Not yet rated | write a review
Celebrated blues man, B.B. King, knows how to rock a crowd. His stage shows are legendary things of beauty - emotional thrill rides that soar up only to crash back down into a heap of wallowing musical misery. Live at the Regal is the next best thing to spending an evening with the man. The wailing guitars of "How Blue Can You Get?" are the stuff on which King has built his lengthy career. And - in case you happened to forget - the man also has a beautiful set of pipes. He rounds out this rousing performance by showing off his voice on passionate shakers like "Please Love Me" and "It`s My Own Fault."

Editorial Notes

Personnel: B.B. King (vocals, guitar); Kenny Sands (trumpet); Johnny Board, Bobby Forte (tenor saxophone); Duke Jethro (piano); Leo Lauchie (bass); Sonny Freeman (drums). Recorded live at The Regal Theatre Chicago, Illinois on November 21, 1964. Includes liner notes by Dick Shurman. All tracks have been digitally remastered. 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.
