Though it was advertised as a live recording, the original LP release of the recital included a number of unacknowledged edits to correct errors and imperfections in Horowitz's playing. While Horowitz, himself, said in later years that his greatest performances were never note perfect, he apparently couldn't resist having the recording doctored. Those edits have always been the subject of controversy, especially since every aspect of the performance seemed engraved on the memories of those present at the historical concert. Sony Classical's new edition of the live recording returrns for the first time to the original, unexpurgated source to restore the pure spontaneity and brillance of Horowitz's playing - mistake and all - on that memorable afternoon.

Bluesman Willie King's mentor, Mississippi musician Albert "Brook" Duck, once explained to Willie that most blues lyrics which have man/woman relationships as their subject actually reflect misguided, pent-up hostility resulting from not having an outlet to express frustration at the real oppressor: "the people with the money." Willie King took that revelatory message to heart, going after the root of the problem in his gutsy music and lyrics. In the liner notes to Freedom Creek, Liberators' guitarist Aaron Hodge is quoted as saying, "I think Willie King is more of a Bob Marley kind of guy, grassroots, and really striving." Willie King & the Liberators' music is gritty enough to please fans of R.L. Burnside or Junior Kimbrough, while King brings another dimension to blues poetry by focusing on national unity, change, and especially fighting corruption.
