You may have heard a familiar voice shining, as usual, on the most recent release by Buddy Guy, produced by Tom Hambridge. Wendy’s powerful vocals are featured on the tracks “Justifyin'” and “Whiskey Ghost.” The album has been wildly successful and is the third Buddy Guy project that Wendy has been involved in.
Buddy Guy, “Rhythm & Blues” (No. 27): 77-year-old blues legend Buddy Guy nets his highest charting album ever on the Billboard 200, as “Rhythm & Blues” debuts at No. 27 with 11,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. On Blues Albums, it marks Guy’s fourth No. 1.
The double-album includes an array of bold-faced guests including Keith Urban, Kid Rock, Beth Hart, Gary Clark, Jr. and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford.
“Rhythm & Blues” also gives Guy his best sales week since SoundScan launched in 1991. His previous high came with his last set, 2010’s “Living Proof” (9,000; No. 46 debut and peak). In fact, his last four studio albums have also started with a larger debut week than the previous, starting with 2005’s “Bring ‘Em In” (7,000; No. 152) and continuing with 2008’s “Skin Deep” (just under 9,000; No. 68) and “Living Proof.” (Billboard Magazine)
