Good quality, LIVE recordings – no lip sinc here!! A real feast of 1960s Blues from some of the best. This is worth having in your music libreary for sure.


A rare collection of performances by America's premiere bluesmen at the peak of their artistry.

The AFBF was an annual event that featured the cream of American blues musicians barnstorming their way across western Europe every autumn from 1962 through 1966. Recorded live in a small TV studio in Germany, these historic and unseen performances have been lost for nearly 40 years.

The American Folk Blues Festivals featured a dazzling array of talent that included such greats as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker and Sonny Boy Williamson playing alongside other legends such as T-Bone Walker, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Memphis Slim and Big Mama Thornton to create the most significant group of blues artists ever assembled!
