Here's something brand new for all the BB King fans.
Even though this is a 2nd generation copy, this is as good as we'll get on this and it does sound really good.
If Scott would have told me this was a master, I would have believed him. This 2nd gen is a fine quality recording.
The rare song in this set is the rarely played "Your Letter".
The song starts off as an instrumental and then "Your Letter" lyrics starts at 5:13 min mark,
then finishes with "Nobody Loves But My Mother".
Opening act was the James Cotton Band. I don't know if that was recorded.
I don't have much more to say about this recording,
besides that after 30 years, it's finally being flac'd and can now be enjoyed by all the blues fans here.
Recording notes:
Track 1 starts in progress.
Track 8 starts in progress.
