B. B. King

Live DVD

Review by Larry Toering

The blues master lets it all hang out on this fantastic performance which includes Terrance Howard, Solange, and Ritchie Sambora.  Every second is covered tastefully and very well captured on this Image Entertainment release with a particularly sharp DTS mix. From “Everybody I Have The Blues” and “The Thrill Is Gone” to “When The Saints Go Marching In” and everything in between on these twelve tracks of greatness are featured exquisitely. It doesn't matter if you're seventeen or seventy, this is for anyone interested in the blues, and the one who defined it as well as anyone likely ever will. The guests add plenty to the proceedings and  help tremendously in their own right, making it all the more enjoyable. There are a lot of B.B. King DVD's out there, and this is one of the best performances of them all.
