The three-time GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock superstar and 25x Billboard chart-topper JOE BONAMASSA has released a mind-blowing live rendition of “Mind’s Eye,” one of the standout tracks from his most recent studio album ‘Time Clocks.’
The stunning visual backdrop created by the legendary Kevin Shirley enhanced the psychedelic influences of the song track, which is included on the musician’s sprawling and expansive live concert film and album, Tales Of Time, which was recorded at the breathtaking Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.
The live video captures the blues-rock legend’s soaring performance, his superb guitar playing, and distinctive technique and bravura-laden flair for both the meticulous and the sublime!

At the time of the song’s release, we described ‘Mind’s Eye’ as ‘existential’ and, further, we said, ‘Lucid in tone and nature, with a clearheaded sway with sapphire tones and nuzzling textures […] brooding, vulnerable, and more fallible than we’ve heard from Joe before…’
‘Tales Of Time’ will be released on 4/14 via Bonamassa’s J&R Adventures in CD/DVD, CD/BR, vinyl, and digital formats.

The live album will be distributed in the UK and Europe by Provogue/ Mascot Label Group.
“The song has a very Pink Floyd feel,” commented Roy Weisman, CEO of Bonamassa’s J&R Adventures label, upon the song’s original release. “The whole ‘Time Clocks’ record is about a journey, and ‘Mind’s Eye’ gives you a fun glimpse of what could be swimming around inside someone’s mind.”
The release of “Mind’s Eye” (see video below) coincides with the launch of Bonamassa’s U.S. Spring Tour 2023. The Spring tour will conclude with Bonamassa’s Keeping The Blues Alive at Sea VIII, set for March 13-17, departing from Miami, Florida to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. The festival line-up includes legendary artists like Little Feat, Dion, Bobby Rush, Robert Randolph Band, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Jimmy Vivino, and more.
Bonamassa and his long-time manager Roy Weisman recently launched Journeyman LLC, a full-service artist management, record label, concert promotion, and marketing company that builds awareness for independent artists worldwide. Journeyman provides the infrastructure needed to jumpstart the careers of exceptional independent artists, who are too often overlooked by the major labels or concert promoters while circumventing the resistance of typical “gatekeepers” who don’t support indie acts.
