Buddy Guy has enlisted fellow guitar luminaries Eric Clapton, Robert Randolph, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks on his 10th Silvertone studio release, Skin Deep. Elaborating on his inspiration for the album title and title track, Guy touches on a powerful series of personal memories and observations on the ways in which "underneath" we're all the same. "I used to play with this boy, ride horses, down close to where I was born," he says. "Then when we were 13, his parents made us stop. They used to say you had black blood or white blood, but we'd get a flashlight and hold it up to our skin and we'd just see red blood. That's what I mean by 'Skin Deep.'" In a career spanning more than 45 years, Buddy Guy continues to add on to his ever-growing legendary career. At the age of 72, he graced the cover of Rolling Stone, as part of the magazine's recent "100 Greatest Songs" issue (his cataclysmic 1961 recording of "Stone Crazy" made the list) and turned in a show-stopping performance in Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones concert film, Shine A Light. Guy has won five Grammy Awards, 23 W.C. Handy Awards (the most any blues artist has received), a Congressional Medal of Arts and Billboard Magazine's prestigious The Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement.

I was disappointed in the thin sound of the recording. Good quality vinyl has a rich, full sound. This recording is lacking. Buddy Guy deserves better.
