The best-ever live music recordings?
The best-ever examples of live music recordings, according to tonight’s host Jennifer Lucy Allan. Featured artists include Elizabeth Cotten and Nina Simone.
To mark the first-ever Late Junction Festival, happening in east London later this week, presenter Jennifer Lucy Allan compiles her own personal compendium of the best-ever live albums and live sets committed to tape.
Expect to hear some stone-cold classic concert recordings, as well as some newer live releases that merit inclusion too. Featured performances include Nina Simone live in Liberia, a Grammy Award-winning concert recording from Elizabeth Cotten, and a superstar duet of Ravi Shankar and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan on stage.
