Mascot Label Group and Provogue Records are excited to announce the re-issue of Grammy Nominated singer/songwriter Beth Hart's hit albums - Bang Bang Boom Boom, Fire On The Floor, and Better Than Home - available for the first time on transparent vinyl limited to 500 copies each.
Bang Bang Boom Boom was originally released in 2012 as the follow-up to the highly successful soul-rock covers album Don't Explain, a collaboration with blues sensation Joe Bonamassa. The album features 11 original Beth Hart tracks recorded live by Kevin Shirley, and is an artistic statement that hits the bullseye, delivering on Beth's fizzing potential and finding her at peace with herself and looking to the future.
"This album was where I found a new voice," explains Beth. "This album helped chart new places for me to go sonically and felt like a whole new start for me."
Bang Bang Boom Boom gives Beth's eclectic influences free rein, spinning from "Spirit Of God"'s brassy gospel to the sparse "Thru The Window Of My Mind", with her first-ever piano solo on "Swing My Thing Back Around", and an impossibly tender vocal on the Billie Holiday-flavored "Baddest Blues".
Big band ('Swing My Thing Around'), gospel laced R&B ('Spirit of God') and reggae ('The Ugliest House on the Block') keep the set varied while focusing on Hart's tough, throaty vocals. Still, she uses that powerful instrument to best effect on dramatic, arena filling ballads such as the opening 'Baddest Blues' and the aggressive 'Better Man.' Look no further than the seven minute slow blues burner 'Caught Out in the Rain' to realize how effectively Hart shifts from vulnerable chanteuse to brassy Joplin inspired flamethrower in the same verse.
