Frankly, I'm stunned.
8 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Just to get it out of the way, I'm stunned that no one has thrown up a review.

I'm also much more stunned by Joe Bonamassa and his main backing group here. Maybe I'll listen to the extended group and horn-type tracks, but maybe not. What I will definitely listen to is the pure blues reference tracks here - could be written by Joe, certainly arranged by him - but every one is an absolute pearl.

Just when everyone thinks it's done the encore is a wonderful 3 minute multicultural muse (well, I hear middle eastern & Indian influences) leading flawlessly into "Mountain Time", which for me is the standout track on the whole performance. And yes, it reminds me of the time when a girl could (almost) influence me to throw it all away, and live for the moment.

He's backed by one of the best bass guitarists I've heard, the keyboards are perfect, and the double drumming is excellent. This must be played loud!!.

And when earlier on he takes up a "Flying V" and sort of takes the p*ss out of heavy metal, you'll definitely get the impression that this guy can do it all. And I'm comparing him with Eric Johnson and Joe Satriani!.

There was another Albert Hall gig about four years later, part of a four venue UK tour, but in my opinion you won't bother with it after hearing this.

Just wonderful.
