BB KING and JOHNNY WINTER
Newport Jazz Festival 1969 [A DoinkerTape, 2CD]
Live At The Newport Jazz Festival; July 6, 1969. Good to very good audience recording.
Thanks to Doinker who originally shared the show at Dime; and to jbarrowsrn for keeping the show alive at planetrocklosslessbootlegs.com.
The performances of the two artists of this show really could not be separated. The announcements during and between sets connect them as one event, so they are presented together. BB King performs first, then Johnny Winter, and then BB King JOINS Johnny Winter for a jam session that has to be heard to be believed. To say they go a little crazy together is an understatement.
These over-the-top performances, that you can listen to over and over again!
Even though part of this recording needed speed correction, that’s not a pitch problem you hear. BB’s guitar is “funky-style” out of tune. Not out of tune to itself, but pitched slightly out-of-key. It certainly adds another dimension to the sound of his band. You’ll notice it more on the jam with Johnny Winter.

Several glitches in the original tape were smoothed out. Pitch was matched and maintained throughout with “Virtual Keyboard”.
Thanks also to texashash for the corrected tracklist; and thanks to mroscoe for the artwork (modified here).
