Live in the 70s
While there are several excellent live Albert King albums available, this 2014 release is one that should not be overlooked. This is a compilation of four several different shows and venues. There is a lack of detail on personnel and the sources of these recordings.
From the Fillmore East in 1971, we get strong performances of "Blues Power," 'Crosscut Saw," and "Personal Manager." King is certainly in good voice, and his pinched note guitar is in force as well. There are five selections for The Forum in Hollywood from 1972 with sterling performances of "Angel of Mercy," "Oh Pretty Woman," "Breaking Up Somebody's Home," and "Stormy Monday." From St. Charles, Illinois in 1974, King does "Born Under a Bad Sign" and his interpretation of Ray Charles' "I Believe To My Soul." Finally, we go to The Double Door in Chicago, where Albert digs deep in "I'll Play the Blues With You."
Sound is very good at the minimum, and with the riffing Horns and the strong support from his backing bands, King sang and played out some first-rate blues.
I purchased this. Here is Albert King in 1981.
