This past Friday April 23, the audience at The Lisner Auditorium in Washington, D.C. were witness to a most blues -worthy treat.
During that night's show by hard rockin' blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa, he was joined by a very special guest - none other than blues guitar legend Bobby Parker.
Sitting in for three powerhouse songs, the crowd was wowed by " Bobby Parker Shuffle G', "Blues Deluxe/The Sky Is Crying" and "Steal Your Heart Away", the latter Joe recorded on his brand new album 'Black Rock'.
Parker wrote and originally recorded the song, which was released in 1961 on V -Tone Records, and was suggested to Bonamassa by none other than Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant. Also recorded by The Moody Blues as their first single in 1964, the song was also one of the first songs Zeppelin played at their first ever rehearsal, almost being recorded for inclusion on the band's first album.
Here's some fan produced footage of "Steal Your Heart Away" :
