Product Description: Having made the obligatory star-studded blues albums with a generous sampling of his more famous children, Buddy Guy's record company apparently felt secure enough in the guitarist's new-found celebrity to trust him to carry an entire session on his own formidable shoulders. Certainly the elder bluesman's previous two albums were none too shabby. DAMNED RIGHT, I GOT THE BLUES was a best-selling media event, and FEELS LIKE RAIN won a Grammy for "Best Contemporary Blues Album," but SLIPPIN' IN ranks with the best work Guy's ever done. It focuses attention on Guy's soaring, over-driven guitar and quivering vocals. Guy's near-lunatic intensity on "Please Don't Drive Me Away" and Lowell Fulson's "Love Her With A Feeling" should prove instructive to young guitarists who seem to think Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn emerged full-blown from the foam. But Buddy Guy has too much range and sensitivity to simply up and go wild, as on a playful cover of "Shame, Shame, Shame" where he reprises the good time boogie of Jimmy Reed. On "7-11" his tone is sweet and caressing as he forgives (least way, he tries) his baby for going wild, while on his own "Cities Need Help," Guy patiently generates intensity as tender pleadings become bellowing gusts of frustration and rage. And on his poignant rendition of Charles Brown's "Trouble Blues," Guy and the legendary pianist Johnnie Johnson evoke a smoky blue aura of longing and regret.
Recording information: Arlyn Studios, Austin, TX; Chicago recording Company. SLIPPIN' IN won a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
may very well be one of his best all-time cuts. The guitar work seems so connected to his vocals that it sounds like interplay that can only come from the soul. This track rocks! The next track,"7-11" goes in the totally opposite direction as a laid back Blues lament that shows Buddy is equally adept at rocking Blues, or slow burners. The oft covered "Shame,Shame,Shame" is probably my least favorite track on the album,with Buddy seemingly going through the motions vocally, but even this grows on you after a while. From there on the album alternates between slow, soulful Buddy treatments and uptempo Blues rockers. Some songs benefit from the rhythm section provided by the somewhat legendary Double Trouble gang. Johnnie Johnson also gets his moments in the sun on the piano. Buddy seems to click with just about everybody he plays with..as usual.. and his guitar has never sounded more powerful, tender and bluesy on one recording.
Other standout tracks include the Lowell Fulson penned "Love Her With A Feeling" where Buddy shows the great interplay of soft, pleading vocals and tender string picking. "Little-Dab-A-Doo" is a humorous original tune about a man's desire to "get a little" and the famous Fred Flintstone call before the final guitar solo is a humorous touch. "Someone Else Is Steppin' In" is a raucous party tune about two-timing on both ends that uses slightly off-tempo, gang background vocals to give the cut a raw, live feel. This is a staple of many fans and I enjoy it a little more each time I hear it. "Man Of Many Words" is an oldy, but goody with strong drum work by Chris "Whipper" Layton to drive the vocals along during instrument breaks. As usual, Buddy is killer with the guitar work. "Don't Tell Me About The Blues" sounds like a very personal song to Buddy Guy. He obviously has lived the Blues and his vocals are top notch and from deep down. The way he alternates between a slightly crackling falsetto and then, without notice changing to shouting, powerful vocals is a trademark that sets Buddy apart from most of his contemporaries. The finale, "Cities Need Help", is a change of pace Buddy Guy original about The decay of urban America and even family values. This shuffle has great rhythm provided by a piano, snare combination and it cuts loose at the end...a fine ending!
If you love Buddy Guy this album must be included in your collection. If you are looking for a place to start your Buddy Guy collection, look no further. Though it doesn't receive the attention or acclaim of "Damn Right...", it is without question a Blues masterpiece and one of, if not THE, best Buddy Guy albums available. Ok, you can return to the mothership Buddy...just come back once in a while and leave a gem like this one! ~ Amazon Customer”
