One of BB's best. Big, brassy, full of verve. His stardom shines through on this infectious ride through one of the best live blues perfomances of all times. Don't intellectualise over it, just listen. The, what would be a mainly black, audience are rapturous. BB showed the way and black consciousness learned. But let's share it. Blues belongs to everyone. Albums like this broke barriers. You just can't help but get on it when listening. A goodtime bounce through BB's favourites helped in no small portion by a rythm section as tight as Getty's wallet. This band honed to mutual perfection were as close to BB as you could get. Playing their home town Chicago obviously inspired them to greatness. They lived up to that inspiration and didn't let the home of the blues down.
A must.

I hadn't bought a BB King album before, and bought this on the strength of the reviews on this page. I am absolutely blown away by the musicianship on show here. BB King's voice is fantastic, and Lucille is really on top form too !
I'd definately recommend it. Buy it for rough and ready blues, delivered by one of the most evocative voices you're ever likely to hear.

This cd is an (unusual) live recording where it feels as if you are really seeing BB King playing his best in 1964. The songs are an impressive fusion of the well known voice and guitar with an energetic, funky band and the all-important interaction of the audience just adds so much feeling. Play it loud in your car and you could be there......

This was a Christmas present - yes, bought from Amazon - to replace a copy I loaned to a friend who promptly mislaid it. It appears to have gone for good, into that place where odd socks and keys go...

I chose this particular issue - the MCA 1997 one, at random. I chose very well. The sound is fine, more like my treasured mono vinyl copy than any CD I've heard.

B.B.King is THE blues singer and THE Blues guitarist of the last century, what Neil Slaven would call 'doubly-blessed' (he was referring to Otis Rush) for his astounding abilty to deliver a seemingly effortless and perfect vocal like the incredible 'Worry, Worry' herewith and at other times produce an immaculate guitar solo. It must have been GOOD to have been B.B.King in the 1950s and 1960s!

Note that I refer to him as a singer first and foremost. That's because that's how it is, which is not to decry his wonderful guitar playing but to stress how King himself saw it and his original audience saw it. His eventual audience - mostly white - stressed the guitar playing, which really isn't it...Blues is a vocal art, first and foremost.

But this album...it's just so great. Yes, the follow-up 'live' album 'Blues Is King' has many fine moments (not all of them 'live' by any means) but this album is the one. Here it is, well-mastered, very well-presented, with - unlike other issues - the two spoken introductions intact - and no bonus tracks. They wouldn't work here.

Well it might have been for Frank Zappa, much as I loved the guy, but BB King didn't need a whammy bar, he did it with his fingers! Man, he must have fingers as hard as a 10th dan karate expert! I had seen Eric Clapton going on about this album on the BBC 4 program "Can Blue Men Sing the Whites" and then I saw Peter Green going on about it on BBC 4's "Blues America". BB King was on the same program saying he had "big, stupid fingers", and I mean, he has a hand like a bunch of bananas (you don't need to work out when you're playing blues!) then they showed him playing and illustrating his vibrato and the amount of power was just awesome, I mean I have never seen anybody else do that. I already had a couple of albums from later on, (because he's still playing), but if you buy this one, you will hear the fire in his belly, you will hear where the two English dudes got a lot of their ideas and technique and the playing is so good you will forget you are listening to a gig, until the audience holler and hoot and make their own contribution and show their appreciation, hell I was doing it in my living room. This is probably THE BB King album to own, unless a smarter, more knowledgeable contributer out there wants to put me straight, in fact it's probably THE blues album to own, I mean, wow!

These 10 tracks recorded in 1964 have the reputation of being one of the greatest live blues concerts ever put on disc.They do not disappoint save from the shortness of the concert. Are there more tracks in the vaults ? or was the intensity of the 35 minutes enough for performer and audience?The guitar playing is searing and superb .The singing almost frightening in its intensity and emotion.Of course it has some of the noise from the audience which some may find distracting If so you really should not be listening to live recordings ,especially ones which have not been cleaned up ,toned down and killed with kindness. Here you hear it as it was much as on that great Rock and Roll Concert by Jerry Lee Lewis :Live at the Star Club, Hamburg .This is one of the few discs that really lives up to its reputation I can only express embarrassment that it has taken so long to be added to mine.Absolutely essential for lovers of blues in general and BB in particular
