iTunes Review

Is it possible for a man to hit his stride at 82 years of age? B.B. King's One Kind Favor makes a good case for answering such a question with a resounding yes. Of course his 24th studio album had some help from music legends, luminaries, and A-list players like T Bone Burnett on the mixing board, Dr. John on keys, Jim Keltner on drums, and Eric Clapton's bass player Nathan East. King's guitar playing actually takes a back seat on most of the opening song, a hushed and haunted rendition of Blind Lemon Jefferson's classic "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean," letting the players carry most of the weight until the end where his warm and toneful licks gradually lap up the fretboard of his guitar like campfire flames. This is not to say that One Kind Favor exudes predictable porch jams — On "Blues Before Sunrise" King turns Leroy Carr's piano pounding lament into a steamy, sultry roadhouse romp, and Lonnie Johnson's choral heavy "Tomorrow Night" gets the stripped-down gospel treatment with the kind of intense intimacy that only Burnett can produce. "My Baby Is Now," "Just To Be With You," and "Haunted House" all make for a truly rewarding triptych of bonus tracks.

Customer Reviews

all hail, the king has returned !

what a low down, roll licking, dirty, hot and sticky romp the backwoods of the missippi delta. that distinct wail of a man with his girl lucille, alerting your ears of a word gone wrong while enjoying the few good things left to be found. i defy you not to want to dance or bang your desk/car door while listening to this superb album. bb once again proves why he is the king; and we're more the grateful for the ride.

Still the King

Every year B.B King is alive it gives hope to the life of blues and this album not only has his signature sound,but his soul as well. B.B King proves that the blues can sound great,new and proves its the heart and soul of modern day music.

Who else but BB King

Universally hailed as the king of the blues, the legendary B.B. King was without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century. His bent notes and staccato picking style influenced legions of contemporary bluesmen, while his gritty and confident voice -- capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric -- provided a worthy match for his passionate playing. Between 1951 and 1985, King notched an impressive 74 entries on Billboard's R&B charts, and he was...
