A pioneering artist to say the least. Definitely in my top ten of favorite blues artists.

B.B. is the best! Thrill is Gone is the easy pick for favorite, but I'm partial to How Blue Can You Get.

Really, too many highlights to mention. I always enjoy the live version of Sweet Sixteen, Pts. 1 & 2 that was recorded live in Chicago on 11/5/66. Easy Listening Blues from the ACE album release of the same name is another favorite.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of B.B. King, too. A huge talent and, next to John Lee Hooker, my favourite blues singer - and although I never saw Hooker in person, I have B.B., and he was terrific!

Some of my favourite recordings of his are, Hummingbird, The Thrill is Gone, Bad Case of Love and his version of (I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons, whilst Blues on the Bayou and Let the Good Times Roll are my favourite albums of his.

Several years ago, there was an album recorded next to Eric Clapton. The whole thing was pretty cool.
