Live At The Chicago Blues Festival 94
Echoes very proudly presents the entire WBEZ-FM broadcast of Koko Taylor, "Queen of the Blues", live from the 11th annual Chicago Blues Festival on Sunday June 5th, 1994. Before her roar was silenced in 2009, the "Queen of the Blues" reigned over the annual Chicago Blues Festival weekend. In 1994, she had just released a new album Force of Nature (1993) and was honored by the mayor of Chicago as well as being awarded with the W.C. Handy Contemporary Blues "Female Artist of the Year". Koko Taylor was also about to open her own club in Chicago but she put time aside to headline the last night of this Blues Festival. As with all of her performances, it's a jubilant and powerful Taylor that stands at the mic spreading an education and joy to others. Professionally re-mastered original FM broadcast. Includes background liners with interviews and rare archival photos.
