Workhorse Records is excited to present Becky Barksdale's REAL LIVE! A rare performer in any day or age, Becky Barksdale embodies in one individual the vast Texas blues guitar tradition of Freddie King, the flirtatious sensuality and assertive independence of Bessie Smith and the raw passionate vocals of her hometown legend, Janis Joplin. This long awaited release captures the heart and soul of Becky's amazing live performances. It's no mistake that Becky was prominently featured on The House Of Blues album, ESSENTIAL WOMEN IN BLUES. If you like your blues served up with power, passion and deep roots, this album is a must for your collection.
