Just a quickie here – I wanted to share some music! I was looking for a third album to put my Amazon purchase over the minimum to receive free shipping, when I came across a new release by Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa. I have a couple of her albums and I thought I’d check it out. Oh. My. Gosh. This is their second collaboration, both albums covering classic blues and blues rock songs. I just love the power, personality, and shiver in her voice, and Joe Bonamassa and the other musicians deliver a richness and fullness that make the entire album a complete joy to listen to.
To give you an idea of the range on this album, here’s an incredible, aggressive cover of my favorite Tina Turner song, Nutbush City Limits:
And here’s a smooth, sexy, funky version of Rhymes, performed previously by both Etta James and Al Green.
