Midnight Blue
Greekfreak | Pusan Korea (South) | 02/23/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unbelievably scorching 2CD set of the best live blues you're likely to hear in your entire life--as most of the other reviewers allude to, the first CD is the killer; ostensibly because it covers B.B.'s early years.It's especially useful for those of us who don't fancy the idea of buying every single one of his live albums due to limited budgets, and it's equally useful in a 'greatest hits-live' notion.The second disc suffers a bit by comparison--the duets come off as novelty status at best, but that doesn't mean B.B. isn't phenomenal for his part. Check out 'Sweet Little Angel', 'Don't Answer the Door', and 'Worry, Worry' for a classic blues primer."
Classic BB.. Superb collection of blues by the King !

"This 2-CD set is full of classic blues numbers performed exquisitely by BB. All performances are live and that adds to the excitement and sheer beauty of the music. Every number, on both CDs are worth listening to. Most of the music, specially on CD one, is superb. Stuff like, "Sweet Little Angel", "Buzz Me", and "Baby Get Lost" evoke sheer joy. The number two CD is not quite as good as the first simply because there are duets with other artists. However, if you want to listen to great blues music and sample the work of an American great don't hesitate to get this set."
B.B.'s best 'live' sets!

"Great performances of the bluesman,that won a Grammy this year! If you want to know something about the work of this eternal King,then buy this cd,and you'll not be disappointed! Really the first cd,is better than second.It's more bluesiest! But all the two are good and you get a view of B.B.'s peformances,on stages all over the world,and the guests performances,enriches the work.Perfectly,sensual,emotional....."
