I consider this a must have CD for serious Buddy Guy fans. Although the songs featured are very similar to another Buddy Guy must have, “Collected” (no longer being produced), these are all different takes. While some cuts on “Breaking Out” are more raw than the cuts found on “Collected”, some are a little more smooth. Similar to several cuts on “Collected”, many of the cuts on “Breaking Out” are characterized by Buddy Guy’s amazing control of overdriven guitar amp distortion, a style that I particularly enjoy. I have greatly enjoyed comparing cuts from “Breaking Out” and “Collected.” I have seen Buddy Guy four times in concert over the past 8 years, and I can say that the cuts on “Breaking Out” (as well as “Collected”) reveal more of his incredible talent than some of his more recent album/CD releases (although I also remain a huge fan of these recent releases – Buddy Guy has a nearly unlimited variety of styles, and he plays each at virtuoso level). Of the 15+ Buddy Guy CD’s and several DVD recordings of various and eclectic live performances, “Breaking Out” is a must have for any serious Buddy Guy fan (as is “Collected”). As a bonus (in my eyes), note that the last few cuts on “Breaking Out” feature Buddy’s brother, Phil Guy, who is nearly as amazing as Buddy on the guitar and as good as any blues musician with his vocals (other than Buddy, of course). You can’t go wrong with this CD! (Note that this CD has been around for some time now although it is now being sold in Digipack form.) ~Review by Danny Ray Camp Jr.
