Oh my. Great post. Haven't seen that video before but it was just wonderful.

Man that's great. About as busy as I've ever heard B play but excellent. What a band too. Nice seeing Levy on piano.

The cameraman must have been a guitarist. Great framing of the two players in the first half of the vid.

Looks like a Fender Twin that BB was playing through.

That will drive your band crazy, modulating 1/2 step down.

BB's vibrato was insane back then. Awesome stuff there.

Wow, that was outstanding even for King.

Man, I love B.B. King. Huge influence on me.

Don't even know what to say other than -- B.B.

I used to have the whole concert on VHS. They showed it on Swedish TV at the time B.B recieved the Polar Price.
He also did a fantastic concert at that same stage (30 years later). I'm very happy to have seen him play live.

B at, perhaps, the top of his game! I love his distorted archtop early fifties stuff, and the five-piece sixties band was stupendous (see the Rhino "Jazz Casual" release!), but B was killing it in the seventies. Also the concert footage from the Rumble in the Jungle event!
That just KILLS...
thanks for posting that.
THAT's where the bar is, right there.
