Blues legend B.B. King has been spending time this year thinking about "The B.B. King That Was." There is his bricks, mortar and memory project down in a Mississippi blues crossroads, his very own B.B. King Museum, which acknowledges his past. And then, his new Geffen Records CD One Kind Favor which puts the blues maestro in competition, not with other players, but. himself. ... Read more in Amazon's B.B. King Store

5.0 out of 5 stars BB is the Man 14 July 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I listened to this on the way to see BB King, and a smile didn't leave my face once on the way up or on the way back home.
The man's voice is absolutely magical - emotion, talent, and experience all combined in spades. The first track sets the scene, and from then on it just continues; the style and sophistication of 'We're gonna make it' is just one example of what a great musician this man is. And that's even before you consider the strength and depth of his band, and the awesome material that they play - music combined with the traditional live humour of a BB King concert.
Robert Cray's appearance is excellent, and some of the female singers just blow me away. There's only one bad song (sadly featuring the late great John Lee Hooker), and even that fails to detract from the sheer class act that is BB King and his band. The rest of the album is exemplary...

3.0 out of 5 stars going through the motions with friends 23 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
This is from 1993 . By then , BB had his bus pass but , with two football teams worth of children and a gambling habit to support , he had to keep working . Apart from one track , the album consists of duets with the creme de la creme of the blues world - Robert Cray , Katie Webster , Buddy Guy , John Lee Hooker , Koko Taylor , Etta James , Lowell Fulson , Albert Collins , Ruth Brown , Irma Thomas and Joe Louis Walker . I would dry those lips you were wetting because it all falls a little bit flat . Like many a celebrity project , it never really gets off the ground . Definitely considerably less than the sum of it's parts .

5.0 out of 5 stars BB is always at his Best with his friends 4 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
B.B. King gets no better than when he performs with the people he genuinely loves. This CD was my adult re-education in the Blues and I could not have done better. Whether it's Saturday morning baking or Sunday morning watering of the plants, I can't get it done without being on the Summit with B. B. and his great friends, Koko Taylor, Etta James and John Lee Hooker. This is the music that you makes you so deeply happy that you love music. It makes me love my friends as well. At the age of 4, my Granddaughter has made B. B. one of her friends and I will never worry that along with all the other genres she will always include Blues having fallen in love with B. B. and his Friends. This CD provides the juice for my personal cabaret.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best blues album of the 90's 21 Dec 2000
By Blues Bro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Its hard to find an album in these days that you could put in the same shelf as your classic Muddy, Wolf, Johnson, Sonny Boy albums. But this surely can. The album has a quelity rarely displayed on blues album today, its fresh, and a lot of these tracks are first or second takes, no shameful overdubs. Every tracks is a first class performance, something magic definitely happended in these sessions. Albert Collins just plays one of his bests recorded solos of his life. Buddy Guy sings with that passionate almost out of control energy that he displays at his best. Duets albums have become a common thing in blues today, this is the best. All of these guys are BLUES artists, no rocknrollers, pops, countrys or crooners to cash on a certain market.Great for an introduction to the blues as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Call It Stormy Monday alone is worth the price 28 July 2000
By FairiesWearBoots8272 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
B.B. King is the greatest living bluesman and Albert Collins was one of the best blues guitarists in the world. Put the two together and you have pure magic. Blues Summit is a great album, but the absolute highlight is Stormy Monday with B.B. and Albert Collins. These two blues masters engage in an awesome 9-minute guitar shootout, which nothing else on the album manages to live up to. Still there's some great duets with John Lee Hooker, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy and Lowell Fulson. Great album, blues lovers will really love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Summit 28 Jan 2001
By booknblueslady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of life's greatest pleasures is listening to (and watching) a performer who truly enjoys his work. B.B. King is one of those performers. He loves the music and he loves performing and if by chance he can have a little help from his friends - why that makes everything just a little bit better.
The Blues Summit is truly a remarkable cd, with BB performer duets with some of the elite of the blues performers. Every song is a pleasure. There is not a throwaway on this cd. BB does great work with the divas - Koko Taylor, Etta James, Katie Webster, Ruth Brown and Irma Thomas. Listening to Ruth Brown and BB do You're the Boss, you just know they are having a great time performing together. Call it Stormy Monday with Albert Collins is a great version of this classic song.
This is a good cd for purists, those who like their blues with a little rock and someone wanting an introduction to the blues. It will put a smile on your face.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, nearly flawless 12 July 2001
By Jeremy Short - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album 4 years after it's release (I was 10 years old), and listened the hell out of the first song, then put it down and didn't touch it until a few months ago. Now, a full-fledged Blues fan who can finally relate to what the Blues is and respect the guitar playing, I listened to this album and was blown away.
Some of the songs still aren't all that good to me today (Since I Met You Baby, Somehting You Got, You're The Boss) and the rest are utterly awesome, the best track being I Gotta Move Outta This Neighborhood/Nobody Loves Me But My Mother. The solos on the song are ... great, and it's got some classic B.B. humor as well. A close second is Stormy Monday, with the trademark great solo (can he write a bad one?) and Blues lyrics. The rest of the album plays great with any Blues surroundings (Playin' With My Friends-backyard BBQ, and any other song-highway, jailhouse, empty bed, bottom of whiskey glass...).
B.B. King will always be remembered for the Blues. This album only furthers his status as the king of the Blues...
