Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit songs Product Information
Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit album for sale by Tab Benoit was released Apr 03, 2012 on the Telarc (Label) label. Tab Benoit's brand of sharp Louisiana swamp blues is all his own, and for some 20 years now (his first album, Nice & Warm, was released by Vanguard Records in 1993) he's been putting it down with refreshing commitment and precision. This solid compilation is drawn from his later albums for Telarc Records (he's released ten albums for Telarc, dating back to 1998), and with tracks like the churning and chugging "Muddy Bottom Blues," a live ten-minute version of "Bayou Boogie" (a speed boogie that blazes and then flies like a tidal wave), and a subtly rewritten version of Stephen Stills' "For What It's Worth" that brings it all home to Louisiana, this set makes for a great introduction to one of the best young blues players out there. Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit CD music contains a single disc with 14 songs. ...See Full Description

Blues Deluxe CD (2003) Top Seller
Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit songs As the electric guitar ace Joe Bonamassa was so strongly inspired by blues and blues-oriented six-stringers (i.e., Clapton, Johnny Winter), many of his fans would politely pester him about doing a disc of blues standards. Originally done as a lark, the results of such a session were deemed by Bonamassa good enough to be released--hence, BLUES DELUXE, on which he covers some lesser-known songs and includes three originals. Of course, his fierce, scorching guitar is center stage. If axe-men such as Peter Green, Rory Gallagher, and Buddy Guy are your cup of tea, this DELUXE item is a necessity.

Black Rock CD (2010) Top Seller
Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit buy CD music It's a sign of Joe Bonamassa's increasing profile that he got blues legend B.B. King to guest on his eighth album Black Rock -- and if what you're doing is good enough to rope B.B. in, there's not much reason to change, so Bonamassa doesn't tinker with his formula here, retaining a little of the folky undertow of The Ballad of John Henry, but with its remaining roots in a thick, heavy blues-rock more redolent of `60s London than the `50s Delta. Of course, Bonamassa has never shied away from his love of Brit-blues, even underscoring it with a good streamlined cover of Jeff Beck's "Spanish Boots," but he retains a healthy respect for all manners of classic blues, kicking out a Chicago groove on a cover of Otis Rush's "Three Times a Fool," reaching back to Blind Boy Fuller for "Baby You Gotta Change Your Mind" and ably replicating B.B.'s latter-day soul groove on a horn-smacked cover of Willie Nelson's "Night Life." Bonamassa has an ear for non-blues writers too, cherrypicking Leonard Cohen's "Bird on a Wire" and John Hiatt's "I Know a Place," tying it all together with beefy lead lines, but the provocative moments on Black Rock are all self-penned, whether it's the clattering stomp "When the Fire Hits the Sea," the British folk lilt of "Quarryman's Lament" and "Athens to Athens," or the droning dramatic epic "Blue and Evil." These are easily the most intriguing songs here, suggesting Bonamassa realizes that the familiar covers allow him to stretch out elsewhere, and while it might be interesting hearing him follow this path for a full album, what's here on Black Rock is both satisfying and admirably, if reservedly, ambitious. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Already Free CD (2009) Top Seller
Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit CD music Derek Trucks started out as a young guitar prodigy playing alongside his uncle Butch in the Allman Brothers Band, but began following his own path in the late 1990s. ALREADY FREE is the result of a decade-plus spent sharpening his skills and growing his soul. It's probably his loosest, warmest, funkiest offering to date. While it's not markedly different from the Southern-tinged blues-rock of his earlier albums, ALREADY FREE nevertheless mines an altogether greasier groove. The album leans heavily on an old-school Southern soul aesthetic, and the spirit of both Memphis and Muscle Shoals can be heard in much of the material here, whether Trucks and company are adding some Southern grit to Bob Dylan's "Down in the Flood" or getting down the to the groove of one of their blues-rocking originals.

