After two wonderful collaborative studio albums, the powerful, soulful voice of Beth Hart and the blistering guitar talents of Joe Bonamassa come together for a double live album, recorded at the Koninklijk Theater Carre, Amsterdam, over two nights in June 2013. Much of the material here is live interpretations of songs harvested from their two studio albums of powerful jazz, blues and soul covers, with a few additions to keep it fresh. As is Joe and Beth's philosophy, everything you hear on this live album is exactly that, live, with no overdubs or backing tracks, something that, as Joe points out in the liner notes, is becoming increasingly rare for large shows in this day and age. Unlike some live albums, the audience noise is minimal and, although you can certainly tell that it is live by the acoustics and rawness of the sound, the sound quality really is superb.

Joe and Beth work together brilliantly, they have a truly respectful and electrifying partnership, with Beth's phenomenal voice being given the space to take to limelight and Joe complimenting her with just the right amount of licks and fills, only opening up and demonstrating his world class guitar skills (and, boy, are they incredible) when it wouldn't take centre stage away from Ms. Hart. Add to that mix an excellent backing band and a tasteful horn section and you have a live show so good, you envy those who were able to be there. “Them There Eyes” provides a playful, light start, but as soon as the gritty strains of “Sinner's Prayer” strike up, the audience start to get what they've paid for; this is a perfect example of Hart and Bonamassa at their collaborative best.

Simply superb. Beth Hart is the most phenomenal rock singer of today. Quite unbelievable she appears to be almost unknown in the UK.. She has such a full, touching, extraordinary voice, play track " I'd rather go blind " together with the unbelievably accomplished guitarist Joe Bonamassa, it is simply outstanding.. Their coming together on tour and on this album will go down as legendary and for those lucky to have seen them, unforgetable. A MUST.

Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa have, to date, produced two exceptional studio albums together. And now, for your delectation, offer a double CD recorded over a couple of nights in Amsterdam to include pretty much everything that was on the studio albums! But, does it trump the studio recordings (as indeed, it simply should!) ?? Well, the jury has to be out on that because while it is "live", it doesn't really come across as such - indeed when I had the opening track on in the car for the first time, it was just coming to the end when I missed the moment and, realising that I was into track 2, flicked back to hear that the first track was clipped at the end to remove the audience reaction....which, to me, defies the very reason for calling an album "live" because, as I've said so many times before, "a live one is next only to being there on the night!"
And then, strangely, most of the other tracks have been dealt with in a similar way, thus making the whole experience a might clinical!
Don't get me wrong, I know that there are plenty of people out there who don't want to hear applause, hoops and hollers, or God forbid, audience participation, but that is precisely what you get when you attend a live event, therefore to remove the audience from this recording seems to me to miss the point. However, the music certainly does more than match up and while both Beth and Joe prove just what masters of their craft they are, the rest of the band also prove just what a great set of musicians that they are too by ably accompanying the two featured artists to the max - brilliant, no less - but would you expect anything else?

This is pretty much as good as guitar playing and singing gets. Picture Eric Clapton, Gary Moore and Jeff Beck playing alongside Etta James and Janis Joplin. What you're imagining isn't far off what you'll hear on this album. Quite a claim I know, but simply put, this album is a showcase of soulful music and superb musicianship; a recording with the rawness and immediacy of a bygone age.

If you have any interest in blues or soul music, you need to hear this.

Having recorded two albums comprising of cover versions of classic songs (Seesaw and Don't Explain), Live In Amsterdam finds Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa in fine form, laying down cracking live versions of most of the tracks featured on the albums.

Ray Charles, Tom Waits, Bill Withers, Billie Holliday, Louis Armstrong, Al Kooper, Etta James and Aretha Franklin are some of the artists whose originally made these songs famous. Some of the tracks are well known, others obscure - but all allow Hart and Bonamassa plenty of room to make their mark.

From Hart's powerful vocals to Bonamassa's blistering solos there's a lot to enjoy here. Backed by the same band that featured on the records and augmented by a horn section, Live In Amsterdam is certainly an album that packs a punch. It's a slight shame that each track fades out, as this does disrupt the listening flow a little - but this is only a minor niggle. Recommended.
