Joe Bonamassa | Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening
If you’ve released as many live albums as Joe Bonamassa – 14 at last count – you can’t get away with recreating your biggest songs note for note to a room of cheering fans. That’s just a second-rate greatest hits album and/or a blatant cash-in. Bonamassa clearly knows that. So each of his concert recordings is different – whether it be the setlist, the backing musicians, the guitar solos, the arrangements, the historic venue, or the instrumentation. In the case of ‘Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening’ it’s all of the above.
