Joe Bonamassa: Blues Of Desperation

Hugh Fielder, Classic Rock, March 2016

THE INDEFATIGABLE Joe Bonamassa shows no sign of easing up any time soon. The past four years have seen him involved in a dozen releases. These include two solo studio albums and five live CD/DVDs, one of which features four different London shows. There were also five collaborations; a couple with Beth Hart, one with Mahalia Barnes (daughter of Jimmy) paying tribute to the songs of funk singer Betty Davis, a likely last throw of the dice with hardrock supergroup Black Country Communion and an altogether more challenging adventure with Rock Candy Funk Party.
