EPISODE #48: Six Decades Alive in Europe
Just outside of Rotterdam, in a club called "The Borderline," Joe Bonamassa played his first gig in Europe and found hundreds of fans there. That concert ten years ago gave Joe a small taste of the warm reception that the blues can get in Europe. European music fans have been more welcoming than their American counterparts and the live albums recorded there represent some of the most exciting records ever made. On this week's edition of the Pickup, Joe and Matt survey six decades of live albums made in Europe that capture the energy and excitement that only live blues can deliver.
