others.

The DVD includes the songs “I’ve Got My Eyes On You”, “Sweet Black Angel (Black Angel Blues)”, “Talk To Me Baby”, “My Time After A While”, “I’ve Got News For You”, “Damn Right I’ve Got The Blues”, “First Time I Met The Blues” and “Let Me Love You Baby”.
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.

Buddy Guy is without a doubt one of the greatest guitar players in the world. This film, which showcases Guy live at his world famous “Legends” takes us on a musical journey. It not only shows us the immensly talented Guy playing with G.E. Smith and the Saturday Night Live band but it also features interview clips in which Guy recalls his early days, his influences as well as his brushes with other bluesmen as Muddy Waters. This film is brilliantly directed and filmed. The most important thing, however, is the music. It does not get any better with fiery blues riffs, solos, his charismatic stage presence and of course the trademark passionate voice of Buddy Guy, and live. A wonderful musical journey with one of the most talented and creative guitar players of our time. Buddy Guy is the epitome of blues greats and he is without a doubt the real deal.
