An amazing live album from Joe, having seen him live this album perfectly captures his awesome live sound.

If you want an album with mind-blowing solos and bluesy-rock riffs this is the one. Filled with long solos and combinations of different songs any guitarist will be impressed with his talent on guitar, easily one of the best of his generation (IMO). Compared to earlier albums you can see a massive improvement in Joe's vocals aswell.

His live sound sounds so much more impressive than studio recordings, so I would definately recommend this album to anyone just getting into Joe or also existing fans.

Can't wait to see you at The Sage & Royal Albert Hall Joe!

along comes this album and forces me to totally rethink! That this guy is good would be an understatement and that his band rocks needs no further words. But perhaps what amazes me most about this album is just how together it all feels and how lyrical some of the solo pieces are. High spot for me is the double track "India" and "Mountain Time" without any real low spots. And then to finish with a Tull and Yes classic combination - well, this guy has it all. Listen and enjoy - this is guitar playing set at 11!

I have "discovered" Bonamassa with this album and I have been totally impressed and seduced. It is a top mix of rock, acoustic, blues, etc, with good vocals and exceptional guitar that sounds like ... his own style but tinted with Beck (intro to "Django"), Clapton, even BB King at times ... basically all the good influences.
So after getting this I bought all his previous CD's and in the end, this one live album remains my favourite. You could be satisfied with this one only. Great guy, who succeeds in standing out in the overcrowded "blues rock guitar" arena.

The latest CD from the fast rising star that is Joe Bonamassa. I've been following his progress for several years now and have to say how totally heartwarming it is to genuine talent and sheer hard work rewarded in an age of vacuous talent(less) shows & the fast buck. Joe seems to have tapped into an audience that really wants to hear classic rock & blues with a distinct UK flavour; think bands like Free, Cream, The Jeff Beck Group & with the odd tongue-in-cheek musical quotes from progressive bands like Jethro Tull, Yes & even the Beatles! Joe's guitar playing is endlessly inventive, displaying ferocious chops on both acoustic & electric; with a very refreshing lack of Stevie Ray Vaughan influences. As wonderful as SRV undoubtedly was, there was only one SRV & too many modern wannabee guitarists now try to emulate that style- enough already! Unlike many of his contemporaries, Joe has the vocal skills & power to match his guitar playing with artists like BB King & Paul Rogers showing their influences. The CD features much of Joe's set from his marathon 2007 tours, and if you can get to see him live- then you really must. Exemplary sound & production skills from veteran producer Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin/Black Crowes) at the helm- one of the best live recordings I've yet heard with the full dynamic range captured from Joe's crack band. Standout tracks include Woke Up Dreaming for it's explosive acoustic playing & dynamics. 'Django' displays Jeff Beck style lyricisms, and the sheer boogie marathon that is ZZ Top's 'Just got Paid'. As John Mayer says in his also excellent live CD "We just launched into a slow blues & 7000 people in L.A. just went nuts - there is hope after all..." With artists like Joe Bonamassa at last achieving the recognition they deserve- there is hope after all for classic REAL rock music in an increasingly banal scene. Amen!

Live from Nowhere in Particular

The delays to the release of this album only served to heighten the expectation when it finally arrived on the doorstep!
Now, JB has been making fine, fine blues/rock music for many a year but is now only just starting to reap the rewards of some very hard graft indeed, but the constant touring has honed his guitar and vocals and ability to "wow" a crowd to the extent witnessed here! Garnered over several gigs, this wonderful collection of JB favourites is all a music fan could ask for, whether they be a Bonamassa disciple or not. From start to finish, this album delivers, maybe not as manic as his earlier live album but nonetheless, it keeps your attention throughout with rumbling blues, pounding rock and frenetic acoustic when JB declares "Let's have some fun!!" He takes no prisoners.....
Ball Peen Hammer, One Of These Days, Sloe Gin, High Water Everywhere, New Day Yesterday all delivered with verve, style and above all power. Certainly I would have to consider this as being among one of the best Live albums that I own (and I have a lot, collected over 45 years!)
For any newcomer to Joe's music, this is a brilliant starter, for the faithful, I am afraid it's an absolutely "MUST HAVE!"

This album is so damm good its been played almost continously since I got it. I saw Bonamassa on the lat UK tour and have tickets for the next one and this album is such a good reminder of the blazing music from the first tour.
He is on fire on this album with some of the very best of his stuff (and as ever the cracking bits from Zeppelin and Yes. Standout tracks (from a very very good bunch) are 'Just got Paid' , 'Sloe Gin', and 'Bridge to Better Days' - and just listen for the fluid guitar playing on 'Django' - Dave Gilmour has some serious competition - and admirers..
Its the sheer consistency that comes across here - of course he could select from all the recorded tour dates - but this is a great cllection of live (and this is my ultimate yardstick - can he do his stuff live ? ) ,material where the guitar work is sublime, and how his band hammer out a great sound. If you like Blues or Rock or a mixture then this will work for you.
