Full Show Friday: Robert Cray Live in 2008

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...Robert Cray!

Our focus this month in our ongoing Masters series are The Blues

One of the people we almost put on the list for our top five favorite Blues studio albums, but just missed the cut was Robert Cray and his brilliant 1986 record Strong Persuader. Robert Christgau clued us into this record and it is some excellent blues work, especially from a time when things were getting a bit wonky...the eighties.

One of those tunes makes an appearance at today's show with "Right Next Door (Because of Me)" but this whole show proves how polished Cray still is. A really cool night of tunes from 2008 for some clean and crisp blues playing from the band. Pro Shot, pro sound with full set list, times, and band info below.
