Collecting tracks from such a long period gives you an indication of how B.B. King developed over the years.However the live album purist in me struggles with the idea when there are so many event based live albums of the blues legend available.
I don’t know the source of these tracks but even if you’re on a limited budget, I find it hard to come up with a reason why you’d skip over Live At The Regal, Cook County Jail or Japan for this compilation.
I suppose it avoids repeating different versions of the same song but, for me, one of the fascinations of live albums is how songs can be interpreted differently as time goes by.
I also have a problem for giving up songs from his peak period in the 1960s and early 1970s for songs from later in his life.
