Lost BB King tapes discovered from 1979

The audio recordings of a 1979 BB King concert in Russia from behind the Iron Curtain have never been heard until now.

The cassettes of this concert were lost for nearly 36 years and Chasing News got a chance to hear the audio being rendered for the first time.

The legendary Eastside Sound recording studio on the Lower East Side, is where music icons like Beyoncé, Santana, and Sting have played.

Howard Leder, a New York-based music producer and arranger, had a long career, but one of the highlights was when King hired him to work on a live concert album.

Leder mentioned that BB King hired him, right after the Russian tour, to work on producing a live album.
