Classic Fillmore Live CD Reissues

(PR) Rhino Records will be releasing two legendary live at Fillmore West albums recorded in 1971 by Aretha Franklin and King Curtis as remastered and expanded deluxe reissues on July 11th.

On March 5-7, 1971, the Queen of Soul headlined Bill Graham's world-famous venue. Backed by the supercharged rhythm section of King Curtis And The Kingpins, Aretha is in peak form on a diverse set of classic songs, including "Respect," "Dr. Feelgood," "Bridge Over Troubled Water," and more. The second disc of this two-CD set features rare alternate versions previously available only on the limited-edition Rhino Handmade title Don't Fight The Feeling: The Complete Aretha Franklin & King Curtis Live At Fillmore West.

R&B saxophone giant King Curtis was at the top of his game on three consecutive nights in March 1971, when he opened for Aretha Franklin at a trio of historic concerts at Bill Graham's storied venue. Backed by his ace rhythm section, the Kingpins, plus organist Billy Preston, and the Memphis Horns, Curtis rips through a soulful tour de force of top R&B, rock, and pop hits of the day. This deluxe edition includes five rare bonus tracks, including a version of George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord."
