I’m not by any means knowledgeable about the blues or B.B. King, except to say that he’s one of the masters. After listening to his new album a bit, I thought I would sling a show from 1971 into the ether. I’ve not yet given it a full listen so I can’t say much. What I have heard sounds good and is sick.

  1. sorry i was wrong track missing is Disc 2 Track 2 “Everyday I Have The Blues” also there are 2 track # 9 band intros of diff size, Mat thanks for the fine listenin and responding


  2. Ok. I don’t seem to have “Everyday I Have the Blues.” It must have not been on the original files I received. Sorry about that I looked but couldn’t find.

    My best guess about the intros is that one belongs to the early show. I can’t say which one for sure as all the information I have doesn’t contain a band intro for the earl show, but it doesn’t make sense that he’d do two in the late set and none in the first.
