IN THE VAULT 04/20/2015

It seems like every time I turn around in Zia Records (Arizona and Nevada's ass-kickin' record store chain) there is a new release from Joe Bonamassa-either a new studio effort, a live CD or DVD. The man is nothing if not prolific, and in case ya didn't know, he can play guitar.

Beth Hart, while not a household name, has beaten some long odds overcoming drug addiction that nearly ended her career and her life, and only a few years later appearing alongside Jeff Beck on the Kennedy Center Honors Buddy Guy special. Beth is nowhere near as prolific as Joe, but has a catalog worth checking out (including her latest, released last week).

Together they have released two albums (three if you count the live album), and this week I wanted to draw your attention to their first.
