What's surprising about B.B. King is how he brightens up any genre he steps into, whether it's lowdown or uptown or big band or radio-friendly soul. He plays with anybody and everybody with consistently wonderful results. Can't recommend this set enough!
Having been a B.B. King Fan for over 30 years I was pleased to find that many of the tracks on this 4 CD set are currently unavailable in this format - as such, it is as much a worthwhile purchase for established fans as it is an essential one for the first time buyer.
The "bookset" style box has been lovingly put together with the authorisation of B.B. himself and has 70 pages of high quality rare photgraphs as well as reflections from the "Chairman of the Board" himself.
The audio quality on all 4 discs is simply stunning and supercedes many of the previous MCA album remasters from the mid 1990's.
In short,this set is thoroughly recommended without reservation.....
I absolutely love all the songs on this collection. Every last one, no questions asked. This music is not old; it is timeless. Pure, powerful, complex, uplifting, moving... I need not say more. Best of all, people will still be listening to this stuff LONG after all those no-talent, industry-manufactured hacks like Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, etc fade away and are forgotten. This is REAL music right here, people. This collection deserves to be owned by anyone who calls themselves a music lover, hands down. Buy it. You will not regret it.
