Blues Deluxe is the third studio album by American blues rock musician Joe Bonamassa, released in August, 2003 by J&R Adventures and Provogue Records.

Joe Bonamassa 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 Bonamassa 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.

Bonamassa has played alongside such artists as Stephen Stills, Eric Clapton, Blondie Chaplin, Foreigner, Buddy Guy, Steve Winwood, Warren Haynes, and Derek Trucks among others. His career highlights include performances at the Royal Albert Hall and a Grammy Award nomination in 2013 for his collaboration with Beth Hart on the duo’s sophomore album Seesaw. In addition to his music career, Joe Bonamassa runs a nonprofit organisation called the Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation, whose mission it is to further music education by funding scholarships and providing music education resources to schools in need.

There’s a reason why Joe Bonamassa is hailed as the best blues guitarist of his generation - in fact, the best guitarist of any genre of his generation. The man can play like no one else, as Blues Deluxe proves.

The album, with nine covers and three originals, shows the scope of Bonamassa's brilliant mastery of his instrument, from B.B. King's You Upset Me Baby to the pounding fury of John Lee Hooker's Burning Hell, to his update of Robert Johnson's Walking Blues. The covers range from solid to great, with the Jeff Beck group’s Blues Deluxe giving Bonamassa the most fun.

But, that's not to say Bonamassa isn't capable of writing a good song himself. The originals on the album are quite strong offerings: Woke Up Dreaming has some incredible acoustic guitar work; Bonamassa shreds up something nasty in this track that has no drums, bass or anything else beyond his voice and guitar, and doesn't feel the least bit empty because of it.

I Don't Live Anywhere, Bonamassa's second original track, begins with a nice little blues lick and contains a delicate solo that shows his masterful touch. While not the catchiest track, it's a how-to guide on blues guitar.

Then there's Mumbling Word, another acoustic track that doesn't have the fire brand finger work of Woke Up Dreaming, but is more catchy and a very nice way to end the album.

This is one of Joe's best albums. The riffs are guaranteed to stick in your head.

Check these tracks out: Woke Up Dreaming; Blues Deluxe; I Don't Live Anywhere and Burning Hell.
