Joe Bonamassa is a very busy man. In March he released his latest solo album Dust Bowl and in June his band Black Country Communion released 2, arguably the best rock album of the year. Now the dream team of Bonamassa and producer Kevin Shirley join up with singer/songwriter Beth Hart for Don’t Explain, a 10 track collection of soul covers.
CD+DVD deluxe edition of the powerhouse blues duos second album of soulful covers. Featuring classics made famous by Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Lucinda Williams and many more. In 2014 Hart was nominated for a Grammy Award for Seesaw and she was also nominated for a Blues Music Award in the category 'Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist'. The DVD includes 48 minutes making of footage with exclusive interviews and 3 Studio music videos.
The collaboration between soulful singer Beth Hart and popular blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa has been both critically-acclaimed and commercially successful. While their 2011 album Don't Explain laid a foundation and flitted on and off the blues chart for a couple years, their 2013 album Seesaw earned the pair a Grammy nomination and still sits in the Top Ten.
This double disc is an exact replication of a concert vocalist Beth Hart and guitarist Joe Bonamassa performed in Amsterdam in support of their studio album Seesaw. What you hear is what was played: there are no overdubs or digital studio fixes. They replicate all but one track from the studio album ("Sunday Kind of Love") and five more from their 2011 offering Don't Explain, and play some other covers and a long band jam called "Antwerp Jam" as a finale.
Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Beth Hart, known for her raw and powerful blues-rock sound, wraps her expressive vocals around classic soul cover album Don’t Explain - an album that grew out of her friendship with blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa. Produced by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes), the album features Hart’s interpretations of ten soulful blues songs (with 1 bonus track on this edition), with Bonamassa on guitar and his ace band filling out the tracks.
Collection includes 10 studio albums and 4 live albums by American blues-rock guitar virtuoso Joe Bonamassa.
