Classic Fillmore Live CD Reissues
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."
