Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

OK, so does Joe's store do pre orders? I'll be at the 2009 opener in Northampton, and want to know how to get a hold of one of these copies  before the 26'th. Any one know if this is possible, or will I have to wait 'till the night of the show on Feb. 26'th and buy one there?

Life is too short. Listen to great blues music.

Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

Februari damn thats a long way ahead ... mmm Derek trucks will ease my mind first.

Looking forward to JB's new album.

Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

Look out and listen out for Joe promoting TBOJH in the next few weeks. On last night's show on Planet Rock Joe mentioned that he will be in the UK in a couple of weeks to do some PR.

If you do not have your own affiliate account, please use this link or another worthy one and give the credit toward helping a friend get to Royal Albert Hall!
Thank You!
Please though consider joining the affiliates because it is a great way to spread the word about Joe and this release, and get appreciated for it as well. I also find it very helpful to give thanks to Joe by finding creative ways to testify about the joys of his music while you are sharing the link.

"Stellar" a word used by Joe Bonamassa (also apt as a description of the man himself cool)

Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

I thought I saw on another thread someone mentioning a link where you could get audio teasers from TBOJH.  I can't find it!
HELP!!!

Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

Thanks Babs for that link to the Dutch radio show. I actually did catch it , and heard 3 of Joes new songs. TBOJH was great. "Funkier than a Mosquitos Tweeter" was interesting (Ike/Tina Turner cover?).  It definately had a Funk/Blues sound. "You Better Stop "(Sam Brown?) was great. Both of these last two songs had great horn playing. Makes me wonder if Joe has any plans on bringing horns to his live shows? Anyways, thanks a lot for the heads up. Can't wait for Northampton for the 2009 tour opener!

Life is too short. Listen to great blues music.

Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

play.com and hmv.com have TBOJH available in 'limited edition digipack'.
Can anyone explain what digipack is - and the benefits if any?

Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

Hi All does anybody know if The Ballad of John Henry will also be available on vinyl. I enjoy Live from nowhere in particular very much

Re: OFFICIAL Release date "The Ballad of John Henry"

Does anyone know if TBOJH will be available on Amie Street? That's the best place for music for distant folks like me so I don't have to hassle with all the add-ons for shipping, duties, etc.  Physical CDs are almost double the cost by the time they get to me. I will give an arm and a leg for this album but I really would prefer not to...
