Top 5 Live Albums of 2015

2015 has come to an end. Blues Rock is a genre all about live music and these five groups were voted as the top 5 live albums of 2015 by Blues Rock Review.

5. Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado: Songs From The Road

“You quickly realize that Thorbjørn ranks up there with the best live blues bands when his gnarly voice, tight band, and his innovative, yet true to form blues rock sound roars its way into your living room.” – Kevin O’Rourke

4. Ian Siegal: One Night In Amsterdam

“One Night in Amsterdam is an instant classic in the tradition of other classic live albums like Mad Dogs and Englishmen and  Live at Liberty Lunch.  If you love great singing and songwriting performed by an amazing band, you will absolutely love One Night in Amsterdam.” – Lou Lombardi

3. Robert Cray Band: 4 Nights of 40 Years Live

“The package is a fun retrospective of one of contemporary blues’ most beloved artists and is a must own for all Robert Cray fans.” – Lou Lombardi

2. Eric Clapton: Slowhand at 70

“He’s one of the pioneers of the blues rock combination and for his 70th birthday, Clapton gives us a celebration performance that encompasses his career.  While the touring might be slowing down as he ages his playing has continued to develop more nuance and restraint while still displaying the chops that made him a legend.” – Kevin O’Rourke

1. Joe Bonamassa: Live At Radio City Music Hall

“All in all, Live at Radio City Music Hall is more traditional both on the electric and the acoustic sets but never sacrifices the blistering lead guitar that we have come to expect from Mr. Bonamassa.” – Lou Lombardi
