"Dollar for dollar, the Millennium Collection CDs are disappointing, and that is putting it nicely.
You can get many more songs for not much more money by looking at other collections, or "Best of" CDs. I see these in the store and am always amazed that people buy them. Not just for BB King, but for numerous artists.
Dollar for dollar, this is simply the worst way to sample the King."
Truly the King of the Blues

"If you've ever enjoyed any of BB King's music you will thoroughly enjoy this compilation. It spans his carreer and his different types of music. Some of the songs make you want to crawl into the corner seat at your local bar with a bottle all to yourself while others make you want to get up & dance. It is one of the better blues albums I've heard. Going to buy one for my Mom right now, that's how good it is."

"This is the best B.B. King CD value for the money. It's a little shallow song-wise and leaves out so many gems form his long, fruitful career, but it's some of his most accessable music. Traces of soul, rock, and '80s pop fall in with the blues on the album's ten tracks, making a good choice for the pop muisc collector or casual fan. More ardent fans will, and should, want more, but it's worth the price for what you get."
Got the blues and I feel soooo good

"If you just want a taste of BBK than this is an excellent place to start for a small amount of bucks, money well spent. Remastering is very good. Jump and shout and get your mojo goin'."
Poor sound quality

"A lot of songs for little money, however, there are no liner notes and the sound quality is very poor. To some it may sound "authentic," but there are many other compilations that are a much better introduction to B.B. King."
