The sequel to a well-received 1974 album, TOGETHER AGAIN?LIVE features the two veteran bluesmen (who first played together as members of the Beale Streeters, the legendary early-'50s Memphis group) trading licks (guitar and vocal) on a nice selection of some of their signature tunes, including King's "Everyday I Have the Blues" and Bland's "Stormy Monday." These old pros clearly relish playing off each other, and the atmosphere is decidedly relaxed and informal (check out the verbal horseplay on "Mother-In-Law Blues"). The end result isn't the deepest blues ever recorded, but it's still good down home, rowdy fun.
