B.B. King has brought some of his favorite musicians together for a show at his club on Beale Street in Memphis, and what a smoker it is. They're all having a great time, as is the audience. There are many interviews with B.B. in which he talks about the blues and reminisces about his early years. The sound quality is excellent, and the picture is very colorful but a little blurry. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that there's only 30 minutes of music. It's inexcusable to have all these musicians together and only release 30 minutes of music. The actual concert must have been longer than that. Highlights are 'Ain't Nobody's Business' with Ruth Brown, and Albert Collins on 'Call it Stormy Monday.' At one point Buddy Guy screws up the lyrics and blurts out an expletive, which brings a big laugh from B.B. Pardon me for bringing the race issue in where it doesn't belong, but I find it very curious that the musicians are 95% black and the audience is 95% white. Don't miss this if you already love the blues, or if you want to find out why others like it.
