For the first time anywhere, here's a new BB King to enjoy.

This is the only recording I've ever seen to come out of the Candlewood Playhouse.

The quality is really good on this one. Somebody sure had some good taping gear for this show.

This post is really important and means a lot to me. I hope it does to you blues fans too.

This recording as been in the back of my mind for 13 years, for that's how long I had to wait to finally obtain a copy of this.

Just by luck befriending BR, who had many recordings I had been searching for.

This being a rare BB show from 1983, makes this even more special. This isn't just another show from the 90's or post 2000.

This has a couple rare tracks played, 'Parting Time' and 'Somebody To Call My Own'.

After 'All Over Again', the band goes into an outro fanfare, which they normally save for the end of the show.

Then BB goes into the next song and they keep playing. The band does 2 more songs and sadly the tape runs out.

Since this is the late show, I'm sure BB played 85-90 minutes. We're probably missing the last 10 minutes.

I'm okay with that, since I waited so many years to get this, I'm glad that I have this much.

Looking through my collection, I found ticket stubs that I've owned for a few years. I've included a scan of those tickets.

As some of you know, I'm dealing with a hearing problem and I'm trying to post shows that are already finished,

since I can't safely edit shows anymore, unless I wear ear plugs in both ears while i edit and that can work for me,

but It's still difficult to figure out set lists if I have to listen for the lyrics, which is just too difficult to do anymore.

I saw this BB show sitting on my HD and thought now is a good time to post this.
