The early 90´s were very sucessful years fro Buddy Guy. He rleased two of his best albums, “Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues” (1991) and “Feels Like Rain” (1993).
And I have to reduce my collection of audience tapes and so I will offer you this very rare audience tape (recorded by me *smile*).
You´ll hear Buddy Guy … and it´s pure dynamite … and it´s a very good audience tape !
Recorded live at the Terminal 1, Munich/Germany, May 14, 1993
