Roy Buchanan/ Second Album. During the early 1970s Roy Buchanan was feted as the greatest rock guitarist the world had ever known. This superb new CD from Jasmine takes a step back into his early career where he spent many years scuffling as a guitar slinger in numerous bands and doing a substantial amount of session work. Collected across this 44 track, 2 CD set are examples of his dynamic guitar contributions to a bevy of national, regional and downright parochial recording artists including Dale Hawkins, Bob Luman, Freddy Cannon and Danny & The Juniors

Leroy "Roy" Buchanan (September 23, 1939 – August 14, 1988) was an American guitarist and blues musician. A pioneer of the Telecaster sound, Buchanan worked as a sideman and as a solo artist, with two gold albums early in his career and two later solo albums that made it to the Billboard chart. He never achieved stardom, but he is still considered a highly influential guitar player. Guitar Player praised him as having one of the "50 Greatest Tones of All Time.

Roy Buchanan - Roy Buchanan. Aside from his tragic death in a Virginia jail cell in 1988, Roy Buchanan will always be best remembered for his achingly beautiful instrumental version of Sweet Dreams. Kicking off his debut album, the track reminds us how Buchanan transformed Leo Fender’s Telecaster workhorse into a Stradivarius. He gives the guitar an angelic voice with volume control swells, sweet harmonics and sudden bursts of speed. The man’s unique grasp of dynamics continues with a great cover of Merle Haggard’s I’m A Lonesome Fugitive and the Jerry Reedesque instrumental Cajun. The genius of Sharrock, and the reason why this album is so loved, is because you can never predict where he’s going to go next. His distorted lines fire off into tangents that often disorientate the listener. Standout track: Promises Kept.

The Guitar Album is a 1974 double compilation album featuring live performances of popular guitarists. Though it was originally released in the United States it was later reissued in the United Kingdom. Slunky" by Eric Clapton (B. Bramlett/E.

Roy Buchanan (1939-1988) immeasurably altered the evolutionary course of the electric guitar by introducing previously unheard but now commonplace tones and techniques to the instrument’s pantheon using only the simplest tools and a vivid imagination. Perceived by many as an enigma, Buchanan was ultimately a family man who simply didn’t give a hoot about stardom-he just wanted to play the guitar on his own terms. His performances reportedly suffered despite flashes of brilliance, and he released only one album during this period. In 1985 Roy was able to curb his drinking habit and strike a deal with Alligator Records, a Chicago-based blues label that offered Buchanan complete artistic control of his recordings. Roy exercised his newfound freedom by cutting When a Guitar Plays the Blues, Dancing on the Edge, and Hot Wires for the label, and was delighted with the results of this new direction.

This was his first record for Alligator Records. It was recorded and mixed by Justin Niebank, mastered by Tom Coyne and produced by Roy Buchanan, Dick Shurman and Bruce Iglauer. All songs were written by Buchanan. When a Guitar Plays the Blues. When a Guitar Plays the Blues may refer to: When a Guitar Plays the Blues (Roy Buchanan album), 1985. When a Guitar Plays the Blues (Roy Lee Johnson album), 1998.
