Editorial Reviews

The man needs no introduction. Truly the reigning king of blues, over the last 60 years B.B. King has developed one of the world's most identifiable guitar styles and has influenced thousands of musicians. Known for integrating precise and complex string bends with left hand vibrato, King has a uniquely regal and velvety tone making every note count. With trademark Gibson “Lucille” settled on his lap, B.B. King presents a concert filled with staggering guitar jams on hits like “The Thrill Is Gone” and “Downhearted.” In between songs, King’s characteristic affable persona shines through as he introduces the band he’s always toured with and shares stories from his life. Throughout the show special guests Terrence Howard, Solange, and guitarist Richie Sambora stop by to jam and pay tribute to this renowned blues master. Don’t miss legend B.B. King performing in his element in this amazing concert!

Song List: Everyday I Have the Blues, See That My Grave Is Kept Clean , How Many More Years, Downhearted, I Need You So, I Got Some Help I Don’t Need, Thrill is Gone, Nobody Loves Me But My Mother, Let the Good Times Roll, Thrill is Gone, When The Saints Go Marching In, Key to the Highway

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Buy February 1, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Great Video and great Audio.
Blu Ray is perfect.
BB King gets very personal on this DVD.
The special BB message to the fans is proof BB is getting old and he knows it.
This is a must buy for Blues fans or BB King fans.
Rated 10 plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic show in a great Blu-ray presentation form April 10, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Great show filmed in a small club, all songs you ever wished to hear at one event are there, B.B.King interaction with the audience is a one of the highlights of this concert. From technical point of view this blu-ray disc is brilliant: audio & video are really first rate ( you can't say that in a case of many other BR editions ) and deliver what BR was promissing. Simply, a must have disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! WOW! WOW! June 8, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is an awesome DVD. Best concert video I have ever seen, and I love concert videos. With my new OPPO Blu Ray player and a 73 inch screen with great sound system the sound and the video are just amazing. The concert is awesome too! Filmed over several nights at BB's clubs, it is the first live concert of BB King filmed in 13 years. I believe Amazon showed this as not being wide screen, but it is wide screen.

Buy it immediately. You will not regret it.

By j.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD has an excellent widescreen transfer and Dolby 5.1 and DTS 5.1 soundtracks. I preferred the DTS soundtrack. This 2011 (dated on package) DVD appears to be a re-issue of the 2009 Soundstage show in Chicago (Credits indicate filmed in 2008), which is a one night performance.

This DVD is as described by Amazon. There are a few Blu-Ray reviews that differ (which I partially based my decision on) - Amazon does overlap reviews of different formats and titles, which they did in this case.

NOTE: After my review, I checked Amazon, and there is an overlap of reviews on several different DVD titles. This is from the page I ordered my DVD -

B.B. King: Live (2009)
B.B. King (Actor), Charlie Dennis (Actor), Joe Thomas (Director) | Rated: NR | Format: DVD

ASIN: B004USUOUE

Song List: Everyday I Have the Blues, See That My Grave Is Kept Clean , How Many More Years, Downhearted, I Need You So, I Got Some Help I Don't Need, Thrill is Gone, Nobody Loves Me But My Mother, Let the Good Times Roll, Thrill is Gone, When The Saints Go Marching In, Key to the Highway

B. B. and his band are great. Nice Horn section. Great song list with one I had not heard before - See That My Grave Is Kept Clean. The concert is ~ 54 minutes and the bonus song is ~ 6 minutes.

As noted on Amazon, there are special guests. B. B. and his band perform the first four songs, which was my favorite part of the show. Then the guests roll in - Terrence Howard (vocals with B. B. on a few songs and the finale), Solange (vocals with B. B. on one song and the finale), and guitarist Richie Sambora (on a few songs, the finale and the extra bonus song).

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live B.B. King!!!! February 9, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a collage of 4 different concerts pieced into 1, so be prepared. Good to see him performing but sad to say he's getting older and has put on a LOT of weight which is not healthy. I also kind of wonder about his eye sight, being diabetic, he was led on and off the stage. That said, Great Performance! Each song is personalized with an introduction or story while the band played in the back ground. Historic, as he says. If you are a fan of B.B. or the blues this disc will complete ANY concert recording collection, especially one on Blu-ray.

I wish Amazon had a 3 Criteria rating that would make for a quicker and more accurate and fair rating of Cd's, DVD's and Blu-ray's.

1. Performance
2. Quality of Audio
3. Quality of Video (for DVD's and Blu-ray's)

1.*****
2.*****
3.*****

Bands that wish to have there performances recorded and recognised should be held to a standard. Poor audio, no matter how good the performance, is still a bad product. Those who would still purchase sub-standard audio quality recordings and rank that product highly are not doing the industry or the band justice. Demand better and we will get it, settle for less and that's what you'll get.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good BB King August 26, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Four performances by B. B. King in 2006 were selected to create this Blu-Ray disk. Here too another legendary artist has given the public a disk recorded recently with current technology as opposed to a tape transfer from years ago.

B. B. plays standards before a very adoring audience in Tennessee with an excellent band. He does not steal the show but rather makes room for the entire group to shine, and intersperses with his classic tales.

Both audio and video quality are as expected for a Blu-Ray disk- super. If you love the old man here's one more for the road.

2.0 out of 5 stars Way to Short of a Blu-Ray !!! April 10, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really purchased this Blu-Ray hoping it would be an OK one.
But as others have Commented is is way to Short.
And also I agree with others that I bought it mainly to hear and see BB King, Not-His-Guest !!!
If you purchase this Blu-Ray thinking you are going to hear BB King you are going to be Very Disappointed.
He is really only doing a very few full length songs without interruption.

I'm not saying the Guest were not good.
I'm saying I wanted to hear BB King not his Guest.

Beware people you have been, {Warned}........

Terry

BTW,
I don't usually give Negative reviews hardly ever.
