Blues Power

Happy Boxing Day, everyone!

Still under the weather, but definitely better than yesterday.  Thank you to everyone who checked in the past few days. It meant a lot. :c) And what better way to get over the post-Christmas lethargy, whether flu- or tryptophan-induced, than with some primo Texas blues?

The first helping comes from December 1983, courtesy of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert King:

You can see the awe on Stevie Ray's face as he listens to King. Even legends have heroes. :c)

And here's Albert on his own in 1968, from Live Wire Blues Power, one of the greatest live blues albums of all time:

Incidentally, the other acts on the bill this night: John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers *and* Jimi Hendrix. Clearly I was born too late!