|Fever for the Bayou CD (2005)
Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit album for sale Tab Benoit's latest release on Telarc, Fever for the Bayou, continues in what has become Benoit's signature territory, a funky, ragged blend of Louisiana swamp blues and East Texas guitar, with hints of funk, soul, and country thrown in to give the gumbo just the right spice. If it sounds like a formula, well, Benoit's jagged guitar playing and increasingly soulful vocals make it clear that this is the music he loves, so it hardly matters. He touches a lot of bases here, including an eerie approximation of Elmore James' slide sound on a cover of James' "I Can't Hold Out" (which also features some cool tenor sax work from Jimmy Carpenter), then conjures Buddy Guy on Guy's "I Smell a Rat," fires up on the old Slim Harpo chestnut "Got Love if You Want It," and tears through a wonderfully swampy take on Levon Helm's "Blues So Bad" before ending things with an acoustic version of Clarence Williams' "My Bucket's Got a Hole in It" (made famous by another Williams, Hank Williams Sr.). Cyril Neville guests on two tracks, "The Blues Is Here to Stay" and "Little Girl Blues," while Big Chief Monk Boudreaux contributes and sings a delightful Mardi Gas chant called "Golden Crown." But the strongest tracks are all Benoit originals, including the fiery opener, "Night Train," the Stax-by-way-of-New Orleans stunner "Lost in Your Lovin'" (which shows that Benoit is as much a singer as he is a guitarist), and the voodoo swagger of "Fever for the Bayou." It's not just that Benoit plays the blues with a primal punch and more than a hint of grace and soul, it's that he has a vision for it, and grounds it in both time and place, which means that he isn't just another Stratocaster gunslinger, but an American original. It's time for people to catch up and discover this guy. ~ Steve Leggett

|Night Train to Nashville CD (2008)
Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit CD music With performances culled from a volcanic two-night stand in Nashville in 2007, NIGHT TRAIN TO NASHVILLE confirms what blues insiders have known for a long time: Tab Benoit is the real deal. Hot on the heels of winning the 2006 B.B. King Entertainer of the Year award, Benoit ripped through these 11 keepers with an array of star guests from across the American roots firmament. Jim Lauderdale appears on the sensually nostalgic "Moon Coming Over the Hill" while set closer "Stackolina" features cajun fiddler/washboardist Waylon Thibodeaux and Fabulous Thunderbirds singer Kim Wilson. The star of the show though, naturally, is Benoit, who with the nastiest of telecaster licks, cements his status as the Louisianian swamp blues answer to Stevie Ray Vaughn.

|Medicine CD (2011) Top Seller
Legacy: The Best of Tab Benoit buy CD music This is the usually prolific Louisiana guitarist Tab Benoit's first studio album in nearly four years, and although all his releases are top shelf, this one is slightly better. He teams up with New Orleans transplant Anders Osborne, who not only plays second guitar (press notes say B.B. King's famous "Lucille" was used for these sessions) but also co-writes seven of the eleven songs. Other high-profile bandmembers include Ivan Neville, Beausoleil's Michael Doucet, and drummer Brady Blade. In addition, noted roots producer David Z. recorded the project, bringing even more high wattage talent to the proceedings. Since 2003, Benoit has been an active spokesman and president for the Voice of the Wetlands environmental organization so, not surprisingly, the subject matter of some of the material leans toward the state of the bayou. That's especially true in "A Whole Lotta Soul," where Benoit sings "what you gonna tell the spirit/when the heart of the bayou bleeds" and "In It to Win It" that leads off with the line "I was born inside this Delta." Musically, Benoit sticks to his patented blend of soul, rock, blues, and Cajun, often mixed in the same song. His voice has attained a lived-in grit, always present but now somewhat accentuated by production that is spacious yet full. The electric set includes one unplugged tune; "Long Lonely Bayou" features just Benoit on acoustic and Doucet on fiddle. It's a highlight that finds the singer sounding as torn and frayed as the bluesmen who have been such a large part of his influences. He goes pure soul-blues on Toussaint McCall's slow dance classic "Nothing Takes the Place of You," this disc's Otis Redding-styled '60s entry, and rips into the lyric with tearful regret nearly equal to the original. The lovely and passionately sung Osborne-Benoit tune "Sunrise" treads similar territory. The closing zydeco rhythm of "Mudboat Melissa" allows both Doucet and Benoit to open up and solo against a festive, driving Louisiana backbeat. But the album's most riveting moment is arguably its opening title track, where Benoit and band tear into a tough, grinding, stomping blues-rocker that builds tension as it progresses and finds both guitarists unleashing slashing riffs on a song that might be Benoit's most powerful recorded performance. While nothing after quite tops it, lots comes close, making this one of the guitarist's finest overall efforts and well worth the extended wait. ~ Hal Horowitz
