I was given a show at the Derek trucks soul stew revival (thanks Cowboy Neill). I think it is a live show from Chicago. Anyway, it smokes. PM me your address and I will mail you a copy.

There is a good official live album called something like "Wednesday Night In San Francisco."
He is also on the cool JOhn Mayall DVD called "Blues ALive" or "Jamming with the Blues Greats." I get a real kick out of that one; it is from 1982, when Mayall reunited the Bluesbreakers with Mick Taylor and JOhn McVie. They have guest spots by BUddy Guy, Jr Wells, ALbert King, Etta James, and SIppie Wallace. Good stuff.

Albert King - guitar, vocals
David Hood - bass
Barry Beckett - keyboards
Roger Hawkins - drums

Standing at 6'4", Albert King - also known as "The Velvet Bulldozer" - was the first great blues musician to ever play the Fillmores, so it is fitting that he join the festivities on the Fillmore East's closing night.

King's influence can be easily recognized in the playing of many of the great 1960s rock guitarists, particularly Mike Bloomfield, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. His unorthodox techniques and tunings influenced countless others over the years, notably Stevie Ray Vaughan, whose slower blues numbers directly reflect a deep respect for Albert King.

By 1971, King was widely accepted as a primary innovator of modern blues, and his late 60s output for Stax Records had earned him a substantially larger audience than many of his contemporaries. Although his recorded output often reflected the changes in modern music, in performance he stayed relatively close to his blues roots.

This set reflects a particularly interesting time in his career. Backed by musicians who would soon join up with Stevie Winwood to become the next incarnation of Traffic, this performance showcases King's traditional roots as well as his open-minded interest in contemporary music. Of particular note is his early 1960's Stax classic "Crosscut Saw." You may notice a striking similarity to Cream's "Strange Brew,




you'll probably have to register,no big deal, but the show is the same nite as the ABB closed the Fillmore East

Is "Don't Burn Down The Bridge" on that one? I've got a couple of live Albert CDs with that song on them, but they're different versions (and, to me, not nearly as powerful) than the one I have on a Tomato label double live LP.

There are two...one's Wednesday Night In San Francisco and the other is Thursday Night In San Francisco.

I have quite a few of his live albums out on CD. There is a Tomato(rereleased by Rhino) one that is out on CD just called Live. There is a 2 disc one called Blues From the Road. Wednesday Night in SF is good and there is also a Thursday Night in SF. To go along with Blues at Sunrise there is also one called Blues at Sunset. Live 69(also by Tomato) is pretty good too. There is also one put on the Charley label from Chicago 1978. It is okay. The best of the lot or most famous one has to be Live Wire/Blues Power though. I'd start with that one personally.

Just be careful though as there is one release from him called Crosscut Saw: Albert King in San Francisco. This is actually a studio album.

Great DVD! I always chuckle when Albert comes out with his own bass player. John McVie kind of gets pushed into the background.
