JOE BONAMASSA
REDEMPTION
$14.99(sale priced)
Redemption, Joes 13th studio release, he and producer Kevin Shirley conspire to use every single crayon within the blue color box to deliver one of his best studio releases to date. Bonamassa has never sought to hide his affinity for guitar based 70s classic rock, and his Black Country Communion project (which includes the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, as well as Deep Purple alumni Glenn Hughes), gave him plenty of room to conjure up the ghost of Jimmy Page. It even appears said ghost managed to linger in the studio where they recorded Redemption, because the opening drumbeats of Evil Mama are exact replicas of the Zeppelins classic Rock and Roll.Things quickly veer off into funky, horn popping territory though, when instead of hearing about how its been a long time, Joe questions why hed let a difficult dame put her chains on him. With a tasty wah-wah guitar solo and some fantastic background vocals from Bonamassas knockout background vocal trio of Mahalia Barnes, Jade McRae and Juanita Tippins, Evil Mama is slinky, infectious and instantly a great album opener thats hard not to move to.
BILLY F GIBBONS
BIG BAD BLUES
$13.99(sale priced)
The albums 11 tracks are a mix of Gibbons original tunes along with covers of classics including Muddy Waters Standing Around Crying and Rollin and Tumblin, along with Bo Diddley favorites as well with Bring It To Jerome and Crackin Up.As for the album content, check it out Hey now! Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, he says. Its no secret there are several favorites from the way-back starting with not one, but two, from the Bo Diddley catalog [Bring It to Jerome and Crackin Up]. We dusted off an old Gretsch Duo-Jet guitar which put it squarely with that infamous Bo Diddley sound. Once covered, we made way into another sidea much earlier number from Muddy Waters, Standing Around Crying. The ragged edges with the meanness of James bad self on harp seemed to fit the bill to enter the lineup. Favorites? Gibbons says, Missin Yo Kissin is a gift from Miz Gibbons. She knows what girls want and laid it out cold. And Second Line is a definite throwback to many good days and nights down New Orleans way. Other tracks on The Big Bad Blues are easy pickin, sayin it all. Its a street affair.Gibbons has been a blues fan and devotee since childhood. I suspect Jimmy Reed did me in early on. The inventiveness of that high and lonesome sound remains solid and stridently strong to this day. We could go on to mention the lineup of usual suspects, Howlin Wolf, Muddy, all three Kings [B.B., Albert and Freddie]. The lengthy list of champions are forever carved in stone.
SLASH
LIVING THE DREAM
$11.99(sale priced)
The 'Living The Dream' sessions, which commenced in late March, saw Slash and his SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS bandmates Myles Kennedy (vocals), Brent Fitz (drums), Todd Kerns (bass and vocals) and Frank Sidoris (guitar and vocals) reunite with producer Michael 'Elvis' Baskette, who also helmed 2014's 'World On Fire'. 'We didn't do drums [at Snakepit] because it just doesn't have a high enough ceiling for [that], but for everything else, it's great,' Slash told 'Rock City'. 'I mean, it's only a 16-track board in there, and we did this entire record on that. We mixed over at Elvis's place in Florida, but other than that, it's totally functional, and it sounds really good.''It's just too expensive making analog records for me, out of pocket, because in this day and age of making records, the chances of you seeing a return on a record that cost you a hundred thousand dollars or more to make, it just isn't really cost effective,' Slash explained. 'So we did it on Pro Tools and we just bounced everything into 40-some-odd tracks.'
PRINCE
PIANO & A MICROPHONE 1983
$12.99(sale priced)
ts taken two years for the first of what will become a stream of posthumous releases to emerge from Princes vast archival vault, but the wait has been worthwhile. Taped in January 1983 at his Kiowa Trail home studio in Minnesota, Piano And A Microphone delivers exactly what its title promises, and much more.Offering remarkable insights into Princes creative process, it features nine songs performed alone at the piano. Some are classics-in-waiting (we get 90 delicious seconds of Purple Rain), some are tenderly exploratory covers (Joni Mitchells A Case Of You), some are in the first flood of composition (a fun, mumbo-jumbo bash at Strange Relationship, which appeared later on Sign O The Times), and some have remained unheard until now. Piano And A Microphone shows us the artist at play in his creative dressing-up box, throwing on styles and persona, pleasing himself, running on instinct. We hear him road-testing arrangements on the fly, scatting rhythmic ideas and guitar parts, playing dazzling piano and flipping through his repertoire of vocal styles with unfiltered joy.
