On British Blues Explosion Live, Joe Bonamassa pays homage to legendary British guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page with his stunning performance of their blues-rock classics. Recorded at Greenwich Music Time at The Old Royal Naval College in London in July, 2016. The 5 piece band included Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (keyboards), Anton Fig (drums) and Russ Irwin (rhythm guitar/backing vocals).

We really do wonder what Joe Bonamasa puts in his morning coffee. The blues-rock workaholic is back, with an ever-growing electric current in his fingers. Once again, he fills the arena with British blues lovers and preaches a sermon that all his sheep never tire of listening to. British Blues Explosion Live bears his name perfectly. It is a bomb that has just been released at Greenwhich Music Time in London, where no less than fourteen tracks have been recorded. While the attention revolves around Bonamasa, he pays tribute to his heroes from Old Blighty, namely Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. He begins with a cover of Beck’s Bolero/Rice Pudding, then follows with a sequence of surprises: Plynth by Rod Stewart, Motherless Children by Clapton, Tea For One by Page and Let Me Love You Baby by Willie Dixon! We find here yet more talent from Bonamasa, who knows how to appropriate classics and not to be crushed by the genius of his predecessors. – Anna Coluthe
