Release Notes

Save for a cover of Muddy Waters' "Country Boy," Buddy Guy's Living Proof follows the template of 2008's Skin Deep by featuring only original material penned by Guy, although never fear, it's still the blues and it's still full of Guy's fiery guitar playing.

Reviews

Down Beat (p.75) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Guy is a deeply expressive singer, most in character when his aggressive pout torches lyrics about spurned lovers, as with 'Don't Let The Door Knob Hit Ya.'"<BR>Living Blues (p.37) - "[H]e's still got the chops to play Buddy Guy with more dexterity, intensity, and age-defying power than anyone else..."<BR>Billboard (p.36) - "He plays and sings with biting ferocity on 'Thank Me Someday,' 'Key Don't Fit,' 'Guess What' and the album-closing instrumental 'Skanky'..."<BR>Mojo (Publisher) (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here is no nostalgia about 'Living Proof,' 'Guess What' or the instrumental 'Skanky,' where his guitar flashes like a Japanese chef's knife."<BR>Uncut (magazine) (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "There are lots of marital bust-ups and squalls of fretboard fury that show that Buddy may be old but he's still wild."
