2 Disc CD + DVD Set. Tne night. One shot. No safety net. If there was pressure afoot as Joanne Shaw Taylor walked onstage at The Borderline on May 12th, 2013, then the bandleader used it as rocket-fuel, channeling the vibe into the set of her life. Now, six months later, that explosive performance is captured on 'Songs From The Road' - a live album with the soul power to jostle the greats off the podium. "I'm really pleased with it," says Joanne. "It's everything I wanted it to be." As the latest release in Ruf Records' legendary Songs From The Road series, this CD/DVD set is the live album you've been screaming for. "The timing is good," agrees Joanne. "My fans, and especially the blues fans, have been asking me for a live album for a while now. I'm glad that we waited, and didn't do it two years ago, because hopefully I've improved. We've done three studio albums now, so I think the live album ties all the albums together." A seasoned road-warrior since 2009's debut album 'White Sugar', Joanne has nothing to fear from the stage, but the demands of her diary meant Songs From The Road presented a logistical challenge. "We only had one chance to do it because of my schedule," she reflects. "If I'd have played terribly - which fortunately I don't think I did - it would have been unusable. It worked out really well, and I think a big part of that is because the fans were so good. "We wanted to do it in London," Joanne continues, "and the reason for picking The Borderline was because I wanted something small and intimate. I grew up being inspired by those small Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert Collins club gigs, and I wanted to have that same 'everyone-packed-in-like-sardines' vibe - as opposed to a big production and losing some of that intimacy."

I found this to be just another run-of-the-mill rock/blues album and really nothing special. All the tracks frankly sounded the same. Read morePublished 8 months ago by MR E Inc

Always worth a listen but live is so much better. This album does a good job of capturing the freshness of JST's live shows, a great selection of songs, blistering solos and a real... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Terry
