"I have to admit that I have a fondness for the explosive side of Buddy Guy. When he's locked and loaded, he is a true weapon of mass destruction. That's why it took me awhile to adjust to the soulful, melodic side of Buddy that this album exhibits so beautifully. He's just reminding us that he can play with style and taste in addition to horsepower. If I have a beef with the album, it's the "and friends" concept that's being beaten to death in the music industry. People like John Mayer, Tracy Chapman and Carlos Santana certainly don't bring shame to an album, I just question why they're needed. I guess maybe as a sales booster but people like Carlos and Buddy should be above that by now. They're certainly earned their stripes in my book."
Leave Buddy Alone!

"They dog Buddy out when he did Sweet Tea saying he was ridin' the Fat Possum Train, and now they say hey Buddy we don't like the guest artitst. Hey Buddy keep doin' what your doin'! This is some great blues, slick licks, and some great guest stars, doing great songs! Yea it may be a bit over produced but hey it is Jive Records. But to flat out call this a dud? Well you would have to be a dud! Go on and buy it you won't regret it!!! The Bandit
Buddy does blow this album away when he is live, but I still feel it's worth the 12 or 13 bucks. I like the reviewer that said if you were a real Buddy Guy fan you would buy the CD without reading the reviews, I agree! I bought it the day it came out I have spun it about 6 times and it grows on me more and more. I just love having a huge collection by Buddy, Freddie, Stevie, BB, Albert and more. IMHO it's not as good as Sweet Tea!!!"
A Living Legend

"This is an excellent addition to anyone's Buddy Guy collection. Most of the songs are rock solid cover versions of great tunes like "Cheaper To Keep Her" and "On A Saturday Night" and the songs with guest artists show off different sides of this Living Legend's enormous talent. Not a bad song in the bunch. My only minor complaint would be that there is only one original composition by Buddy Guy (that explains the 4 rather than 5 stars), but the guitar solos are explosive and the song selection is wonderfully varied."
