Joe Bonamassa Live At Radio City Music Hall
Joe Bonamassa
Label: J&R Adventures
Release Date: October 2, 2015
Review Date: October 4, 2015

 

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it yet, again:  

The short version of this review (as with the past reviews of Bonamassa projects): Love it/Buy it.

The latest live offering by the guitar virtuoso is a delightful collection of songs that clock in at around seventy-five minutes. It features nine previously unreleased tracks and two just recorded songs.

That’s just on the CD. 

There’s also a DVD that’s part of the package and it features over three hours of great stuff, including two and a half hours of live performance culled from his two sold out shows at the RCMH, and some great behind the scenes bonus footage that includes his mom and dad giving Joe two cherished family heirlooms (sorry, you’ll need to get your own copy of this to find out what that is) and a little tour of his childhood home.  This is all capped off with a 40-page booklet that is chock full of pictures and info. 

The performances reflect a good chunk of what people were privileged to see during Bonamassa’s tour wherein the first half was an acoustic set and the second half featured his renowned prowess on the electric guitar.

Interestingly, the CD does not totally mirror the set list on the DVD. There are just enough differences between the two to make it interesting.

Needless to say, Boomerocity proudly has this package added to our listening/viewing library and believe that you really should, too.

Yeah, it’s that good.
