A darn near perfect greatest hits collection. Great for someone who says, "Yeah, I like blues, B.B.'s cool." Because after hearing this, their life won't be quite the same. I can guarantee they will never listen to B.B. the same way again. Where B.B. plays clean and dare I say, wimpy, Albert was hard, funky, soulful, and dirty. Combining his MS delta blues with the Memphis soul of Booker T. & the MGs, with the great Al Jackson on drums, King's blues recordings simply have no equals. Even later, without the MGs, King used top notch musicians and cooley slid into the '70s. There are a number of great tracks missing from here, including "Wrapped Up In Love Again", "Drowning On Dry Land", and the Mack Rice penned "Playin' On Me", but for the most part, it is like I said, darn near perfect.
