"Live Wire / Blues Power" [live
@ The Fillmore Auditorium, San Francisco sommaren 1968]
throws a curveball with the opener, a boogaloo-tinged rendition
of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man." "Blues
Power," in its spoken, call-and-response interludes and
King's stinging electric leads, testifies to the redemptive
strength of the form. The high-energy overdrive of "Nightstomp,"
complete with slightly distorted amplification, seems suited
to the young revelers one imagines in the audience that evening,
and the deeply soulful "Blues at Sunrise" shows
off some of King's best fretwork. All told, this is a stellar
set from one of blues' most influential and appealing figures."
