    This is pure blues, in 1972 B. B. King was in great shape and this is the recording of a memorable concert. It kind of feels like youre there, in Kansas City while youre listening to this record; King talks to the public, he introduces, joking, his great musicians and plays wonderfully his guitar Lucille. A record that no blues lover should be without.This album is a masterpiece and deserves much greater acclamation. It captures B.B. Kings guitar playing at its finest and cements his position as a guitaring legend to anyone in doubt. The sensational playing in this album defines the concept of soulful playing.
    To my disappoint, I usually find that B.B. Kings albums are drowning in backing orchestration, with too much percussion and too many brass instruments. The arrangements in this album however, are much simpler and the lack of backing instruments allows B.B. Kings guitar playing and epic singing to dominate. A simplified approach gives a record a much more soulful feel, which is much more suiting than the usual jovial big-band sound which I find inappropriate for the genre (unfortunately there are still 2 or 3 songs on the album where this style is used, including the introduction so dont be put off straight away). Every track on this album is great and features something unique.
