At the latest since her cooperation with Joe Bonamassa on the celebrated album "Don't Explain" in 2011, Beth Hart has been regarded as the high priestess of blues rock. In her new work "War In My Mind", the Californian fights against the dark shadows of her past.
In the darn seventh year of their collaboration, "Black Coffee" is the third studio work of the unequal couple Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa. There she is, carrying her heart on her tongue and unable to give any 08/15 interviews, and there he is, the jack-of-all-trades of blues rock, who would like to be perceived as Eric Clapton of modern times. eclipsed Bonamassa said hello to Beth Hart on the sidelines of his London concert with Black Country Communion Concerts. The magazine spoke at length with Beth Hart.
Beth Hart's career stagnated when Joe Bonamassa recorded soul and rhythm & blues classics with her for the first time in 2011. Although the singer had released "My California" the year before, a great ballad work in the field of rockpop, the star who made the "LA Song" shine in 1999 did not come from the spot. Hart played shows in front of a few hundred people. Yesterday's snow.
PINK FLOYD - The early years
Half a century after the founding of the band and two years after the end of Pink Floyd announced by David Gilmour, the art-rock legend presents "The Early Years 1965-1972", a box full of 27 CDs full of rarities from her early years. We take this publication as an opportunity to recapitulate these eight formative years - the prehistory of a world career. We also let Nick Mason speak in detail about the huge archive box and his memories of that phase.
GROBSCHNITT - Rockpalastrevolte
Also with her twelfth studio album "Fire On The Floor" Beth Hart lives up to her reputation as the high priestess of white blues. The 44-year-old US-American is simply an emotional elemental force, a never extinguishing volcano. She howls, moans and screams as if every song is about her life, which seems to consist solely of pain, unbridled lust and longing. The Hart has a powerful, irresistible voice, in the tradition of a Bessie Smith or Janis Joplin. With this she pulls the listener unprotected and suddenly into her spell. In the conversation, the Californian also takes no account of anything or anyone. Least of all yourself.
eclipsed: The term "home" plays a central role in many of your songs. How do you define your home?
Better Than Home" has become a two-part, but by no means dubious work. While in the first part Beth Hart musically ties in with the soul-influenced blues of their predecessor "Bang Bang Boom Boom" (2012) and their Bonamassa collaborations, in the course of the album more and more pop and rock musical aspects come to bear.
STEVE HACKETT - The Wheel's Turning (7:23)
Album: Wolflight (2015)
Once again the master guitarist and composer takes us on an eventful journey through different countries and epochs, which will not be forgotten so quickly. It is almost a miracle that the former Genesis string acrobat never copies himself and yet always remains himself.
Not for Branson: Oldfield's turbulent time at Virgin Records
40 years ago Mike Oldfield entered Richard Branson's semi-finished studio The Manor. In 1972/73 he recorded his rock-historical album "Tubular Bells" there. The surprise success laid the foundation for Branson's Virgin Empire. Before 20 the business relationship between Virgin Music and the musician of the century came to an end - Oldfield and the label boss hadn't been friends for a long time.
