BB King, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy & More: Monterey Jazz Festival 1967 Master SB Reels

BB King, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy & More: Monterey Jazz Festival 1967 (Master Soundboard Reels) FLAC

OK Blues Fans, here's a special treat. BB King playing with his idol (T-Bone Walker) on BB's birthday at the Monterey Jazz Festival 9-16-67. The set starts off with T-Bone Walker doing what he does best. Next, is a nice set of BB King with the last 2 songs joined by T-Bone Walker which BB claims is his idol. During the second track with T-Bone, BB totally messes up the introductions...sounds like he's nervous playing with T-Bone. As a bonus I've included The great Otis Rush playing in a trio format at the Prague Jazz festival with Chicago legends Fred Below and Jack Myers and Buddy Guy and Junior Wells from the same venue. I have no other date just the 1966 year for those sets. This is all the complete shows of these concerts that I have.
This is from Reel to Reel Masters. My friend and I got a chance to transfer some great mono soundboards from Reel to Reels in the early 80's. This is actually a Teac Reel to Reel to Cassette (top of the line Yamaha TC-1000 cassette deck from the 80's) and then transferred straight to my Philips CDR-765 deck. This is as close to a 1 generation as possible since the reels where sent of to never never land surplus probably never to see the light of day from the original source. CD Burners didn't exist yet so I had to wait until they we're available to transfer this show This is a live soundboard that may or may not have been broadcast. The sound quality speaks for itself. Running time is about 70 minutes.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I have over the years.

More Information

This is some of the greatest blues from the 1960s. The duet between BB and T-Bone ending up with Sweet Sixteen is brilliant - even better when you see the video on YouTube

I have to correct some of the other information however

The Otis Rush and Junior Wells tracks are from the 1966 American Folk Blues Festival tour. So the guitarist is not Buddy Guy but is Otis Rush, almost certainly using the Gibson 335 (or similar) that he used on that tour. Listen again and the fluid playing is exactly in line with the other AFBF recordings and is not in the edgy style of Buddy Guy. I am 100% certain of this

Country Girl is one of my all time favourite recordings and was broadcast on radio. I have posted a version of this (which I recorded from radio late one night in 1966) with poor sound on YouTube because I thought people deserved to hear it. I wasn't aware that a better recording existed

Thanks very much for providing this material
