Music today was Sweet Dreams: The Anthology (1992) by Roy Buchanan, one of the great Blues players whose tone and touch was inimitable. He played a Fender Telecaster and it sang. If you don’t know who he is, he also played on The Stones’ album Black and Blue (1975) and was called “the Best Unknown Guitarist in the world”. This album is for fans as it has live, rare, and best of tracks but new investigators should go for his self-titled album (1972), Second Album (1973) and That’s What I’m Here For (1973). Buchanan died at age 48 after being arrested over a domestic dispute and was found the next morning hanging from his own shirt in his cell, his death was classed as suicide and the conclusion has been disputed.
