Q is for… Quarryman’s Lament
Quarryman’s Lament is a beautiful ballad on blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa’s 2010 album Black Rock.
Recorded on the Greek island of Santorini, the song features local musicians including a bouzouki and a clarino player. Why are we telling you all this? Well, the track proves that blues is a living, breathing and constantly evolving thing. The Greek musicians add a new dimension to Joe’s blues. The result is stunning.
Speaking of which, Joe’s signature Gibson Les Paul ain’t too shabby either. It's probably out of all of our leagues budget-wise so why not head over here instead for a chance to win a Gibson Les Paul Special II signed by Joe himself!

After you’ve bagged a Robert Johnson collection, get Texas Flood, the 1983 debut album by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. The Definitive John Lee Hooker is next. A decent country blues collection would be good too.
