Sweet Tea

Back at you here with this swampy, mosquito-flecked psych blues record from the mighty Buddy Guy. Eschewing the slick production and smooth professionalism that marks most of his career, Buddy strips his band down to a bare minimum and grinds his guitar in the dirt. Heavily influenced by the Hill Country blues of R.L. Burnside, T-Model Ford and Junior Kimbrough, this wild and entrancing album stands out in Buddy's discography like a mutant step-child locked in the attic, banging on the walls and shouting.
