Joe Bonamassa Black Rock on Limited Edition Import 180g LP

Featuring a Duet with the Late Great B.B. King!

2010's Black Rock served as blues-rock guitar hero and singer-songwriter Joe Bonamassa's tenth full-length solo album and it re-teamed him with producer Kevin Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin), who also helmed 2009's The Ballad of John Henry, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Blues Chart. The album was recorded at, and named for, Black Rock Studios in Santorini, Greece.

"With this album, we wanted to explore a ‘world' feeling, and this was the inspiration behind going to record in Greece and using some of the best Greek musicians to add a little flavor to a couple of the tracks. But it's by no means a ‘world' album. We wanted Joe's usual youthful and energetic tones to play alongside the worldly vibes of the Greek bouzouki and clarino," said Shirley. Bonamassa adds, "It was the kind of record Kevin and I wanted to make. We needed to rock again a bit like on my first album. It's youthful, like going back to your childhood."

Blues legend B.B. King duets with Bonamassa on the Willie Nelson-penned song, "Night Life," which also appeared on King's 1967 album Blues Is King. Shirley says about the experience, "This is a rollicking Stonesy-vibe version of the Willie Nelson song on which B.B. King duets with Joe, both vocally and on his famous Lucille guitar. What a joy and an honor to work with the legend who is possibly the pivot point and unifying musician between blues and rock."

Other tracks appearing on Black Rock include Jeff Beck's "Spanish Boots," Leonard Cohen's poetic "Bird On A Wire," Otis Rush's "Three Times A Fool," Bobby Parker's "Steal Your Heart Away," Blind Boy Fuller's "Baby, You Gotta Change Your Mind," John Hiatt's "I Know A Place," and James Clark's "Look Over Yonder's Wall," as well as the originals "When The Fire Hits The Sea," "Wandering Earth," "Athens To Athens," and "Blue and Evil."
