In conjunction with the famous heavyweight title fight between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, a three day concert was held before an adoring crowd of 80,000. This film documents B.B. King's performance during the concert. The master plays over a half-dozen songs including "Sweet Sixteen", "I Believe In My Soul", "The Thrill Is Gone", and "Why I Sing the Blues". This concert film was directed by Leon Gast, who won an Oscar for his documentary about the Ali/Foreman fight, When We Were Kings.
