Bonamassa-Dust Bowl

Has anybody else been listening to this?

Maybe his best work yet. Along with John Henry.

Carmine Rojas on bass is not too shabby either.

It combines the gritty, blues-based tones of Bonamassa’s first albums with the fluid, genre-defying sounds he’s mastered in the years since and adds a dash of country from Joe’s collaborations with the best of Nashville including legends Vince Gill and John Hiatt.


Now your talking my language. Dust Bowl tune is pretty cool. Thanks, don't have any of his stuff....will open my ears.

Vintage Fender basses and 70's SVT's that about sums it up for me.

He was always a great guitarist, but his songwriting and singing have really come on.
Check out: Ballad of John Henry from cd of same name and from the new one;

Meaning of the blues
Slow train and
The Last Matador of Bayonne a great power ballad.

I've been listening to it since it came out, Joe is one of my favorites of the young guns. He's a smart cat, hooked in with a good producer [Kevin Shirley] who brings the songwriter in him out, something a lot of blues cats don't explore. Having Rojas there is a bonus, you can tell why this guy is such a in demand pro, I don't think there is a wasted bass note on the whole album, great playing for the song!
