5.0 out of 5 stars An essential blues/soul album, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live In Amsterdam (Audio CD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great with coffee, 13 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The box states it was developed with coffee in mind and indeed it works very well in this context, with no nasty after-taste or "gas" like some sweeteners can give. I don't think I'd be able to tell it from a cup with sugar in to be honest.

Dvd ~ Joe Bonamassa

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy blues, 27 Dec 2013
This DVD showcases a very classy performance from Joe. His guitar work is, as ever, sublime. He demonstrates some very mature playing - it never feels overplayed but at the same time there is plenty of speed and doesn't come across as restrained.

In the past, my only criticism of Joe has been that for some songs he tends to fall back on more or less the same solos, which is understandable but doesn't do justice to his immense skill and range on the guitar. Hence I was very pleased to see him explore different solos on several songs here; in particular, "lonesome road blues" is full of incredible licks and phrasing. It's hard to pick a favourite performance - but "Asking around for you" really is awesome - think BB King, but on acid!

Mention must also be made of the superb band. The rhythm boys are rock-steady throughout, the horn section really add to the songs and on the keys, Arlan Schierbaum's solos manage to match Joe's.

On a production note, the sound and picture quality are superb and the DVDs come well presented with a decent little booklet of images and info.

These headphones are great value for money; they provide reasonable sound and build quality and crucially they stay put whilst running.
