John Hooker Lee / T-Bone Walker / Sonny Terry & Brownie Mcghee - American Folk Blues Festival Live In Paris 20 Octobre 1

For twenty years The American Folk Blues Festival was a legendary tour that undertook to spread authentic blues throughout Europe. In October 1962 the tour reached the Olympia in Paris, where the audience could hear the first French concerts by John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, T-Bone Walker, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. The concert sold out. It announced the Folk & Blues Revival wave that went on to sweep Europe & especially Britain in the mid-Sixties. FrEmeaux & AssociEs, together with Body & Soul, are proud to make available to the public this never-released, complete 3CD set that also contains introductions, comments and the enthusiastic reactions of the audience. Patrick FREMEAUX The Live in Paris collection by Michel BrilliE allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period. Patrick FREMEAUX & Gilles PETARD
