Big Bill MOrganfield
King Biscuit Blues Festival
October 8, 2011
Helena, AR USA

Location: 100 ft from stage just left of SB
Lineage: AM1's(8' high)>CA st20M preamp>NJB3>Audacity (normalize)>CDWave(tracking)>FLAC

Notes: I was a little late getting to the festival this day so I missed a few minutes on the front end of this show. I had seen Big Bill at Memphis in May earlier this year and knew it was going to be good at KBBF. The sound is soooo much better than the blues tent @ MIM. And Big Bill is not resting on the accomplishments of his father, Muddy Waters. He is setting his own direction. It is sho' 'nuff the blues!

The setlist is incomplete but I have done my best. A little help from the field................

King Biscuit Blues Festival
October 6-8, 2011
Helena, AR

This year I caught most of the mainstage acts, as listed, with one of two set ups. Both yielded very good results but I defer to you to let me know how well this came out. Your comments are appreciated.

What I would like is for you to help me prioritize how I release these shows to the DIME. What is your interest? I have limited time so if there is soemthing you want let me know. I can do these in any order. I did get Paul Thorn out first as this show was one of many highlights of the festival. I highly encourage anyone who love music, especially blues, to plan to be in Helena next year October 4, 5,& 6, 2012. It is a great three days!
