    I guess we all have different tastes. My top 4 albums, based on which ones have the most songs on my personal playlist:

    1)Blues of Desperation – 7 songs
    2)Different Shades of Blue – 5 songs
    3)Driving Towards the Daylight – 4 songs
    4)The Ballad of John Henry – 4 songs

    And tied for 5th, 3 other albums with 2 songs each (An Acoustic Evening, Black Rock, and Dust Bowl).

    I really liked Different Shades of Blue when it was released, I think the writing is a big step up… for some reason I just don’t listen to it much anymore. You & Me is a great album, too.

    Driving Towards the Daylight is probably my least favorite of his albums. For the most part, the lyrics are terrible.
    Heavenly Soul is great, but it’s the only good original on it. Some of the covers are weak as well (well, relatively speaking). Different strokes for different folks, of course.

    My top Joe Bonamassa album is “Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House”. I saw the video production of this on PBS and he had me hooked.
    I am systematically purchasing his work and of course I receive his email newsletter. Thank You for your great email.

    1) So it’s Like That- All flows well, Sophomore effort. 2) Slow Gin- Title track, Ball pe n hammer, Black Night, etc. 3) 3) Ballad of John Henry- Stop, Happier Times, so much more! 4) Dust Bowl- Title track, Last Matador of Bayonne, Prisoner; Strong album. 5) Driving Towards the Daylight- Title track, Dislocated Boy, etc. Can’t go wrong with any of Joe’s Albums!!!

    I’m a little surprised at the lack of love for You and Me – Bridge to Better Days, So Many Roads, and the excellent cover of Tea for One
