This is a wonderful film, with loads of detail and recollections from BB King's early days. You can tell they really made an effort to provide as full a picture as possible. Looking forward to watching it over time, and combining it with other sources for one of our greatest national treasures. Two critiques.

1) WAY too much time was given to people who seem really tangential to the story. This is not an MTV documentary. So, fully 70% of the fan-musician commentary should have been replaced with footage of BB King himself and a thorough expose on his musical catalog.
2) NO information from his extensive family and very little from his band members. Families are complicated, but surely there were a few that could have shared new stories of value.

Critique notwithstanding, I give this 5 stars because it's so lovingly done and you are left wanting to hear more, not less.

Solid documentary. Really addresses the hardships of growing up poor and black in Mississippi and of his early career. Some interview footage from other celebrities is recycled from previous interviews and docs (like some of the Keith Richards stuff), but isn't it always? Really enjoyable and eye opening.

Just an outstanding, heart warming documentary on the life of the most influential blues guiartist of all time. Great performances by the Icon of the Blues with special guest playing and discussing how important the legend has been to the Blues. A must see by anyone who loves Blues Music.
