Synopsis by Mark Deming
When Muhammad Ali and George Foreman staged their heavyweight title fight in Zaire in 1974, a three-day music festival was held in tandem with the bout, and headliner B.B. King proved why he's regarded as the world's premier blues guitarist with this dynamic concert performed for an audience of 80,000 African fans (look carefully to spot Ali enjoying the show). Songs include "The Thrill Is Gone," "I Like to Live the Love I Sing About," "Why I Sing the Blues," and "Sweet Sixteen."
