Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa took the music world by storm when he released his debut solo album A New Day Yesterday. Though he'd already been on the scene for years as a child prodigy and even opened for B.B. King at the age of 12. The album launched a career that, two decades later, has seen Bonamassa rise to the top of his field with most recently being named Guitar World's #1 top blues guitarist in the world. Today, the blues-rock titan announces a revamped version to be released on August 7th via J&R Adventures / Provogue, that has been completely re-sung by Bonamassa and remixed and remastered by long-time producer Kevin Shirley. The first single "Cradle Rock" out today as part of the celebration.

 

In custom Bonamassa fashion, Joe has shared a personal message to fans, straight from his "Nerdville" home. "The reason we went back and remixed it, and re-sang it, and pulled from the original masters was because I never felt like I deserved a guy like Tom Dowd to produce my first album," he confesses. "I was an infant as far as being an artist. Tom saw a little pebble in a stream, that could travel down and eventually become this nugget of gold, if you want to call it that, and he had a vision for me that I didn't see. I appreciate that and I wanted to pay tribute to him as a man who mentored me through that time. I hope you guys enjoy it."

 

He continues, "Tom Dowd was a master of everything he endeavored on. There was no second rate, there was no compromise on quality of absolutions and results. I wasn't developed enough as a musician myself to rise to his level. I certainly gave it my all and rose to the occasion grading on the curve of the musician I am today, the musician Tom always knew was inside my soul. I decided to enlist the help of another producer and mentor that has significantly impacted my life both on a personal basis and professionally, Mr. Kevin Shirley to help re-mix, re-sing and finally pay tribute to Tom as I tried to so hard to when he was alive. I have been extremely fortunate in my life to have been surrounded by two of the best most brilliant record producers anyone could have dreamed to be associated with. We included some crude demos and recordings I did at 75 Campbell Ave when I was just a teenager, and alternate versions of songs you are familiar with partly because some of the master tapes have been lost. Yes, I did say tapes. It is never lost on me how lucky I have been and continue to be by your support over these past 20 years. Enjoy the trip down memory lane... I know I did."

 

A longtime producer and collaborator, Kevin Shirley adds, "as time has gone by, Joe's vocal style, particularly, has changed enormously. He's grown from an adolescent shouter to a very mature and soulful singer. From early on in our working relationship, Joe has mentioned that he would really like to have another shot at those vocals, and asked that if he did redo them, would I remix his first solo album."
