The Fillmore Ballroom in San Francisco was renowned for its acid drenched nights of psychedelic debauchery in the late 60s. The list of artists who passed (or passed out) through its doors is a veritable who's who of 60s rock. But besides The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe &The Fish and a host of other rock names, the Fillmore and its audience of blissed-out love children were occasionally treated to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and, as featured here, Albert King. In 1968 Stax Records culled an album from 2 live shows that King performed for the daytrippers-.-that album was Live Wire, Blues Power(CDSXE 022/SXE 022) and it featured a bunch of tunes that Albert King had not released previously. Recently Bill Belmont (who by the way looked after said C.J.& Fish) at Fantasy Records unearthed then original multi-tracks and found a whole wealth of great unissued performances of what amounts to a best of Albert King - "I Get Evil", "Personal Manager", "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Crosscut Saw" - very live wire, immense blues power.
