BBC Live In Concert is a live recording of Jack Bruce performing live in concert. It was recorded by the BBC and broadcast on the Radio 1 In Concert programme.
The concert was at the Paris Theatre in London on 19 August 1971.
After the success of Cream, it would have been very easy for Jack Bruce to settle into playing Blues rock but in the late 1960s and early 1970s he was trying to be more progressive.
What we have is a jazz, blues, psychedelic fusion that I think is very interesting.
