Release Date:08/05/2014;Notes:Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. LIVE AT THE FILLMORE WEST was the ultimate King Curtis live album, a brilliant confirmation of the saxophonist's place in popular music. This is the stuff of Soul legends that belongs in any record collection. The album showcases three concerts he played with his band the Kingpins at the Fillmore West venue in San Francisco in March 1971. Famed for their outstanding rhythmic interplay, the group of seasoned session men featured Cornell Dupree on guitar, Billy Preston on electric organ and Bernard 'Pretty' Purdie on drums, supported by the inimitable Memphis Horns. Curtis rips through some of the biggest hits of the day including Stevie Wonder's 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)' and Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love', transforming them into showcases for the group's soulful playing. Beautiful renditions of 'A Whiter Shade of Pale' and 'I Stand Accused' are highlights, and full-throttle rockers like 'Changes' and 'Memphis Soul Stew' comprise the heart of the album. Tragically only a week after it's release, Curtis was stabbed to death outside his brownstone apartment in New York following an argument with two junkies.;Track List:1. Memphis Soul Stew;2. A Whiter Shade of Pale;3. Whole Lotta Love;4. I Stand Accused;5. Changes;6. Ode to Billie Joe;7. Mr. Bojangles;8. Signed Sealed Delivered I'm Yours;9. Soul Serenade
