Cuttin' Heads: BB King
LIVE AT THE REGAL V LIVE IN COOK COUNTY JAIL
BB King’s early 70s prison album attempts to shiv his iconic ’65 Live At The Regal and replace it as top dog. We keep a look-out for the guards.
There was a now-defunct blues record shop in Lisle Street in Soho, near the old Flamingo Club,” Rolling Stone Mick Taylor told The Blues back in 2012. “All the guitarists used to go there on a Saturday morning – Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, loads of people. They used to import American blues albums and singles. One of the first albums I ever bought was Live At The Regal. That was very influential and an album that’s dear to my heart.”
