B.B. King & Kings of the Electric Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Big 3's budget-line 2010 three-disc set B.B. King & Kings of Electric Blues opens with a disc of early B.B., then gives way to a disc largely devoted to electric guitar blues before concluding with a disc that balances those same blues with a bit of jump. It's not quite a considered collection -- the songs don't necessarily flow logically from one sound to the next -- but it is quite enjoyable, serving up classics from B.B., John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Slim Harpo, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Earl King, Sonny Boy Williamson, Walter Horton, Etta James, Junior Wells, and Ruth Brown for a nice price.
