One thing is certain, he's not the Buddy Guy we knew before. Doing Mississippi Hill Country blues on "Sweet Tea" proved to be less than his best, and with Blues Singer he strips back for an acoustic set that could get tedious after a few spins even though B. King, Eric Clapton, and James Mathus guest. This Shake Em Down - Various - Heroes Of The Blues Sampler - From The Six Series Heroes Of The Blues (CD) isn't Buddy's worst, but it's not even close to his heroic West Side efforts of tha late s.
