My feelings toward Joe Bonamassa are mostly that he puts out too much material, I don't normally like live albums and Kevin Shirley effectively puts Bonamassa in a box and stifles his creativity.
However unoriginal another live album comprising entirely of covers may be for a blues artist, I thought I'd give it a go.
Results are both pleasing and surprising.
I actually didn't listen to it once through and dismiss it. I didn't even glance over it and go "it's just another live CD in the pile". No, I actually listened to it several times already and like it.
The overall sound and vibe is better than even the "Live at the Greek" album. I have no idea why I was even drawn to it but it's great and I found the songs were not a 'chore' to listen to.
