Buddy GUY - Hold That Plane 1972
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.
