24 Nights: Blues Night

Royal Albert Hall, London, UK





Comments: First night of the legendary blues tour. as partly featured on the official "24 Nights" DVD Even the DJ explaining what's happening doesn't detract from the brilliance of this show. From EC calling out cord changes to RC stepping in seamlessly when BG breaks a string in the middle of "Five Long Years" The stereo mix is even so good you can  actually tell who is playing which solo or riff...
