new Joe Bonamassa Album


Recommended Posts

I'll have a listen.


I like Bonamassa but at the moment he is in my bad books.


I have a "thing" about the Billie Holiday song Strange Fruit. I'm not talking about the powerful poignant words but the song structure and melody (it is a blues) and I noticed Bonamassa and Beth Hart had done a cover. I thought "great - bound to be good" and so I downloaded an MP3 version only to find it had been mangled. Really didn't like it.


Interestingly, I have heard blues guitar on this song played brilliantly with Billie's singing in the background but I just cannot find the version anywhere. The version I heard was on a BBC programme about Billie Holiday and I think it must've been a hired BBC session musician playing in the background to Billie's vocals.
