George Duke at Wolfgang’s Vault

Recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour, Live at the Bottom Line (New York, NY) April 21, 1977, when George Duke was promoting his first Epic solo album, Reach For It, this show incorporated female vocalists, and had a decidedly high energy, Latin-funk groove. Unfortunately, most of the songs are incomplete as they were pulled from a series of outtake reels for the radio show; still the concert is well worth the listen.
