With the recent Jazz thread suggesting albums from the 60s & 70s....this is another that stands out. I don't know how many of you have this CD, so I thought all might want to read the liner notes. Some very cool remembrances here.

Enjoy!

This got raves at my NyE party when it came on. I had a bunch of CD's on Shuffle a lot of people were asking about this when it was coming up.
Of course i had to pull out the AR Studio version of the Brothers doing Soul Serenade to top it all off.
Duane is through the roof with emotion while playing that.

That's what I was thinking too.

ďAbout King Curtis - that was one of the finest cats there ever was. He was just right on top of getting next to young people, you know? Itís a shame. If yíall get the chance, listen to that album he made out at Fillmore WestÖ Boy, itís incredible, itís unbelievable, the power and the emotional stature the man had. Heís an incredible human being."

Thanks for posting this. I don't own this album, it will move to the top part of my "To get" list. It sounds wonderful! It caught my eye as someone put it on the Live albums thread a couple of weeks ago. This makes it official for me

Yeah, LOVE this album. I am sure I'm right in suggesting the Jerry Jemmont on bass is the same dude currently playing along side Gregg.

Also this live album was the fist half of a mega evening with Aretha playing out the second half. King Curtis was her musical director. An awesome dude.

And don't forget Cornell Dupree on guitar, Billy Preston on organ, and Bernard Purdie on drums. Great, great album.
There is a little dive-ish boxing themed bar right off of Times Square in NYC, I think e.44th st., called Jimmy's Corner. I stumbled into, and out of, this little joint for the first time a couple of years ago. Its got a limited, but great, jukebox. Among the selections is King Curtis Fillmore West. I usually play the whole album when I go there.

Truly a classic recording. A must have!
I love the recordings with Duane and Curtis...with Delaney and Bonnie.

The night the Kingpins were guests last year at the Beacon was one of the absolute highlights of the entire run.

Agree. That organ player was pretty damn good for only having 3 fingers on one hand

i've not heard this album yet, but when looking to pick it up, discovered that there is a release from 2000/2001 and a remaster from 2005/6. someone on amazon commented about the remaster that they mixed in a second guitar, that makes it sound odd, sometimes over KC's solos?? any truth to this? what version do you have, and is one preferable to the other? the remaster has 5-6 extra songs on it.

sounds like this would really be great on wax.

thanks, y'all a great bunch.
