Blues Icon Buddy Guy To Release "Live At Legends" On December 18th

If you’ve never had the chance to experience the great blues icon Buddy Guy perform live, now is your chance to be enthralled by his musical magic on Live at Legends, set for release on December 18th by Silvertone/RCA Records. The iTunes pre-order will be available on Tuesday, December 4th.  

Live at Legends features Guy’s last live recordings from his now-shuttered original Legends blues club in Chicago, captured during his January residency there in 2010.  The album features a number of Buddy Guy live favorites including two amazing medleys: John Lee Hooker’s “Boom Boom” into Cream’s “Strange Brew;” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child” into Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love.” In addition to the live recordings, Live at Legends includes 3 previously unreleased studio recordings from Guy’s critically acclaimed Living Proof album sessions: “Polka Dot Love,” “Coming For You,” and “Country Boy.”

The recipient of over 30 awards and accolades, Guy was recently selected to receive this year’s Kennedy Center Honors alongside Dustin Hoffman, David Letterman, Natalia Makarova and Led Zeppelin.  The 35th annual ceremony will be televised on December 26th at 9:00 PM on CBS.

In a career that spans nearly 50 years with over 50 albums released, the illustrious Buddy Guy has received 28 Blues Music Awards (formerly W. C. Handy Awards), 6 Grammy Awards, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the first annual Great Performer of Illinois Award, a Billboard Music Awards’ Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement and the Presidential National Medal of Arts.
