#52 The Roots Of Blues Deluxe

The Roots Of Blues Deluxe
Episode Description

Joe Bonamassa’s third studio album Blues Deluxe has been a longtime fan favorite. Packed with covers of blues standards and a few choice originals, it’s a record that marks Joe’s beginnings as an independent artist. Today on the Pickup, Joe and Matt look back on the album’s musical inspirations and the peculiar conditions of its creation: Joe and his manager scraping together enough money to rent studio time above a Sbarro’s, using borrowed gear and recycling a retouched photo from a previous album shoot.
