Fronted by the outstanding vocals of Lydia Pense, Cold Blood played their own hybrid of funk, soul, R&B and underground rock. They came to prominence in 1970, when Janis Joplin recommended them to Bill Graham, who ran the legendary Fillmore West. Graham not only signed them to his own label, but enthusiastically promoted them at the Fillmore. This remarkable set was recorded on the venue's emotional final night, and finds the band at the peak of their powers. Taped on the last night of the Fillmore, June 30th, 1971. Background notes and photos included.
