Joe Bonamassa Driving Towards The Daylight on 180g 2LP + Download
Recorded at Studio At The Palms in Las Vegas, NV, The Village Recorder in Los Angeles, CA and The Cave in Malibu, CA, 2012's Driving Towards The Daylight is a balanced back-to-basics album that highlights blues-rock guitar hero and singer-songwriter Joe Bonamassa's signature style of roots blues with rock-and-roll guts, while honoring the traditions of the original blues musicians.
"We've taken some really traditional old blues songs – the Howlin' Wolf song ‘Who's Been Talkin'?' and the Robert Johnson song ‘Stones In My Passway,' and we've tried to imagine how they would do them in a rock context," said longtime producer Kevin Shirley. "It's a very exciting return to the blues in a very visceral way. It's vibrant and it's gutsy and it's really, really rugged."
