The hyperbole about Buddy Rich can get pretty deep. He's commonly referred to as the best drummer ever. This is much like granting Sinatra King of Crooners status - for many this brash supremism is based on a standard of style and sensibility we don't find so pretty. It's like saying the steamroller is the greatest wheeled vehicle of all time. That's true maybe, if what you value most is the ability to flatten things. Buddy Rich was a steamroller and is reputed to have rolled over more than a couple of his bandmembers, but that's neither here nor there.

Jazz Icons : Live In '78 (One performance in Holland, Buddy is slamming with arguably his best band with him). 1982 Montreal Jazz Festival - A Later Buddy band, not as strong, but Buddy sounds great and there are a lot of good close-ups of his playing, not to mention it's been remastered and I think the drums sound great, especially for his Ludwig kit.
