Genre:
Label:
Format: 33RPM
Release Date:

Named after King’s guitar, this record finds B.B. adding some fresh ingredients to his already potent stew of traditional blues. With its biting brass and female back-up singers, “You Move Me So” is a funky, spiritual workout, whereas “I Need Your Love” finds the leader combining Sam Cooke-flavored vocalizing with a dash of rambling country-flavored piano. The title track is the most impressive and spontaneous number on this record, despite its near-ten-minute length. Done in a talking blues style, “Lucille” started out with King telling the story of his guitar while noodling around on her during a break. Correctly sensing that blues gold was being freshly served up, an excited Thiele had the engineer flip on the record button, preserving for posterity a conversation between a man and his guitar.
