Found the major UK music stores a total waste of time.
Buy my cd's and dvd's on Amazon uk. (not .com as thats yankee curency and snail mail) amazon uk is quicker to deliver but does not always have out of isssue american bands such as Chris Aaron Band etc. (worth looking up on the net Cory Sterling ex KWS was with them-where is he now?
Good selection and far better priced than uk stores.
Use credit or debit card.
First found Joe on grooveyardrecords.com but bought from amazon.co.uk
Amazon give short clips to listen to but I use myspace nowadays to listen to full track if the artist has a myspace page.
Found myspace when looking up Eric Czar, he even emailed me a reply, same evening.
Just themed my myspace page to circa 1969 when I was 21.
Lots of vids from youtube of bands from that era if your interested.

Not sure how long till I return to 21st century.
Having seen Joe 3 times in one year I'm afraid the novelty is wearing off.
Feel he needs to slow down and become more creative rather than covering my generations numbers.
Still think he is a superstar in the making but we need to hear more of HIM.

I am not so sure that he needs to change a great deal.
Listening to his albums I think he is very creative and I love his covers, they need to get played more which is really difficult in todays market
The quality of his recordings is first class.
Maybe he needs one absolute stunning track to increase his publicity.
There is something different about him. I just love that sound and variation in his music, always keeps your attention. The one thing surprised me about seeing him live was just how entertaining the evening was, considering I had not hrd a single track prior to the concert.
I have been to many concerts of pure blues guitarists and thought they sound very samey.
Its all be done b4
Commercially being pure blues can be limiting
I realise that you have listened to Joe  for many years and my prospective is from a Bonavirgin.
I know we both wish him further success.

Re: Live @ Rockpalast DVD brief review

Hi gOfyd,  I'm right there with you on there is something different about Joe, love the sound and variation....I personally love listening to anything Joe.  I may be considered a "cheerleader" for Joe, but I listen to Joe for the "pure enjoyment" I receive from his music.  It just all connects for me & my soul.    I told someone  recently that Joe would have to rape, maim, or kill before I would ever dream of saying anything less than positive.  He's the artist, the creator of magical music and fun.  That is the kind of fan I am and Joe, Mark, & Bogie this Iowa girl can't wait until you step out onto the stage at The Surf next month.  You'll know me, I'll be the one with the gigantic smile on my face.

Covering my generations numbers is exactly why I was drawn to Joe. The first time I saw him during the ANDY tour the moment I realized he was in another leauge as a player was his version of Are You Experienced.
I bought the DVD and Had To Cry Today was an unexpected surprise.

Sorry the novelty is wearing off daddy, but that is just the way you feel. I have been on the bandwagon now for 4 years and I havn't grown tired of Joe's ability to draw from the past and help me relive the good old days of Blues Rock. He is also allowing those not around at the beggining of the British reinvention of the blues to experience it for themselves.

I sat at the feet of Jimmy Page in 1970 I was 12 years old. It was a feeling I never felt again till sitting at the feet of Joe 32 years later. There is much more to come from Joe B. I'm just not in any hurry for him to distance himself from what atracted me in the first place.

I suggest you relax and watch the evolution of an artist who will surprise you when you think you have seen it all. He still makes me wonder if there is any limits to his talent.

Re: Live @ Rockpalast DVD brief review

Live at Rockpalast seems to have been the first introduction to Joe for many new fans across the pond.  And jim, this is SWEET!!!"I sat at the feet of Jimmy Page in 1970 I was 12 years old. It was a feeling I never felt again till sitting at the feet of Joe 32 years later. There is much more to come from Joe B.
