Damn Right I've Got the Blues Review

by Bill Dahl

This Grammy-winning comeback set brought Buddy Guy back to prominence after a long studio hiatus. There are too many clich├ęd cover choices -- "Five Long Years," "Mustang Sally," "Black Night," "There Is Something on Your Mind" -- to earn unreserved recommendation, but Guy's frenetic guitar histrionics ably cut through the superstar-heavy proceedings (Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Mark Knopfler all turn up) on the snarling title cut and a handful of others.
