    • "Seems like this guitar is the only place I find the truth."So sings Buddy Guy on “All That Makes Me Happy Is the Blues,” one of the many highlights of the more-or-less autobiographical journey that is his new double-disc album, Rhythm and Blues (due out July 30).The guitar in question is his trusty Buddy Guy ’89 Fender Custom Strat, the black with white polka-dots camouflaged by his matching shirt, his long-time sartorial trademark, as seen on the album cover photo, giving the impression that the axe is part of his body. As it pretty much is. The sounds he gets from it are also an extension of his persona, the unmistakable sting n’ sing of his leads that, more than anything else, mark these 21 songs. More than any genre labels. More than any guest stars, and there are a bunch: Kid Rock; Keith Urban; Beth Hart; Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford and young Texas hotshot Gary Clark Jr. It’s the thread through his career, from his classic, innovative recordings with blues harp maestro Junior Wells through stadium bills with the Rolling Stones through a couple of post-Millennial albums taking him back to his Delta roots.
