Imagine 1968 at the Fillmore in San Francisco, the epicenter of the flower power scene. Before an audience of long haired-hippies attired in day-glo and paisley, the incomparable Albert King steps on stage to deliver the gospel of down-home, Memphis-fried blues. Such is the setting for this entry in King's series of '68 Fillmore recordings (the others are Wednesday NIGHT IN SAN FRANCISCO and LIVE WIRE/BLUES POWER).
King had a good deal of cache with '60s rock audiences; his fierce, soulful leads had inspired the likes of Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, and his 1967 Stax debut BORN UNDER A BAD SIGN had achieved crossover success. Abetted by a tight backing band (generating a sound reminiscent of Booker T. and the M.G.'s), King's blend of raw, traditional blues with smooth, Stax-flavored soul hits the mark. From the jaunty, uptempo opening number "You Upset Me, Baby," through the deep, slow "Drifting Blues," to the rollicking "Ooh-Ee-Baby," King's vocals and chops are in prime form on this excellent live set.
