Album Review

The combination of King and the well-oiled Philly rhythm section that powered hits by the O'Jays, Spinners, and Stylistics proved a surprisingly adroit one. Two huge hits came from this album, the Stevie Wonder/Syreeta Wright-penend title track and "I Like to Live the Love," both of them intriguing updates of King's tried-and-true style.

Customer Reviews

Philly Soul meets Delta Blues!

Loved this album ever since i was a kid. Nice to hear B.B. sing and play deep in the pocket with the legendary Philly rhythm section. Blues is funk and funk is blues!

This album is 1973 all over.

B. B. King is a part of my past. When I got my first apartment at 19, I played his albums everyday that summer, and I can still remember how it felt. The warm breeze through my windows, the soft sunlight, and this crazy, bluesy guitar like the soundtrack of my new life. I never met the man, but I loved him. He will be missed.

Between 1951 and 1985, King notched an impressive 74 entries on Billboard's R&B charts,...
