Notes by the taper:
This is a short BB King show and was performed after the Cannonball show I posted earlier. The tapes starts in the middle of the song 1. The soundboard isn't quite as full sounding as the Cannonball set but still it's BB.
This is from a reel to reel master soundboard. I got a chance to transfer some great mono soundboards from reel to reels in the early 80's. This is actually a Teac reel to reel to Cassette (top of the line Yamaha TC-1000 cassette deck from the 80's) and then transferred straight to my Philips CDR-765 deck. This is as close to a master generation as possible since the reels where sent off to a never-neverland surplus probably never to see the light of day from the original source. CD Burners didn't exist yet so I had to wait until they we're available to transfer this show This is a live soundboard that may or may not have been broadcast. I think you'll be pleased with the sound quality. Again, I used the top of the line Maxell tapes and transferred this to my Philips CDR-765 deck.
