Album Review

Singer/songwriter Beth Hart continues to explore her blues and soul roots via 11 cover versions of her favorite tracks on Seesaw, her second album with blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa. Following the same path as their first collaboration, the 2011 all-covers release Don't Explain, the pair hooked up again with producer Kevin Shirley, who has previously worked with Led Zeppelin, Journey, Black Crowes, Joe Bonamassa, and numerous others. The 11 tunes kick off with a jump blues rendition of "Them There Eyes," a rock blues take on Ike & Tina Turner's "Nutbush City Limits"; punchy horns accentuate the Buddy Miles penned "Miss Lady," and they give a straightforward soul treatment to the Don Covay/Steve Cropper tune "See Saw" recorded by Aretha Franklin in 1968. The influence of Janis Joplin and Etta James is evident on the powerful ballads "If I Tell You I Love You" and "A Sunday Kind of Love." The album closes with an eerie version of the anti-lynching poem from 1937 associated with Billie Holiday, "Strange Fruit." Also returning from the Don't Explain album are Bonamassa's assembled backing band: Anton Fig (drums and percussion), Blondie Chaplin (guitar), Carmine Rojas (bass), Arlan Schierbaum (keyboards), Lenny Castro (percussion), and Michael Rhodes (bass on "I'll Love You More Than You'll Ever Know").

Customer Reviews

When Will Beth Get Recognition?

This woman has paid her dues! She has some pipes! I'm just glad Joe recognizes her talent and passion. Her version of "I'd rather go blind" on their first collaborative album is, in my opinion the best version of that great song! Oh, . . . and Joe is pretty good too.

Open your ears/mind

I think this album eclipses "Don't Explain". If these two musicians were to lay out the exact format of the first album they would not be takng risks. If you saw the "webisodes" on Joe and Beth's site following the making of this album you might have a better understanding of why they made this. If you were to say you just want to hear Joe, and I am a huge bona-holic, then the argument could be made with him also. Joe started as a bluesman but on his last 3 albums has become a rocker who happens to play blues. So I say give it a break, really listen to it. I hope this collaboration continues for a long time to come. It's refreshing to hear two talented musicians really make tremendous music.

its good

again Joe keeps changing things up; Beth keeps belting out the notes and Joe keeps on doing what he does best...being versitile and one hell of a musician. Keep recording and i'll keep listening.
