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 at his best 18 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome live performance. 10 Sep 2000
Format:Audio CD
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......

5.0 out of 5 stars It is that good 5 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
I think this is one of the best live albums of any type, in the sense that you get the real feeling of the audience hysteria. In a similar way to James Brown "Live At The Apollo" it's not note perfect and there's been no tarting up in the studio.

"Sweet Little Angel" is a fabulous version with a great vocal and good audience involvement, alongside "How Blue Can You Get".

It's a long way from the polished studio albums released recently but essential nontheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good - too short 1 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I know it was originally on vinyl but couldn't they have made it a double album. the music is pretty amazing but it only lasts about 40 minuites and I wish it was longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars King of the Blues 5 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This albums just shows how great BB is live. His singing is epic and his lead guitar perfect. As a guitarist myself i can say that this is nowhere near as natural and easy as BB makes it sound. His tone compares well with any of the more flash blues players. Fantastic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Blues With A Feeling! 14 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is the now legendary Live At The Regal album, at an incredible bargain price! Anything under 10 is a steal for an album of this quality.

This is BB as a relatively young man (around the age of 40)playing with plenty of fire and attitude, yet with that lightness of touch that is his trademark. I tend to think that the live atmosphere is slightly contrived (and possibly appears to be 2 from different sets, or maybe even 2 different nights). However, that should not detract from the music, which is still as relevant and vital today as it was nearly 50 years ago, when it was recorded.

If you like this album, check out Blues Is King. In my opinion it is the definitive BB King live album. Recorded in a sweaty Chicago night club on fireworks night in 1966, it just writes the book on how to play blues guitar! The old vinyl album is now available on cd, with a couple of extra live tracks. It should be the number 1 album purchase for all BB King fans, or anyone who just loves blues guitar playing at its pinnacle. Regal for me doesn't quite rate 5 stars, but Blues Is King gets top marks with ease!

5.0 out of 5 stars As it was 21 Jun 2007
By Mr. Stephen Edwards VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is the real thing. One of the great live recordings in any genre, it really is "live" with all the imperfections and crowd intrusions of the gig as it happened. BB King was always at the soul end of the blues styles, and this concert was recorded at the time that soul music was really taking off in BBs heartland. That fact is reflected in the performance - brash, noisy and above all entertaining.
