Live Wire/Blues Power is one of Albert King's definitive albums. Recorded live at the Fillmore Auditorium in 1968, the guitarist is at the top of his form throughout the record -- his solos are intense and piercing. The band is fine, but ultimately it's King's show -- he makes Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" dirty and funky and wrings out all the emotion from "Blues at Sunrise."

 (EXCERPT FROM AN ONLINE REVIEW BY THOM OWENS, ALL MUSIC GUIDE  /ALLMUSIC.COM/)

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

When this album was released in the winter of 1968, Albert King was rubbing shoulders with the best of them, jamming on- and off stage with the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Booker T & The MGs, Steve Miller Band, Quicksilver Mesenger Service, and a slew of others...Jimi Hendrix went out of his way to pay hosannas to The King, who was at the time riding high following the phenomenal success of his "Born under the bad sign" album. This live album captures Albert King at his prime, surrounded by the worshipping audience which simply inhales (in more ways than one) each and every note he plays. This album was recorded at a legendary Fillmore West auditorium in San Francisco, and the acoustics of the venue come through loud and clear. The sound is thick, stinging, biting, occasionally drenched in fuzz. No wonder he was one of Jimi Hendrix' main idols. A pivotal - literally and figuratively speaking - blues album, not to be missed. One of two or three defining moments of the modern, electric, urban blues. Much harder to find on the original pressing than you may think!

<![if !supportLists]>·                               <![endif]>CONDITION:

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>·                               <![endif]>THE RECORD

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we  grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>(a)          <![endif]>WE GRADE THE VINYL  AS  (WEAK) NEAR MINT. Some VERY LIGHT AND SUPERFICIAL abrasions – mostly sleeve scuffs -  are (barely) visible, but are probably inaudible,  and do not affect visual integrity or beauty of the vinyl. The original luster is very much intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>(b)          <![endif]>The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>(c)           <![endif]>Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>·                               <![endif]>THE COVER

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

THE COVER IS ABOUT VERY GOOD+(+)

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>-         <![endif]>Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and  10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 4  (front side) and 3 (back side)

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>-         <![endif]>Cover shows some light yellowing on back side, apparently from aging  (nothing significant).

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>-         <![endif]>Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered sections, which closely follow the contour of the record),  probably caused by friction or by rubbing against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>-         <![endif]>Cover has a few wrinkles along the spine

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>-         <![endif]>Visible shelf wear noted on the top and bottom seams

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>-         <![endif]>Cover has some fraying/wear along the spine

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportLists]>-         <![endif]>Cover has two corners slightly worn / dinged  (nothing significant)

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>

NO OTHER VISIBLE FLAWS OR IMPERFECTIONS ON THE  COVER
