A blues-enjoying FBvian takes me to task for yesterday’s post, wherein I claimed there hasn’t been a notable live album recorded in Dallas since the late ’60s:
No disrespect intended, but if D Magazine is even going to pretend to be some sort of local arbiter or cultural record keeper, you’re going to have to do better than that!
I saw B.B. King record and film a kick-[ace] show a block away from the Granada, “Live at Nick’s,” in the early 80’s. He and the band smoked. Released on Sony months later, in ’83 officially says the internet. The DVD followed many years later.
I’m assuming your James Brown reference is the ’68 Memorial Auditorium show.
I think there might have been some disrespect intended.
