1084. B.B. King - Live in Cook County Jail

There's something about taping a live gig in a jail that adds a certain craziness to the whole environment. Johnny Cash's Folsom LP is a bizarre document - when the crowd cheers to the 'killing a man just to watch him die' your hair stands up up. On County Cook B.B. sings and plays his heart out almost with sympathy for the inmates making several pleas for the men not to beat n their women... it's a short set but a classic.
