I want to get a CD that really shows the outrageous lines that Greg plays behind Buddy. The ones that BMG offers are:
Blues Singer, Sweet Tea, Best Of-Millenium-2001, Buddy's Baddest-1999, Heavy Love-1998, and Damn Right-I've Got The Blues-1991.
Any suggestions?

I wouldn't know which ones to get, but I'm eager to read everybody elses' responses. Outrageous is a good word to describe some of those lines. A friend turned me on to some Buddy Guy a couple of years ago, and it's awesome stuff. Extremely inspirational in the bass department. I'm sure BG playing in the ipod will keep you warm on the walk to work...

I got the chance to see Buddy in Dublin in I think 1998. It was an outdoor gig. The whole thing was fantastic, and the basslines were incredible! At the time, I was playing mostly guitar, and did not fully appreciate the basslines until a year or so later. Even though I was there, I feel that I missed a great opportunity by not appreciating what I was hearing!

Michael, the BG gig that really stands out in my mind was an outdoor gig I saw on TV. I had never before heard blues backed up by bass lines like Greg was playing. It was amazing.
John, you're right. I have been walking to work lately. However, I don't dare listen to music while I'm walking. With the dogs at large and drivers with cell phones or beer cans attached to their heads I would be taking my life into my own hands. I'm too young to die!!!
