I only recently got into JB. I bought; Ballad Of John Henry and Dust Bowl.
Plus a couple of DVDs; Royal Albert hall and Live At Rockpalast. Also bought his Signature Sounds and Techniques DVD.

Love John Henry CD and Royal Albert DVD in particular.

So my question is, which of his other CD's should I buy next?
Happy to buy 2 or 3, as I'm really enjoying discovering his music, so which of his other albums do you guys think are his best work?

Thanks in advance.:aok

I think of myself as a fan but frankly am not nuts about his studio stuff in general, it's the live stuff that i enjoy. I actually like his live tone better, again in general. Stop! Is an exception on both counts. When i listen, it's Rockpalast, Albert Hall, Live From Nowhere... and random youtube stuff like with Beth Hart or at Baked Potato.

Live from nowhere in particular and Sloe Gin.
Sloe gin has some heavier, down and dirty blues. It's also a great sounding album.
Black Rock is a cool album. It was recorded in Greece and has some really cool and different instrumentation played by locals on a couple of songs.

Could never stand the bloodline stuff, and it's not really representative of Joe B to me.

I would agree with 'Live from Nowhere in Particular' as being an essential one. His live rendition of 'Sloe Gin' on that album is about one of my all time favourite songs...

For a bit of variation, I would get the two Black Country Communion albums... Joe puts on his 'rock' hat for those...

that's got Berry Oakley Jr. on bass and vocals and Warren Haynes on lead & slide guitars, along with Joe B. on lead as well.
Bugger! Didn't know that. I was very tempted to get Bloodline, as Yngtchie suggested it as essential listenin. Might have to bite the bullet.

I did say I was happy to get 2/3:bonk

The only cd I have is Dust Bowl, and I don't really love it for some reason.

His Royal Albert Hall DVD is great, though. Can't wait to see him in May.....10th row!!
