BLUES DELUXE | #BOTB RESULTS

31 CommentsBattle of the Bands (BOTB), Link Ups, Music

Welcome back to #BOTB!
Time to announce the results of the August 1st showdown.

Battle of the Bands BOTB, BLUES DELUXE

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.

♫ This contest featured blues/rock artists from opposite sides of the Atlantic. ♫

The Jeff Beck Group started off strong and I was regretting using the original artist! Not to worry, though. Joe Bonamassa soon caught up and it became a close battle. Here’s how you voted :

THE JEFF BECK GROUP:
Angelika, Shady, Arlee, Diedre, Angel Stew, Cherdo, Janie, Birgit, Stephen, DiscConnected

TOTAL: 10

~~~~~

JOE BONAMASSA:
Cathy, Cathy’s DH, Mary, John, Michele, Guilie, Pat, Myke, Mike

TOTAL: 9

Many of you liked both versions and that’s my problem, too. Rod and Joe both have those sexy, raspy voices, perfect for the blues. Jeff and Joe are equally phenomenal guitarists. How to choose? I listened to each recording several times and felt like I should flip a coin! Since I’m a sucker for guitar virtuosity, my final choice is Joe Bonamassa, only because his brilliance was evident throughout. Jeff’s best work came about 3/4 of the way through. I did enjoy the piano riffs, though.

and the winner is:

#BOTB TIE! BLUES DELUXE

THE JEFF BECK GROUP: 10 VOTES | JOE BONAMASSA: 10 VOTES

There’s no live performance video of the Jeff Beck Group doing “Blues Deluxe”, but here’s a reunion between Jeff and Rod, decades later. Joe has many live videos to choose from. Check out this smokin’ performance from 2013:

      1. Debbie,
        That post is not live yet. I don’t know why it came up but it will be published on the 17th which is Wednesday of this week. It is for the WEP, and I set it up so that I don’t have to do it at the last minute.

        Also, I have two twitter accounts. The one that I use the most is the one with my pen name, @pat_garcia. So, please use that one even though I did accept your follow on the other account.

        Hope you are fine, Lady.
        Greetings out of good old Germany.
        Shalom aleichem,
        Pat

  1. A tie? That was a squeeker that needed squelched. Truthfully, I could have gone either way. It’s hard to chose sometimes…okay, I do love Jeff Beck…maybe it’s not hard to chose. I’m having commitment issues where musicians are concerned, ha ha .

    Great battle, Debbie!

  2. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    You gotta be kidding me! Another tie? I congratulate you, dear friend, and I am not all that surprised because you picked two outstanding performances by artists with genuine blues chops. Of the two bonus vids offered here, I would vote for Joe killin’ it live. Rod and Jeff’s version of the Impressions’ classic “People Get Ready” didn’t bring anything new to the table and Rod’s rasp fell short of Curtis Mayfield’s smooth, soulful, tender lead vocal.

    Thank you, dear friend Debbie, and have a wonderful week!

      1. You’re right about Joe, Debbie. There are many great live performance videos to choose from. His guitar work on “Sloe Gin” made me weep and that was before he even started to sing. Softly or full force, Joe sings with feeling and maximum credibility. He has made a believer (and a fan) out of me.

        Thanks, dear friend!

          1. Holy crap!

            I listened to that live performance of “Nutbush City Limits” and couldn’t believe my eyes and ears. Beth Hart is a white Tina Turner. Her cover rivals and threatens to surpass the original. The whole band – “total aces” – as Beth describes them and, referring to partner Joe, “He means every note he plays” (and sings… I might add).

            Very exciting stuff, Debbie! Now I need to get you this excited about girly pop! 🙂

            1. I’m thrilled you’re thrilled, Shady! 😀 Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa are amazing on their own, but put them together and it’s Dy-No-Mite! (Just like Rock and Blues.) Sorry, but I’m never going to get excited about girly-pop or pop in general. Just not “my thing”, but I can certainly appreciate talent, regardless. Thanks for checking out the link.
