BB King Live at the Regal
Paul Gambaccini is back with the award-winning series that re-visits the occasions on which a classic live album was recorded. He hears from those who were there, on-stage, backstage and in the audience, to re-create the event for all of us who, each time we play the album, think: ‘If only I could have been there’.
On 21 November 1964 what’s been hailed as one of the greatest blues albums of all time was recorded at Chicago’s premier black theatre, The Regal. It’s claimed, that musicians from Eric Clapton to John Mayer still play it for inspiration before they go on stage.
