In cooperation with the Albert King Trust, Thirsty Ear has unearthed a previously unreleased live recording, featuring the legendary blues man backed by a full horn section in one of his finest moments.

Recorded in Chicago on February 10, 1978 this performance features over 50 minutes of live music including such classics as “I'll Play the Blues for You" & “Born Under a Bad Sign". But what sets this one apart is a never before heard interview with the man himself.

Few could talk blues with more conviction than Albert King and the conversation heard here reflects his role in this rich American tradition.

Exactly a decade after his passing this recording has become a document of not only his powerful live presence, but also the intimate side of a truly legendary musician.

A must have for blues and music lovers alike.
