B.B. King - How Blue Can You Get? (live, 1972)

The King of Blues live at New York’s Maximum Security Prison, Sing Sing.

B.B. called it one of his greatest performances, New York’s Daily News called it one of the greatest concert moments in live entertainment:

"There was a riot at Sing Sing prison but it was a riot of music, emotion, enthusiasm and good feelings. What a day. What a concert!" Jerry Oster, New York Daily News

I saw the amazing documentary “B.B. King: The Life of Riley" yesterday which made me go all goose-pimply. So, together with the Sing Sing Prison Concert footage, this is an absolute must-see for music lovers! Enjoy!

Here’s a great photo of a live performance in Hamburg, Germany in 1971:

It was shot by Heinrich Klaffs, a freelance journalist, photographer, police reporter and editor at the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper. In 2010 he started uploading his rock, pop and jazz archive of photos to Flickr. The collection is very diverse, from Jazz Drummer Art Blakey through to The Who. Find more photos here.
