Notes and Comments:
  • Rating: ****, Length: 45 min
  • A fair audience recording. Great to hear Buddy introduce Stevie as "my best friend, Stevie Ray Vaughan."
  • Way above average and that it is a must have if you are both an SRV and Buddy Guy fan...one of the top five to get. Sound quality is very good. Sound quality, tracklist etc.
  • Also on: "It's Still Called the Blues" NEITHER of these is an "audience recording." Both are "from the board" and have excellent sound quality. "ISCTB" is about one point better in the audio quality department. The last 3 tracks on "BJ" are not part of the birthday jam, they are SRV from a different venue and date. Without a doubt, these live "Birthday Jam" recordings capture some of Buddy's and Stevie's best moments.
  • ...the first tune is just Buddy and the band, he brings SRV out on the second tune, rarely have I heard sound quality this good on a boot CD, great performance, killer duets with Buddy Guy....nice change from the usual setlists found on most SRV boots...worth the outrageous price they charge for the so-called "imports" (this one cost me $22.50!)...
  • a great record with a very good sound and a lot of wild and freaky guitar work.
