American blues musician Buddy Guy is an exponent of Chicago blues and influenced many prominent guitarists, including Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Eric Clapton, and John Mayer. His 1998 album Heavy Love is another one of his fine blues-rock records. Besides two songs of his own material, he's covering classics from Willie Dixon (“I Just Want to Make Love to You"). Tony Joe White ("Did Somebody Make a Fool Out of You"), ZZ Top ("I need you tonight"), and many more. It is more heavy compared to many of his other recordings, but he still finds his way back to the blues.
Heavy Love is available on vinyl for the first time.
