Full Show Friday: BB King and Friends 4/15/87

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us 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 week.. BB King & Friends!

The world lost a great one when BB King passed away earlier in 2015. We wanted to celebrate his life and this show from 1987 is an excellent capturing from LA on a night where his "friends" joined him. It was a murders row of contributors.  

The hour long show is packed with people from the pop, blues, soul world ready to help the legend out (you can see the list below). Our personal highlights are the Etta James/Dr. John "I'd Rather Go Blind"  (really anything Etta sings) and the cooking "Let the Good Times Roll", but honestly this whole show it pretty dynamite. 

While we have used Mr. King as a Full Show Friday in the past, we never really talked about his passing much and this show can do the talking for us.
