Live in Cook County Jail is a 1971 live album by American blues musician . King, recorded on September 10, 1970, in Cook County Jail. King and his backing band performed slow blues tracks for a audience of 2,117 prisoners, most of whom were young black men. Cook County Jail warden Winston Moore asked King to perform for the prisoners. King agreed, and after he told ABC Records about the performance, he was advised to bring along press and recording equipment.

King - Live In Cook County Jail (1970).

Ironically, at the same time King says this he has just released Live In Cook County Jail as if to protect himself from exactly this type of thinking. You can’t get much more down than the Cook County jail. Still, no King album is ever really bad. The one weakness of the three recent studio albums has been an occasional stiffness in the guitar playing. The guitar playing on Cook County is as good as the man ever plays: he is in top form from beginning to end. Another treat is the drumming by King’s bandleader of 12 years, Sonny Freeman. When it comes to standard King fare, Freeman has no equal and its good to hear him on record again.

Live In Cook County Jail. One of the greatest concert recordings of all time. How could it be less, with . King performing some of his best material before a literally captive audience in an Illinois prison? "Worry, Worry" and "How Blue Can You Get" take on deeper meanings here, although King works the latter's camp lyrics as if he were in a juke joint. His mix of down-home humility and commanding stagecraft is instantly appealing. And his guitar barks, sings, and squeals with such authority that this is a bravura performance from the first bent, soul-searing note.
