Of all his live projects, this remains my personal favorite. There is a special electricity in his guitar-playing and his voice is in great form. He is certainly the KING, and this recording shows B.B. at his very best. If you're seeking a powerful live album by the blues legend, this is the one to own and enjoy.
A must have
What a set! A classic album that will complement and compliment any music collection. Songs played with heart that ooze through the speakers and brings the listener into the world of the blues. I love it.
Classic BB King at his best!!!
He's not king of the blues by accident

Spectacular live album. BB King is an absolute legend and it shines through on this gritty and simultaneously beautiful concert at a maximum security prison.
I heard almost this same set (mercifully not at San Quentin but another venue) a few months after this recording. It is hard to appreciate just how good his band is. They play a few incredible instrumentals before BB comes out. Once he comes out and plays the BB King intro it is one of the more "religious" experiences a devout blues fan can experience. You have to buy it.
