BB King, Larry Carlton, James Brown, Bill Withers in Africa, 1974. Oh yes.

Found this today:



-A film about the concert that coincided with Ali v Foreman in Africa.

Those of you who have seen 'When we were Kings' will know what I'm talking about.

BB is on at 54:00. Larry Carlton in the background on rhythm.

Larry with the Crusaders is at the hour mark.

Enjoy!

They've been playing it on Palladia for the last few months. Love me some Larry during his Crusaders period and what can you say about BB and JB that hasn't already been said? Celia Cruz is on there too. She's amazing.

Interesting fact: part of it was filmed by Albert Maysles, the guy that filmed the Beatles first trip to America in 1964 and filmed "Gimme Shelter" in 1969...great cinematographer.
