Album Notes
Joe Richardson is one of the riegning master harmonica, guitar, and dobro players. His powerful vocals and prolific songwriting truly complete the picture of a gifted communicator. Joe captures his audiece from the first moment on stage and holds them spellbound, set after set. Although Austin fans now claim Joe as their own, it comes as no surprise that his soulful blues-based stylings find roots in the misty bayous of Louisiana. The passionate energy and fiery performance that pours from Joe and so gratifies his audience comes from years of loving appreniceship with the down-home street singers and blues legends around Lafayette and New Orleans. In fact, he had been playing bars, topless bars, and juke joints with these giants since the young age of thirteen.

"Way Beyond the Blues" is the new release from the Joe Richardson Express released on Viewpoint Records. Produced by Joe himself, this cd captures the vibrance of live Joe, something subtly missing from earlier releases. This project was mixed and mastered at Two Coves Studio in Austin, Texas. Mixed by the king of live sound, Steven Allen and Mastered by several time grammy winner Dave McNair (SRV, Buddy Guy, Los Super 7...).

"Joe appears to have the ability to breathe new life into the Blues idiom, no mean feat. The songs are very good, moving away from hackneyed, clicked styles without really straying from the heart of the Blues. Coupled to this, his voice conveys the Blues feeling without sounding affected in any way. I find that many Blues artists are tremendous instrumentalists, but very poor singers and songwriters, deffinately not the case with this guy.
His guitar playing is exemplary also."
Philip Knipe, Radio KLFM

"Joe Richardson is the real thing. You can't learn what Joe does. He evolved from the specific environment of the swamps and marshes of Louisiana. It's in his blood!"
Uncle John Turner (Johnny Winter)

Exerpts from fan letters:

......Your mastery of the blues is very motivating and stirs the soul. I was traveling cross-country on motorcycles with my dad. Several weeks ago, we popped into Joe's Generic Bar and listened to your band for hours. You were phenomenal. Please let me know if you ever drop in Atlanta. I would love to hear you guys perform again and would bring others to hear your great sounding guitar.
Jeff Skop

Dear Mr. "Medicine Man" Richardson,
I heard the sound of your band when I visited Joe's ....I was impressed so much. I have been looking for your CD at shop in Japan but regretfully I couldn't find it anywhere.
...Tell me if you have a schedule to come over here, Japan...I would like to hear your sounds not just by CD, direct to my ears again.

WAWAWAW ! I wish the whole concert was dedicated to them.
I saw these guys on stage in Toulouse (France) before the Chuck-Berry part... Oh my ! they rocked sooo much . Hearty singer, tremendous player, hollow walking bass... and one of the best drummers i ever saw on stage (i had the chance to congrats him live after the concert !)
The concert sounded silent, weird, when they left place to let old-chuck enter. It was great to see him... but all the brilliance was gone (rithm and chorus also).

When i got back home, I ordered first and last CD of JRE (not the Java Runtime Env. ;-) ) on CD Baby and it was fairly good delivered ! Damn i love that !

saw the movie "In The Shadow Of The Blade". wanted to get cd with the song from the soundtrack. was disappointed the wrong cd was shipped. still don't have the right one even though have written cd baby twice about the situation. seems they don't want to reply.

Swampy, slide rich jewel from the Joe Richardson Express
Of all the new material that I have previewed in the past many months, this recording is by far my personal favorite. "Way Beyond the Blues" is a wonderful showcase of both Richardson's diverse influences and outstanding musical talents. The recording bears a strong electric delta blues likeness while at the same time remaining fresh and original. There is a considerable Mississippi juke joint influence evident throughout the recording, as wll as a goodly dose of Texas blues.
