5.0 out of 5 stars B.B.KING OF THE BLUES>>>WITHOUT DOUBT THE KING !
I've been waiting for this release and take it from me its been worth it.This is the greatest ambassador of the blues at his very best.Recorded in two of his clubs but sequenced to bring us one tremendous set.With his full band with horns,or a very personal and intimate section with just keyboard bass and drums,just as he did on his last UK tour.His stories,his sense of...

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing performance(s)
Very poor. Too much jazz, too much brass, too much talking, too much playing up to the audience & not enough "real" blues for me. This is going to my local charity shop after playing just once!

This review is from: B.B. King: Live [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I've been waiting for this release and take it from me its been worth it.This is the greatest ambassador of the blues at his very best.Recorded in two of his clubs but sequenced to bring us one tremendous set.With his full band with horns,or a very personal and intimate section with just keyboard bass and drums,just as he did on his last UK tour.His stories,his sense of humour,the way he reacts and relates with his audience make this a wonderful listening and viewing experience.Full of classic BB songs as well as some newer ones,but the real bonus is some of those songs he's not sung for many years being played again.'Key to the Highway'which he recorded on the Riding With The King album is an absolute standout performance.There are no guests here, its just the great man and his band giving their all on one of the best blues DVDs you'll ever see.He may be 81 but he's so full of life that whether your a blues fan or not you will just love this man,his music and one of the most tasteful and talented guitarists on the planet.This you can buy with absolute confidence,actually buy the CD as well then you can enjoy it in the car or in your Walkman as well.FABULOUS STUFF.
