Talkin Blues contains a previously unreleased live date by Albert King recorded in Chicago on February 10, 1978. Released in cooperation with the Albert King Trust, this disc features seven live tracks, including King's signature tunes "I'll Play the Blues for You," "Born Under a Bad Sign," and "Blues at Sunrise." King's unique soulful guitar playing is in fine form here and the arrangements are punched up by the addition of a full horn section. Throughout the 50-minute disc, snippets of dialogue with King pop up, concluding with a full five-minute interview.
