Joe Bonamassa Live Greek Theatre 2CD
2 CD Set. Comes in Jewel Case. Factory Sealed.
2016 two CD live release from the celebrated blues rock master. Joe Bonamassa delivers a musical tribute to The Three Kings Of the Blues (Albert, Freddie and B.B.) at the legendary Greek Theatre - taped in August 2015. On this release, Bonamassa is backed by a stellar band of blues musicians. Playing on a warm summer night to a nearly sold-out crowd, Bonamassa's handpicked setlist of songs was called "spectacular" by Premier Guitar; Los Angeles Times said the show "had swing and Polish" and that "Bonamassa evoked the signature licks of all three icons while managing to put his own stamp on things." Songs ranged from blues standards to deep cuts, including "Born Under A Bad Sign," "Lonesome Whistle Blues," "Hummingbird," "Let The Good Times Roll," and, of course, B.B. King's famed "The Thrill Is Gone" as the evening closer. For Bonamassa, the tour's importance deepened significantly when B.B., his friend and mentor, passed away two months before it began. "My only regret is that B.B. was not alive to see it," said Bonamassa.
