Crusaders With B.B. King

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Crusaders With B.B. King - Royal Jam Royal Jam
Jazz Used - LP VIM-9527~8 MCA
1982 Japanese 2LP Gatefold With Obi. Both LPs Appear Glossy, Unplayed. The Sound Quality Of This Great Concert, Recorded At The Royal Festival Hall Is Akin To The Eagles' "Hell Freezes Over." With Their Rhythm Section Pumping Away And Drummer Stix Hooper In A Particularly Propulsive Mood All Night, The Crusaders Special Guest B.B. King Slips On To The Stage, First In A Stomping "The Thrill Is Gone" And Then In One Of The Most Infectious Tracks He Or The Crusaders Ever Cut, "Better Not Look Down." It's A Master Class In Economy, Every Guitar Note Landing Squarely In Stix's Pocket, Sample Matching Every Brief Lick With A Funky Comment On The Electric Piano, The King's Command Over The British Audience Complete. King Also Tries Out The Big Crusaders Vocal Hit "Street Life," But This Time, Guest Singer Josie James Has Him Beat -- And There Are Some Evidently Unplanned Numbers For King And The Crusaders As Encores. Elsewhere, Guitarist David T. Walker Is On-Hand To Provide Economic, To-The-Point Commentary In His Own Style; James Is Also Featured In An Exuberant "Burnin' Up The Carnival." Apart From His Reliable Comping On Electric Piano. Sample Also Provides Some Elaborate Elegance On Solo Acoustic Piano On "Fly With Wings Of Love," While Tenor Player Wilton Felder Acts As The Genial Emcee. It's One Of The Band's Most Enjoyable Albums Of That Period.... more details
