Heading into seldom heard territory this weekend with a 1971 concert by Booker T & Priscilla, recorded at The Matrix in San Francisco on April 15, 1971.

Having gotten married to the Priscilla Coolidge, sister of singer Rita Coolidge, Booker T. Jones had also left his former record label home, Stax and ventured on to new ground and a new label (A&M). The result was a mixed-review collaboration simply known as Booker T & Priscilla, one of three albums the couple would do before calling it quits.

This 1971 concert, features Jones (and Priscilla) along with Doug Gilmer on bass, Peter Miliou on drums and Fred Burton on guitar.

A historic and interesting concert that sounds quite good for its age.

    This is the wrong link. It’s not Booker T and Priscilla 1971, it’s Booker T & The MG’s 1968

      That’s what I thought too. And then I researched it. It’s not the classic MG’s lineup, but rather it’s Doug Gilmer on bass, Peter Miliou on Drums, Fred Burton on guitar and Priscilla Coolidge on vocals. That lineup was together in 1971 and not 1968. By 1971 Booker T had already left Memphis and settled on the West Coast. So the 1968 date wouldn’t be possible with that lineup, but it would in 1971. So that’s what I arrived at, based on researching his site and two other people who have the same concert.
