Blues Travel Lore
By Blues travel lore
Joe Bonamassa - Ambassador for the blues ; not only does does he eat ,sleep, plays the blues - he embodies the blues . JB is a great song writer himself ; but also chooses great material to cover ; in his capable hands he does a great homage to Gary Moores " Midnight Blues " . In working with others he is also a great side man while sharing his stage and then re-emerging as the star he is .................Always a good listen from " Smoking Joe " .
Joe Bonnomassa is a legend
This man has kept the blues alive. Joe Bonnomassa is my hero of the blues.
Listen. Transcend. Repeat.
Every time I listen I hear something new: honey.thunder.trill&grit. And Beth Hart is just delicious.
What A Shame!

Could have been such a great album if the recording producer knew what he was doing.
I don't believe I have EVER known an artist who actually plays better LIVE than in the studio!! I have more of JB's live albums than the studio ones.....this one will show you why!
My uncle turned me on to this album knowing that I am a huge guitar fan. Joe's mix of classy blues and great technique are stunning. The duets with Hiatt, Hart & Rodger's are killer! Hiatt's "Down around my place" is a fav....
The best live set I've ever heard
Favorite blues album in my library. Best live album I know of. In any genre. The cuts with guests (Beth Hart, Paul Rodgers, and John Hiatt, 2-tracks apiece) are also really good. Tal Bergman puts in some really sick drum work (check out Blue and Evil, Young Boy Blues, Midnight Blues, and Dust Bowl).
Don't be scared of the price, download the whole album, but the best songs are:
1) Slow Train
2) Dust Bowl
3)Blue and Evil
4) Mountain Time
5)Young Boy Blues
Joe Bonamassa live from beacon New York
Wow this Is Blues Rock energy 21st century! I stumbled upon this super talent and best Blues guitarist just recently? Where have I been!
Just bought tickets foR Seattle 2013!
This carries on gritty tones and sings well.. Buddy Guy and Clapton love this guy too! love it
not that great
if you like your blues loud with lousy vocals then i guess it's all right. got to give it to beth hart though, the lady can sing!

I was channel surfing and came across this concert on PBS one day. I instantly turned into a fan. This cd is amazing and I will soon own Joes whole catalog.
