Editorial Reviews

Cray had just vaulted from the blues scene to the national spotlight when this 1987 Austin set aired on the King Biscuit Flower Hour. He's in total command as he does his then-new hits Smoking Gun and Right Next Door (Because of Me) plus Foul Play; Bad Influence; Still Around; Phone Booth , and more!

Format: Audio CD
This show was recorded at an outdoor music festival in Austin, Texas that featured The Fabulous Thunderbirds as headliners, and first broadcast on King Biscuit Flower Hour where Cray was riding high off the success of his previous year's Strong Persuader breakthrough album. That album - and its FM radio hit "Smoking Gun" - earned Cray a Grammy Award and made him one of the most highly demanded contemporary blues acts on the scene.

The CD features Cray and the band, playing Cray's hits, and a very rare instrumental 'Back At The Chicken Shack', this track alone is worth the cost of the CD,

finally broke down and bought this live cd ( what else is 10 bucks gonna get you? ), and am so happy that I did! Sound quality is excellent and Cray is in great voice throughout ( and also in-between ) all these tracks.Sounds like it was recorded yesterday , not 23 years ago. Great cd for all his fans while we await his next album ( also a live set)

this is a great live album not the best live blues album I have ever heard, that would be Freddie King Live at the Electric Ballroom, but that being said this is a solid live blues album from a living legend you cannot go wrong by getting this album and if you love Robert Cray you should have this in your collection

I thought Live at the BBC was great, but this CD is even better. Captures Robert Cray in his absolute prime.

Needed to ad this to my collection of his works but recording could've been better. Like others said already 2-3 rare songs covered by Cray were on this album.
