Buddy Guy- The Dollar Done Fell
A few years before he was reconfigured into his current incarnation as a legendary "bloozeman," Buddy Guy made several tough recordings for the British JSP label. They're not life-chaning documents on the level of Hoodoo Man Blues, but they're essential for anyone wanting to know the man's whole story. This set, which includes the harrowing live 1979 session featured here, is the handiest way to go.
The triple bill of The Hold Steady, Art Brut and 1990s is surely one of the most inspired I've witnessed. My review of last night's event is here.
New local post-screamo supergroup Paper Cities sounds stupefying. I can't wait to see them.
