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 .
