of the Joe Bonamassa Band, brings the blues alive in this 2003 Year of The Blues with Blues Deluxe. As the much anticipated follow up to “So, It’s Like That,” which triumphed at Number One on the Billboard Blues chart in 2002, Blues Deluxe is guaranteed to be the best blues / rock release in decades. With guitar phenom Joe Bonamassa, and the master of low end Eric Czar, Kramme has truly dug deep into the roots of the blues. Blues Deluxe features BB King’s “You Upset Me Baby,” Albert Collins’ “Left Overs,” John Lee Hooker’s “Burning Hell,” Buddy Guy’s “Man of Many Words,” Elmore James’ “Wild About You Baby,” and among others, Robert Johnson’s “Walking Blues.” Blues Deluxe also features raw blues depth in Bonamassa’s “Woke Up Dreaming” and “I Don’t Live Anywhere,” which rides ever so sweetly atop Kramme’s old school touch behind the kit. The purity of Blues Deluxe is undeniable. In celebrating the greatness of these blues legends, “You Upset Me Baby” is all the feel and blues of a BB King song held tight as could be with Kramme’s in the pocket chops and fills. Hooker’s “Burning Hell” is simply astonishing. This power trio has captured the blues soul of the song and brought it ripping new life with Bonamassa’s finger madness, Czar’s savant delivery of low end, and Kramme’s fantastic drumming, which teases, crescendos, slams, breaks and waits, and simply carries the whole masterpiece. And the magic of Blues Deluxe does not stop there. Through and through Blues Deluxe is fast proving to be the best blues / rock release to emerge in years and will be sure to top the Billboard charts. In stores everywhere August 26th it will take only one listen to cement this album as a permanent spin in your CD player.
