Breaking Out is the fifth studio album by Buddy Guy. It was released in 1980 on JSP Records.

Recordings[edit]

The original album tracks were recorded at Sound Station, Chicago, IL, in September 1980 with studio session musicians. They were recorded two more tracks on that session. "Feeling Sexy" and "Funk Is The Skunk" were originally released on another JSP LP, simply titled "Buddy & Philip Guy" in 1981.[2]

CD releaseses[edit]

It was released on CD first on JSP at the end of 80s with a bonus track ("Feeling Sexy" was recorded on that same session), but alternate cover. The 1996 CD release includes 2 alternate bonus tracks, which were recorded on another session, at Soto Sound Studios, Evanston, IL in 1981. The 2008 CD release includes 3 more bonus tracks from the Soto Sound sessions. These five tracks previously released on Phil Guy's albums, "The Red Hot Blues of Phil Guy" (1982) and "Bad Luck Boy" (1983). All of the CD releases have alternate covers.[3]
