Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Peter Doggett.
Recording information: Fairfield Halls, Croydon, England (10/14/1978-06/20/1998); Glasgow Jazzfest (10/14/1978-06/20/1998); Hammersmith Odeon (10/14/1978-06/20/1998); Maida Vale (10/14/1978-06/20/1998).
This collection of live B.B. King recordings from the U.K. offers a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the legendary bluesman's concert performances from different eras. The album is dominated by tracks from a 1978 London show and a 1998 appearance in Croydon. While King's voice is noticeably raspier on the later cuts, his piercing guitar work sounds undiminished by the years. A couple of tunes each from 1991 and '89 performances round out this release, which focuses largely on B.B.'s best known songs, like "How Blue Can You Get" and "The Thrill Is Gone" (the only song here to appear in two different versions).
