“WHEN A GUITAR PLAYS THE BLUES” is one of Roy Buchanan‘s finest studio dates released on Alligator Records in 1985.
A hand picked group of Chicago blues musicians–including and the irrepressible Otis Clay keep things at a high simmer. As always though, it is Buchanan’s virtuosity that burns most brightly.
