  • No matter how good the studio sessions were, B.B. King was at his best on stage in front of an appreciative, if not ecstatic crowd. This set, recorded at Chicago's premier black theater on Novermber 21, 1964, delivered just that. Despite the less than perfect recording conditions, at a time when technology had yet to catch up with the demands placed upon it, the King of the Blues delivers a definitive performance on a programm that includes his recent single "Help The Poor." Also included in this set is a clutch of songs that were responsible for much of his success, "Everyday I Have The Blues," "Sweet Little Angel," "It's My Own Fault," "You Upset Me Baby" and "Woke Up This Morning" among them. The band, including tenorman Johnny Board and organist Duke Jethro, is lean but tight, providing King with a springboard from which to leap into flights of immaculate guitar playing and singing.
