5.0 out of 5 stars Bonamassa Again 28 Jan 2013
By Glenn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Joe's no slouch - that is self-evident with his regular releases, guest appearances and live performances - but what impresses above and beyond this is the sustained quality of what he does. The instrumentals on this album will rock your funky socks off, or as with fifth track 'We Want Grooves', simply soothe and soothe and soothe. It is almost unbearable, the precocious talent Bonamassa exudes [he is such a key player here]. Recorded live over ten funked-out, 70s/80s time-warped days, the collective also features Tal Bergman [drums and production and great opening solo on 'Animal Work'], Ron DeJesus [guitar], Mike Merritt [bass], and Renato Neto [exquisite keyboards]. Put on your shiny suit, push the sleeves up to just below the elbows, and funk the candy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well, it's different! 26 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like many of the other reviewers I have always rated Joe's playing and choice of material highly. This time I have found it very difficult assess. Firstly, I am sure that the playing and general musicianship of all those involved on this CD is top notch however they are playing material which is in a 70's funk style - a style I do not like. Having played the CD at home it did nothing for me. I have since played it in the car where I was a captive audience for an hour or so but with the same results. I cannot even think of anyone to give it to.

I do not think that Joe shines very well with his playing as it is not particularly the dominant instrument. I thought that the bass playing, where it was the dominant was interesting and the drumming was crisp and quite inventive considering the style of music. The main sound seems to be produced by keys of some sort.

I don't like giving this only 2 stars as it is obviously not the style of music for me and therefore I am perhaps unqualified to judge it. I prefer Joe playing with any of his other rock/blues bands showing me what a virtuoso he really is on his chosen instrument.

5.0 out of 5 stars We want groove 7 May 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
A rare piece of new music that takes you back to the seventies and Jeff Beck 'Starcycle' style of music. If you only like Bonomassa blues stuff you may want to check it out first before buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album 20 April 2013
By D. Daly
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Great album and the vinyl sounds really nice as well. Its 2 heavy grade LPs that have plenty of bass and good fidelity sounds. If you like 70's jazz-funk-groove then you'll enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeeeeah! 30 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes! This album is just what I have been waiting for. For years I've wanted to make a retro 70's porno, but there has been a paucity of new music to provide the soundtrack. Thankfully, now I have this album, I can grow my moustache, go out and buy some brown corduroy flares and cast the buxom, permed leading lady. I have my old camcorder, I've hidden all the lady shaves and I think we're all ready to go! With the exception of the track with the drum solo (Animal/Work), which would probably confuse and frighten the "actors", there is a great mix of funky sounds, schmoozy grooves and classy instrumental lounge cuts, perfect for every "getting it on" mood. I'm thinking we should probably avoid the schoolgirl scenario, given the current public mood, but the bored housewife/plumber scenario is always a classic. What do you think?

This is an excellent album, by the way. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all 28 Jan 2013
By Peter
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We all know that Joe can do Blues pretty well,as well as Blues Rock with Black Country Communion. Now he's shown us another string to his multi-talented bow: jazz/blues/funk just like John Mayall did back in 1972. I recommend you watch the DVD first, as it gives you a feel for the music as well as explaining the concept behind the album.Lock 5 massive musical egos in a studio for a few days, let them jam, and see what comes out.It could be a flop, but the chemistry between them makes it a massive success.As Joe puts it, it's a throwback to the 70's (Think Isaac Hayes/ Shaft ).
The band comprises Joe and Ron DeJesus on guitars,Renato Neto on keyboards,Mike Merritt on bass, and Tal Bergman on drums,who also produces the CD and DVD. The DVD also includes the Official Music video of the opening track.The DVD has a very amateur feel to it, which adds to it's appeal.
The C.D comprises 9 instrumental tracks, all between 6 and 10 minutes long.I recommend you listen to it on headphones to appreciate it in it's full multi-textural glory. The first two tracks come out all guns blazing,then the next track pulls the tempo right down,starting with an ethereal space-traveller mood,which develops into another jam.The title track gives everyone a chance to shine.It's the sort of track which could be indefinitely extended in a live gig.Track 5 starts reflectively before establishing a repetitive bass riff over which everyone gets a chance.This would be ideal to de-stress after a bad day at work. Track 6 (Animal/Work) is the drummer's spotlight (Animal=Muppet drummer),with some excellent guitar work from Joe.Track 7 can best be described as a guitar-duel between Joe and Ron. Track 8 is very Isaac Hayes influenced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great funk record 30 May 2014

This is a great vinyl record. It is nicely pressed on 2 LPs, and sounds great, really punchy and crisp. The funky grooves sound great on vinyl.

Fabulous album from a collection of great musicians who don't need to do this for the money - obviously a lot of respect for the music and some great playing.
