WHY SO MANY LIVE TRACKS????
on May 10, 2005
First. I love B. B. King' s singing and his guitar playing even more. This is a collection of great performances. BUT, why ARE MOST OF THE TRACKS ON THE FIRST DISC< ALTHOUGH NOT STATED LIVE? Well, all of them are great, but what I expected were the studio versions except from the two numbers culled off Live at the Regal. This is an anthology, it's not entitled "Live Anthology". Plus, there is a nice CD called "How Blue can you get?", which is a live Anthology, so these selections were not necessery, although they are high quality music.
Three stars because of the inclusion of as many live tracks. The music itself is pure five stars, but be careful if you want the studio versions of B. B.'s tracks presented here. You Won't find them here and you may have somewhat strange feelings towards this CD.You can love it for what it does include but be angry too because it's not exactly what you wanted.
