How Blue Can You Get? Classic Live Performances 1964 to 1994

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Owens

King has always been acknowledged as one of the most electrifing blues guitarists, as well as one of the best all-around entertainers that the genre has to offer, so it stands to reason that the compilation is filled with terrific music.

Even though How Blue Can You Get lacks the kinetic energy of a live concert, there's enough prime material to make it an essential addition to any B.B. King fan's library.
