"B.B. King keeps on amazing me with every album. I found this one at a used record store and I still can't believe somebody would get rid of it. "Breaking Up Somebody's Home" is a fantastic cut. B.B. let's his guitar do alot of the talking and Lucille speaks loud and clear. Not everything B.B. has put out has been great, but this one should be in the collection of every blues fan. It is that good."

"LUCILLE TALKS BACK contains what I now come to expect from B. B. King: a superb collection of backing musicians playing at the height of their powers, with the King of the Blues himself front and center, pinging out blue notes from Lucille and singing his heart out. There's no standout song on here, all of the tracks are great, solid blues numbersI'm always impressed by how crafted the music sounds on this album while still managing to feel spontaneous and natural. This is exactly what this sort of jazz/blues music should sound like. The percussion, the horns, the guitar solos, the vocals. Everything just sounds so right in a low-key but effective way. Nobody steps on anyone else's toes. All the parts fit together perfectly. This may not sound like much of a compliment, but it's only when you hear talent and skill such as is on display here that you realize how rare it is.A number of the tracks are live selections, giving the album a good jolt of energy. Don't get me wrong; the studio recordings here are tight. But there's just something appealing about hearing a great bunch of musicians performing in front of an appreciative audience. There's a lot of cheering, hooting, hollering and all kinds of audience participation. Great fun.This is an understated and underrated little album. None of the songs on here are instantly thought of when someone mentions B. B. King's name, but they're immediately identifiable as his. Energy, passion and emotion flow through this album; B. B. King and company make it all sound effortless. If you like good strong blues playing, then this CD should already be a part of your collection. It's not revolutionary or completely mind-blowing, but this is a fantastic piece for both beginners and longtime fans of the blues."

"I loved the LP title Lucille Talks Back in 1975? but I no longer have it ....so I will buy this CD although it is missing 4 songs from the LP and has 6 songs that were not on the LP and yet it says "original release". The 2 wah wah songs are on here -thankfully- and they get 5 stars"
