Product Description:

LIVE AT THE ELECTRIC BALLROOM, 1974 contains an interview and the only known live, acoustic recording of Freddie King.
Recorded at the Electric Ballroom, Atlanta, Georgia in 1974.
This Atlanta concert wasn't issued in recorded form for two decades. Archival releases of this sort tend to be for collectors only, but this is a cut above the standard. The sound is very good, the band is pretty tight, and Freddie King solos with fire and sings with conviction, sticking mostly to covers of warhorses like "Dust My Broom," "Key to the Highway," and "Sweet Home Chicago." It's a better deal, in fact, than his studio albums for Shelter in the early '70s, boasting a no-frills small-combo approach that is far more suitable. As a neat bonus, it also contains two solo acoustic performances recorded at a Dallas radio station in the 1970s. ~ Richie Unterberger
