Product Description

Amazon.com

New York guitar phenom walks tall in the blues tradition with this third album, jettisoning fiery riffs inspired by John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Elmore James, and Albert Collins into the future with furious playing, a hard-rock sensibility, and a grizzled voice that owes a debt to Gregg Allman. Equally inspired by the Delta blues and the mid-'60s British blues boom, the young firebrand--who titled this CD after a Rod Stewart song penned while in the Jeff Beck Group--is able to fuse those two schools together, creating edgy blues rock. --Jaan Uhelszki

It doesn't happen too often to me to be fascinated and carried away by a new CD at the first listening. Well, it has happened this time! What a master this guy is! And what a milestone in the history of modern blues this CD is already! After two solid blues-rock releases Joe turns straight into the blues and the final result is so amazing that the first reaction a common human being could only have after have been listening to it, it is about half an hour of silence simply because this CD leaves you speechless!
I quite like Joe's first two efforts, however from my point of view this one is much, much better than the previous two. Joe demonstrates beyond any doubts that he is at this moment in time maybe the best guitar player, or in the worst case scenario one of the three bests, alive. It is absolutely pointless to try to work out which one is the best cut on this album, all the 12 "12 bars" songs here are equally good. Joe is able to cover all the spectrum of the blues reinterpreting (be aware not covering) B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, John Lee Hooker and even Robert Johnson with such a great taste and personality that you will not believe to your own ears! He plays slide and acoustic with the same intensity and feeling he usually plays traditional electric guitar and his playing in the three slow blues included here is so wonderful that you can't avoid having shivers going up and down your spine. In my personal opinion this is by far the best electric, guitar driven blues album of at least the last twenty years. I would be really surprised and flabbergasted if he will not have the W.C. Handy Blues Award as best guitarist when time will come. More than highly recommended I would say that Blues Deluxe is simply an essential addition to everyone collection. Much more than 5 stars!

M. Bernocchi's review from Old Windsor is bang on: "Blues Deluxe" is fantastic! That the title track is an old Rod Stewart tune from back when he mattered makes the British review all the more tasty. And about that track: in the midst of an album packed wall-to-wall with excellence, Bonamassa's guitar work in "Blues Deluxe" takes the back seat to no player. When you hit the 4 minute mark, your hair will light on fire and your synapses will melt as Joe explodes into incendiary brilliance. Be careful if you play it in your car. Hide the children if you crank it up at home. Joe Bonamassa now has a chair at the table of the masters and that smile in your soul is testiment to his excellence.

"Blues Deluxe," the new CD from Joe Bonamassa, is promoted as his first 'official' blues CD. His former discs "So, It's Like That" and "A New Day Yesterday" are more classic rock (with a blues influence).
I came across this disc at a listening station in Barnes And Noble - and was immediately taken in by a rousing rendition of BB King's "You Upset Me Baby" followed by a foot-stompin' rendition of John Lee Hooker's "Burning Hell." You could immediately tell that Joe Bonamassa was not here to pay tribute to the blues, he was here to bring it to a new level.
This is not entirely a covers disc, "Woke Up Dreaming" is a blistering acoustic track (yes blistering -- the guitar is almost set on fire in the intro), and "I Don't Live Anywhere" is a dreamy-heartfelt ballad that shows Bonamassa can write with the best of them.
It is here where I can say this CD is a great listening experience. The song where Bonamassa brings "Blues Deluxe" to level above great, is in fact, the title track (a cover of the great Jeff Beck). The solo in this song is comparable to some of the best of the best (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton). The raw emotion that filters through the guitar solo is enough to channel into anyone's soul, and make them nod in appreciation for what has been 'said'. I, in fact, am one of those souls.

After recording two successful solo albums, mixing influences of classic rock and blues, Joe Bonamassa has released his first full-blooded blues album, Blues Deluxe on August 26, 2003 which marks his contribution to "The Year of the Blues". This CD is totally made up of Joe paying homage to The Blues Legends, never mind what CD is the best of 2003, this one reaches into your all time list and knowing that it was recorded in just 8 days is way to scary to even think about what this guy is capable of!

To be honest there are some great new blues/rock CD's that have come out this year, and I know of at least 3 or 4 others that I highly recommend as a must buy for 2003, but if you don't buy Joe Bonamassa's new CD, I promise you will live to regret it! After the first spin of this disc I was totally speechless, a total loss of words! I don't even know where to start describing the overwhelming sense of AWE that came over me, I mean the hair on the back of my neck literally stood on end about half way through the title cut Blues Deluxe! I knew this cat was good but is it really possible that he has gotten that much better? Damn right he has! From this day forth anytime the name Joe Bonamassa is spoken it should be followed immediately by these two words "GUITAR GOD" because they only people I have ever heard play like this is Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I have heard people flirt with music like this and become "GUITAR GREATS" but to just flat out kick it in the ass like this not only puts this cat in the category of the elite, but cements his place in guitar history! It's so very exciting to witness greatness like this in the making! Joe Bonamassa has perfect control over his instrument, it's like he will's it to speak to you without any effort at all.

Joe Bonamassa - Where to start
Blues Deluxe is a great place to start for more traditional Blues, but if you want more blues/rock check out Driving Towards The Daylight, A Different Shade Of Blue, and Dustbowl. If he likes rock check out Joe's side project Black Country Communion.
