The album itself follows the best of Buddy’s worlds with great electric energy of Chicago and soft soothing acoustic that comes straight from the Delta. Listening to “Come Back Muddy” most vividly takes you away to the fifties when Muddy Waters invented electricity and showed the Blues to the world. The song keeps your mind back and paints a portrait of music history unfolding.
Tribute to the late B.B. King (Flesh & Bone) is another soft and soothing piece of art, that gives you a strong feeling of appreciation like “Skin Deep” did in the past, like “All That Makes Me Happy is The Blues” and “Stay a Little Longer” did before.
Born To Play Guitar did what all other BG albums succeeded at, it took your mind off your own Blues by taking you for a ride in that ol’ flashy Cadillac. Thank you Buddy. Everyone else – stfu and go buy it now.
