Summary

Summary

Much gutsier than the REGAL album, this is in harmony with the patrons as King plays to a different audience; the inmates of one of America's toughest prisons. King devotes a lot of his time every year performing to prisoners, and he coummunicates on this album without patronizing them. This is a fairly predictable set but the high level recording (presumably to block out any obscenities) makes it one of his most exciting live albums. Songs he has played a thousand times sound fresh and energetic, notably "Everyday I Have The Blues" and "Let The Good Times Roll."
