Full Show Friday: BB King Live 1983

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...

This month we are doing something special. As readers of RTBE know, Spring is special for us as Jazzfest is just around the proverbial corner.  So for all of the Full Show Friday's in April we will be spotlighting artists who are playing at this years festival.
To be honest we are completely underwhelmed by this years lineup and I doubt we stick around for any of the headliners except for the closing Sunday, so listening to these shows will do us all better then the mile long cab line. 

This week we are getting down with the one the only ... BB King!

Unreal that we will be missing one of our favorite guitarists of all time at the Festival, how did we screw this up by going down the second weekend? You just know for damn certain that BB will be the talk of the Blues Tent stage for this years festival. Well he will light it up next Sunday, but you get to watch him here from 1983 and he is on fire.

Nick's Uptown in Dallas must have been quiet a jumping joint on that night, from the first notes of "Nightlife" you can tell it is going to be lip smacking good.  An Elvis cover next that sounds semi silly until that sweet sax comes in.  Enjoy...and its not too late to head down to Jazzfest one of the weekends....
