Buddy Guy — Live: The Real Deal (1996)

buddy guy the real dealBy Scott Goldfine

Veteran blues singer/guitarist Buddy Guy is caught in the act on the sizzling “Live: The Real Deal.” Recorded last year with G.E. Smith & the Saturday Night Live Band in Guy’s hometown of Chicago, this disc trims the fat from the living legend’s show, resulting in a lean, mean tour de force.

His recent albums and Grammys place Guy with John Lee Hooker and B.B. King as the greatest living bluesmen.
