An­other year, an­other re­lease from Smokin’ Joe B, and now 13 solo al­bums in you should know the drill. A smor­gas­bord of best-of-blues’ broad and dis­tinct forms, from the big band-backed schmalz on King Bee Shake­down, to the Jimmy Page homage on the grand Evil Mama and ne­far­i­ous coun­try pick­ing of The Ghost Of Ma­con Jones, Re­demp­tion’s com­pi­la­tion feel won’t be for ev­ery­one. But for those who ap­pre­ci­ate blues-rock guitar at its gen­uine peak as well a knack for song­writ­ing that con­sis­tently hits the mark, then Joe is still your man.
