Buddy Guy Stone Crazy! on 180g LP
Rolling Stone Calls 1981 Effort "A Fine Blues Record and One of the Year's Most Passionate Albums"
Guy Embraces Amplified, No-Holds-Barred Side of Personality on Blazing, Stripped-Down Album
Live-Wired, Raw-Edged Set Back in Print on Vinyl for First Time in 20 Years
Damn Right, You've Got the Blues! Remastered on 180g Vinyl for the Best Sound It's Ever Enjoyed
Forget purist history for a moment. Ignore the value of traditional covers. Embrace, instead, the livewire potential of modern blues' greatest guitarist embracing the amplified, no-holds-barred electricity and savage vocabulary Jimi Hendrix explored. Imagine, you can, but experience you cannot until you hear this incredible 1981 album by a completely unhinged Buddy Guy.
Yes, this is the one. This is the album that his fans had been waiting for for years, the album that finally captures the raw, out-of-control guitar genius of Guy. This is simply Guy and his own touring band, no studio musicians, no special guests. Just the solid skin-tight backing of brother Phil Guy and one of Chicago's hottest young rhythm sections. The tunes are cut in a studio in France, but they feel just like the last smoky set at the Checkerboard Lounge, Guy's former club in the heart of Chicago's South Side.
Alligator Records' vinyl reissue of the famed wildman's blazing 1981 album Stone Crazy! is a must-own for music lovers everywhere. The effort stands as one of the legendary label's all-time best-selling titles, and one that Rolling Stone said captures Guy "at his frantic and frenzied best with savage guitar and fiery vocals, both a fine blues record and one of the year’s most passionate albums."
Out of print on the vinyl for over 20 years, it has now been remastered and pressed on 180g vinyl. Damn right, you've got the blues!
