Koko Taylor live from the 11th Annual Chicago Blues Festival, on 5th June 1994

Before her roar was silenced in 2009, the Queen of the Blues reigned over the annual Chicago Blues Festival weekend. In 1994, she had arrived with a new album Force of Nature and been honoured by the Chicago City mayor as well as being awarded with the W.C. Handy Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year. Koko Taylor was also about to open her own club in Chicago, but she put time aside to headline the last night.

As with all of her performances, it's a jubilant and powerful Taylor that stands at the mic spreading an education and joy to others. God save the Queen of the Blues!

Echoes very proudly presents the entire WBEZ-FM broadcast of Koko Taylor, Queen of the Blues live from the 11th annual Chicago Blues Festival on Sunday 5th June 1994.
