Live at the Regal’ (1965). King had already been an R&B star for a dozen years by the time of his first live album, recorded in 1964 in Chicago - and that meant that he could appeal to his audience's nostalgia. Between songs, he keeps telling the crowd that now he's going to "go back. Live in Cook County Jail’ (1971). If you want to hear everything a . King guitar performance can be, you may as well start here. After whipping through his customary show-opener, "Every Day I Have the Blues," with breakneck impatience, King lays into "How Blue Can You Get?" As befits the show's jailhouse setting, King's guitar is occasionally at its most abrasive. Live in Japan’ (1971). In 1971, King recorded one of his finest live albums, Live in Cook County Jail; and one of his most disappointing, Live in London, a collaboration with British bluesmen and rockers that never gets cooking.

The album is known for lots of great stage banter, and whooping by audience members during songs (great audience interplay here!), and BB King invites it all with his quaint onstage chat. And now ladies and gentlemen, we would like to go back and sort of reminisce just a little bit, and pick up some of the real old blues.

Live in Japan est album de Deep Purple. Ce triple CD reprend presqu'en intégralité les 3 concerts de la tournée japonaise du groupe en 72, ceux-là même qui ont servi de base a l'enregistrement du mythique live Made in Japan. Pour être tout à fait complet sur ce qui manque exactement, le Smoke on the Water du 15 a été supprimé, de même que The Mule du 17. Ces 2 versions sont celles du Made in Japan. Les autres chansons qui ne figurent pas dans le coffret sont Black Night et Lucille les rappels du concert du 16 aout, Black Night et Speed King les rappels du concert du 17 aout.
