Hard to believe it’s August already! Where did the summer go?
Time for another edition of Battle of the Bands.
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week. (See below for further details.)
I’m taking a calculated risk by using the original artist in this battle.
In my opinion, the opponent is good enough to make it an interesting showdown.
♫ British blues/rock band VS American blues/rock guitar prodigy ♫
THE JEFF BECK GROUP f. ROD STEWART
The Jeff Beck Group (first incarnation; there were two) formed in London in early 1967 and included guitarist Jeff Beck, vocalist Rod Stewart, guitarist Ronnie Wood, and a changing roster of bass players and drummers. “Blues Deluxe” was written by Beck and Stewart under the pseudonym, “Jeffrey Rod” and included on their debut album, “Truth”, released in 1968.
Joe Bonamassa (born May 8, 1977) is an American blues/rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. When he was only 12 years old, Bonamassa opened for B.B. King. In the last 13 years he has put out 15 solo albums through his independent record label J&R Adventures, of which 11 have reached #1 on the Billboard Blues Charts. “Blues Deluxe” is included in his third album of the same name, released in 2003.
Please state your preference in comments below and why you chose it.
Voting remains open until Aug. 8th
after which I will count the votes, add mine and publish the results.
Hubby and I are road-tripping in Michigan this week, but I’ll do my best to keep up.
These are the other BOTB regulars and semi-regulars.
Please cruise on by their sites and, if they have a post up, vote on their selections as well:
