Albert King "Blues Power" live
King's favored guitars were modeled on the Gibson Flying V. Luthier Dan Erlewine said King tuned to C-F-C-F-A-D with light-gauge strings (0.009", 0.012", 0.024" wound, 0.028", 0.038", 0.050"). The lighter-gauge strings were a factor in King's string-bending technique.
Recorded Live on September 23rd, 1970 at the Fillmore East, 105 Second Avenue at East 6th Street Manhattan, New York City. Among the notable acts to play the Fillmore East was Jimi Hendrix. His album Band of Gypsys was recorded live on New Year's Day 1970, and before Hendrix, British blues-rock trio Cream played the Fillmore East when it was called the "Village Theater" on September 20 & 23 1967.

The one thing the blues don't get is the backing and pushing of TV and radio like a lot of this garbage you hears. They choke stuff down people's throat so they got no choice but to listen to it.
    — John Lee Hooker
It's very easy to learn. And very difficult to master.
    — Sonny Terry
If T-Bone Walker had been a woman, I would have asked him to marry me. I'd never heard anything like that before: single-string blues played on an electric guitar.
