Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
Cut during a period when Buddy Guy was rarely recorded, this blustery and breathtaking live set is full of idiosyncratic solos that dart after virtually any musical urge that strikes him. Such unpredictable improvisational impulses are more familiar to jazz than blues, but along with his whisper-to-scream singing, that's what makes Guy commanding onstage. His fevered take on the standard "Outskirts of Town" is outright incendiary. This album was originally released on Isabel, a French label named--at the singer-guitarist's insistence--after his late mother, who never had a chance to see her son perform. --Ted Drozdowski

Didn't like this very much at all. Probably just not my style.

Buddy Guy Doing What He Does Best - Improvising to the Max!
Danny Ray Camp, Jr. | Bostic, NC USA | 02/12/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Make no mistake about it: this CD demonstrates Buddy Guy's amazing talent for improvisation. Nothing soft about this CD - it is hard felt blues at Buddy Guy's best. I consider myself a full-fledged, hard-core Buddy Guy fanatic. While I consider this CD a must for any serious Buddy Guy fan, you may want to start with some of his other stuff and work your way up to this if you are not very familiar with Guy. By all means, Buddy is not playing to a mass-market crowd in this CD; and that is the strength of "Stone Crazy!"."
