I am a hardcore BB fan; therefore, he has not made a bad album, in my opinion. If there is one track on the CD that was bad, I could not find it. I enjoyed the total CD!! Go BB!!

Excellent Sampler

"This is an extremely brief single-disc summary of B.B. King's MCA output beginning with his first single for the label, 1963's "How Blue Can You Get?" through his pairing with Robert Cray on "Playin' with My Friends" from 1993's Blues Summit all-star recording. Among the many highlights are two tracks ("Every Day I Have the Blues" and "Sweet Little Angel") from the essential Live at the Regal, "The Thrill Is Gone" (which went to No. 15 in 1970, making it the highest charting blues song ever on the U.S. pop charts!) and the chilling "When Love Comes to Town" with U2. While condensing 30 years of music onto a single disc is an impossible task, this makes an excellent primer for novice fans on a budget. RECOMMENDED [Note: Last November MCA released the 2-disc B.B. King Anthology. It includes EVERY song on Greatest Hits, plus an additional 18 songs. For a few extra bucks, this would be the album to get instead.]"
If you have never heard BB, this is a great place to start.

"The only reason that I can think of as to why no one has bothered to review this cd is because those of us who are fans already have most of the tracks on here. But for those of you who have only recently seen the light and have become BB fans and don't know where to start, this is the perfect cd for you. This cd was put out only recently, and it does a great job of covering BB's older songs as well as some from the more recent "Blues Summit". This is far superior to the way-too-short "Best of BB King" LP that we were stuck buying until this one came out. All but three or four of the songs on "Best of.." are covered here also. The point is, if you are only going to buy one BB King album (and may I ask WHY???). this should be it. In my opinion, every one of these songs, especially the incredibly durable blues classic "The Thrill is Gone", belong in everyone's music collection. Once you check this one out, you will immediately want to get into some of his other albums, of which I would recommend "Completely Well", "Back In The Alley", and of course the new one, "Blues On The Bayou". Do yourself a big favor and buy the cd, you're gonna love it."
