Best Buddy Rich Album? Thread starter bluesmandan. Start date May 15, 2012. Buddy's drums are cranked and he's blazing on this album. Buddy And Soul (1969) - Another live album with more rock tunes in BR's style. The swing charts that are on this album really show how good he and his band really had to be - the tempos and charts aren't easy to play and they burn them in this set - everything is flying on this album, probably to impress the more rock-biased crowd at this venue.
