Buddy GUY - Hold That Plane 1972

Buddy GUY - Hold That Plane 1972
VNP 5315


Beautiful. Brilliant, if not Flawless. It actually doesn't matter at all, because the other album's that accompany this album, A Man & the Blues, This is Buddy Guy-Live, are exceptionally good. Some real rare Buddy Guy renditions of his classics. One of Guy's best works till date. The Complete Vanguard Recording is a must for every blues enthusiast.

Starting with an instrumental jam, Watermelon Man, Guy  lets the sax take over for a while, before ripping off into one of his trademark solos.

He also I'm Ready & Hold That Plane. Another instrumental Come see About Me, is a brilliant slow blues jam.

You should also hear Guy screaming the lyrics to Hello San Fransisco.

This is a terrific album for anyone who loves the blues.
