3.0 out of 5 stars too little BB March 27, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I agree completely w/ L. Mo. Not even close to a great BB King album, but an all-star lineup that will sell. 'Live At The Regal' is perhaps one of the all-time best live blues recordings and gives us a glimpse of the kind of showman he was in his prime. My personal favorite BB album though is...'Indianola Mississippi Seeds'...great production, w/ guest appearances by Joe Walsh and Leon Russell...and one the coolest covers ever from the vinyl days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another stellar album from BB! March 26, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I have seen BB King in concert over twenty times in the past decade. Not once have I been disappointed. He is the consummate performer and host. His band, made up of musicians of whom most have been with BB for many years, are the tightest and most talented group I have ever heard. Part of BB's charm is how tremendous a host he is, both to his audience and to other performers joining him on stage. This album is another example of his assembling a group of diverse and extremely talented entertainers. There is plenty of BB to go around, and he shares it with all of us! You will not be disappointed. Buy this now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great one from the master March 20, 2012
By Kil Roi
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
If you need to own one B.B. King album, this may very well be the one. King, 86 years old, is as sharp musically and vocally as any blues player any age.

Here, in a live 2011 recording at the Royal Albert Hall, B.B. King is joined on stage with luminaries Susan Tedeschi and husband Derek Trucks, Ronnie Wood and Slash. What they've assembled is a consummate blues album that counterintuitively is blue and fun at the same time.

B.B.'s between-songs banter (and chatter during the numbers) lends the album, well, the King touch. His fretwork speaks for itself, but the acoustics in the Hall seem to give it that extra bit of magic.

His guests perform in a tall shadow though King is seated; no doubt they stand in awe, knowing that they shared the same stage in a moment in time.

Susan Tedeschi's voice blends well with King, especially on the standard "When the Saints Go Marching in." Derek plays a delicious slide on "Rock Me Baby." King approves.

Standout tracks: All of them. Relish it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Banter April 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of B.B. King for 40 of my 52 years and I know we'll miss him when he's gone, but... This is not the live album to own by B.B., even considering his special guests. The CD liner notes do not even give credit for on which song(s) the guest(s) appear. If this recording receives a Grammy nomination, it would be for Best Spoken Word Album (and yes, I've seen B.B. live). The 15-minute track "B.B. Jams With Guests" doesn't really go anywhere until the last two minutes. I've heard more complete songs at a sound check. Although the noodling (verb 1. to improvise a musical passage in a casual manner, especially as a warm-up exercise) by the guests are admirable, the only tracks that stand out are "The Thrill Is Gone" and "When The Saints Go Marching In". Download those two tracks if you must and explore the other live recordings by B.B. King recommended in the other reviews.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blues boy still bending blues at 86 April 17, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, MS

When B.B. King took the stage at Royal Albert Hall in London, my good friends at Shout Factory had the foresight to record the performance. That classic recording is now available to the public.
B.B. "Blues Boy" has come a long way from the small cabin he was born in on a cotton plantation outside Berclair, Mississippi.
When he was four, his father abandoned him, his mother remarried but was too poor to care for him, so he was raised by his grandmother, Elnora Farr in Kilmichael.
It just goes to show anyone can succeed if they have the right attitude and a lot of persistence. It's said B.B. uses the same band all the time but insists they stick to clean living, following instructions and never, ever be late.
He is a man who takes learning lessons seriously. In 1949, he was playing a dance hall in Twist, Arkansas. A barrel, half-filled with kerosene, was lit to warm the hall. Two men got in a fight over a woman knocking over the barrel. The dance hall quickly was caught up in the blaze. B.B. ran out, but remembered his guitar and ran back into the burning building to get it. Obviously, he made it out but two men lost their lives. He learned the woman's name was Lucille, so he named that guitar, and every one after that Lucille as a reminder to never do stupid things like "fight over women" or "run into burning buildings."
He's married twice, but the women couldn't compete with the 250 plus days he spends on the road. It's believed he's fathered 15 children, and is the grandfather to 50.
B.B., now 86, sounds as polished as ever singing and demonstrating his trademark bending of guitar strings on his blues solos. He covers some of his best songs including "Key To The Highway,"'"Rock Me Baby" and "The Thrill Is Gone."
Besides his regular band, he's joined by Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Ronnie Wood, Simply Red's Mick Hucknall and Shash.

3.0 out of 5 stars Or Not March 21, 2012
By L. Mo.
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The one B.B. King album to buy/own? Not. Once Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi come on stage (beginning with Rock Me Baby) it becomes their album and B.B.'s fretwork is kept to a minimum. Being a polite host, he lets Derek take most of the solos. Not that that's a bad thing--but it makes this less of a B.B. King album. It's good, but if you only want one, get Live At The Reagl. B.B. really tears it up on that.

B B King never made a bad album until this one! It should be re-titled "Dead at the Royal Albert Hall". Save your money.
