About this album

Thursday Night In San Francisco is a Blues album by Albert King, recorded live in 1968 at the Fillmore Auditorium. This album, together with Wednesday Night In San Francisco, contains leftovers recorded live on the same dates as Live Wire/Blues Power. Thursday Night In San Francisco, released in 1990, contains material recorded on June 27, 1968.

“Recorded live in San Francisco in 1968, here’s Albert King pretty much at the top of his game, blasting out tons of great guitar and singing his heart to an appreciative crowd of young hippies. With a tight four-piece road band backing him, King fires up his Flying V and slams down hard on material like Freddie King’s “San-Ho-Zay,” “you Upset Me Baby,” “Call It Stormy Monday,” “Crosscut Saw,” and “Drifting Blues.” This is one of two volumes from the same Fillmore stand and both are absolutely essential to any Albert King collection; in many ways, they’re the perfect introduction to this blues giant.” — Review by Cub Koda
