CD Reviews

A bit dishonest
B | Pa | 02/24/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Each of the selections are ok - but they're all replays of previous recordings. But mainly, titling it `BB King & Friends' mischievously leads one to assume, as I did, that BB, Brubeck, & Heath Bros. at different times performed TOGETHER (which they do not!). I mean, that's how it usually is on albums titled like this. I feel robbed."
B.B. King portion of this CD
Lawrence A Team | Tucson, AZ | 12/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is a composite of three talents. I am only addressing the BB King selections.
His portion is what I always was looking for. Essentially a recording of a live performance. Not a polished dressed up studio job but a gritty, soulful real stage performance where BB earns his living and forged his unique style. I see BB every time he comes by. His live performances with his high mileage tried and true entourage of accompanying musicians outshine his recordings. This album has full length versions "The Thrill is Gone" and the best version of "Guess Who" you will ever hear in your entire life. His voice and health was at its peak and this CD has captured his essence. It's that good."
