Editorial Reviews

2011 release from the American Blues guitarist and singer/songwriter, winner of Billboard Magazine's #1 Blues Artist Of 2010 award. Dust Bowl combines the gritty, blues-based tones of Bonamassa's first albums with the fluid, genre-defying sounds he's mastered in the years since, plus a dose of Nashville in duets with legends John Hiatt and Vince Gill. Dust Bowl, producer Kevin Shirley explains, is very firmly rooted in the Blues, but definitely explores the outer reaches of the genre and showcases Joe's amazing virtuosity as he digs deep into his psyche in some lengthy and blistering guitar solos.

Customer Reviews

A must buy CD for all of his fans.
Stephen W. Smith
It's good music and sometimes I have to be more exposed to certain cd's to really love them and I hope this one is like that.
Bluesman
This is another very good album from him, chock full of good songs and great guitar work.

Joe Bonamassa is nothing if not old-school, releasing an album a year since 2000 despite touring relentlessly. That's a refreshing change from the modern norm of artists going years between releases/tours. "Dust Bowl" is the latest in Joe's increasingly-impressive catalog.

The album opens with "Slow Train," an original that features a clever instrumental intro mimicking the start-up of a steam engine, a blistering solo, and an arresting vocal. "Dust Bowl," another original, is a twang-and-tremolo treat with a vocal reminiscent of "Book of Dreams"-era Steve Miller and a spooky spoken-word voice-over by Peter Van Weelden, Joe's current favorite amp guru. The rollicking "Tennessee Plates" features a rocking duet (both vocal and instrumental) with John Hiatt. Next up is a cover of the Bobby Troup/Leah Worth jazz classic "The Meaning of the Blues," with some more of Joe's tasty soloing; definitely not the Miles Davis version! "Black Lung Heartache" is another original that deftly blends some unusual stringed instruments with a crunchy rock riff. "You Better Watch Yourself," an old Little Walter hit, is meat-and-potatoes blues-rock that gives the wah pedal a workout. "The Last Matador of Bayonne," another original, slows the pace but features a soaring solo in Joe's trademark style. Joe's Black Country Communion bandmate Glenn Hughes joins in for a duet on the Paul Rodgers/Free classic "Heartbreaker," and their affection for the material comes across in a fine performance. Another cover, of the Tim Curry/Michael Kamen grinder "No Love On the Street," keeps the classic blues-rock vibe going and features guests Beth Hurt and Blondie Chaplin.

I have only been a Bonamassa fan for a couple of years now.... when I first heard him I was impressed with his versatility as a guitar player. He covered tha gamit of rock and blues and he did it with his own style. With so many Guitar-slingers and SRV wannabe's, I found Joe Bonamassa to be original and sincere, playing some of the greatest classic songs with his own unique blend plus writing some really good songs of his own. My Joe Bonamassa collection has bulked up over the past couple of years, and now he seems to be in a period of creative genius where I find albums rolling out in short due. His collaborations with other artists indicate that Joe is a musician, not just another egotistic "Hey. Look at me!" guitar player. I saw Joe in Wilmington Delaware last year and he was tremendous. DUST BOWL shows Joe coming into his own. He has developed a sound that is strictly Joe Bonamassa and each album has that stamp that automaticly makes you recognize him. But its not same ole same ole stuff...its fresh and crisp and so very clean. Joe Bonamassa is a winner and every album he has released these past couple years demonstrate his greatness as a musician. If you like this style of Blues/ Rock, you cannot go wrong with any Joe Bonamassa CD.

For me, it's always a GREAT day when my man Joe releases new tuneage. I am NOT a professional music reviewer, but I love everything he's ever done, not to mention his humbleness. My kind of guy all around. Especially in the absence of Stevie Ray (I'm still grieving). I know that all music is down to personal taste, and for me, Blues does it mighty fine--'specially Joe's!

Whenever Joe Bonamassa puts out a new album, I try to give it a lot of spins before I write a review. He has yet to release a record that I don't enjoy, but I certainly like some more than others and it usually takes at least a week's worth of constant rotation before I can really judge where it falls in the pantheon of his work. After receiving my pre-order of 'Dust Bowl' a full week before the release date and having it spinning non-stop since, I can safely say that this is easily Joe's best record since 'You and Me', and possibly right up there with the best he's ever done, alongside the aforementioned 'You and Me' and his early classic 'Blues Deluxe'.

Since 'You and Me', Joe has released a lot of great music, but this is the first truly great ALBUM. 'Sloe Gin' had a lot of knockout moments but lacked a lot of the fiery lead playing and didn't feel like a cohesive whole. 'The Ballad of John Henry' felt much more like a complete album, but it dragged in spots and for me, lacked a certain fire. 'Black Rock' blew me away at first with it's return to some of the blazing lead work, but the material was so all over the place that it didn't seem to have a natural flow to it. 'Dust Bowl' brings everything together. Now, some old school fans are going to be disappointed that this isn't 'Blues Deluxe II'. But you have to realize that Joe is no longer the artist that made that record. He has moved beyond his rag-tag power trio knocking out rocked-up versions of blues chestnuts. He's really become an artist, and he does a great job here of taking chances and keeping things varied, while never losing that signature Joe sound. The originals and cover meld together perfectly, and the guest spots are brilliantly chosen.
