Tough Chicago Blues by a Master
You gotta play it hard.That was Phil Guy's advice to a sideman who wasn't giving hundred percent. Musically raised in front of critical, knowing crowds on Chicago's Southside, 'hard' was the only way Phil knew. And that didn't just mean loud and flashy - although he could do plenty of that - it meant loud or soft, subtle or slamming you give it all you've got - every time.This is rare evidence of a great bluesman giving his all.As Buddy Guy's brother he'd had one of the most rigorous blues apprenticeships possible - having a Louisiana upbringing before moving to Chicago and joining in Buddy's band where he played for some years. Although a gifted bluesman in his own right, he was always unfairly in his brother's shadow. How unfair can be seen here.Blues Archive was founded in 1994 by Paul Reed - BBC Documentary Film Cameraman, Bob Webber - Television Sound Recordist and Amanda Palmer - Sociologist, University of Oxford and is now a contemporary archive of blues interviews and performances.
