5.0 out of 5 stars Beth and Joe have got the blues, 24 Mar 2014
This review is from: Live In Amsterdam (Audio CD)
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Bill Withers, Billie Holliday, Louis Armstrong, Al Kooper, Etta James and Aretha Franklin are some of the artists whose originally made these songs famous.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.
