GUY, BUDDY SWEET TEA -HQ- | Vinyl
Personnel includes: Buddy Guy (vocals, guitar); Jimbo Mathus (guitar); Bobby Whitlock (piano); Davey Faragher (bass); Spam, Sam Carr, Pete Thomas (drums); Craig Krampf (percussion).
Recorded at Sweet Tea Studios, Oxford, Mississippi. Includes liner notes by Andy Schwartz.
SWEET TEA was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
Over the years, blues guitar hero Buddy Guy has embraced everything from Chicago blues to R&B and pop balladry, always retaining his hardcore blues underpinning and fretboard wizardry as touchstones. While SWEET TEA represents a significant stylistic detour for Guy, it's a surprisingly familiar one. Seemingly inspired by the raw, electrified Mississippi blues of Fat Possum recording artists such as R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, Guy presents one of the most impassioned, gritty albums of his career. A couple of musicians from the Fat Possum camp are on board to lend ballast, but the heart of the sound is the titanic fury of Guy's guitar.
The album opens with a low-key solo acoustic tune ("Done Got Old") in the manner of John Lee Hooker, but from there on it's no holds barred, as Guy delivers simple, slashing riffs and leads over pounding, primal rhythms in a Delta-meets-Chicago stew that's transcendently visceral. While blues-rockers like Led Zeppelin and Cream got rich by turbo-charging the riffs of vintage bluesmen like Guy, the guitar wizard turns the tables here by beating them at their own game. The pure, blazing, electric energy on these tracks makes the heaviest efforts of those bygone bands sound like Gerry & the Pacemakers. Kudos to Guy for making such a gutsy album so late in the game.

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.
This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.
These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.
Carbon Removal Process
Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.
For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.
There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.
How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated
The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.
Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:
If primary value isn't available
Weight of the shipment
An average shipment weight
Distance traveled according to the tracking data
Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5
Type of transportation
Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance
To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.
For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.
However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.
Considerations for using the Planet app
Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:
- The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed.
- The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
- Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
- The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
