Kingrue Notes:

All you BB King Fans are gonna LOVE this New Release. First Time Anywhere in Near Complete Form.

This Comes From KUOP-FM Radio Broadcast. For years only a short 35 minute version was available. A few years ago i obtained a much longer recording. The Month and Day were a Mystery, though I’ve been able to verify a date. During the show BB King mentions that the band is going to fly to Europe, the day after tomorrow. The 1985 UK tour started on July 6, 1985 in Edinburgh. By deduction that makes this Saratoga concert either on July 3rd or 4th. Depending if they landed in the UK and played that night or if they had 1 extra day to prepare for the show. I’m going with July 4th.

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.
