B.B. King - Live in Cook County Jail Click here to see this CD at!

By Ted Drozdowski

One of the greatest concert recordings of all time. How could it be less, with B.B. King performing some of his best material before a literally captive audience in an Illinois prison? "Worry, Worry" and "How Blue Can You Get" take on deeper meanings here, although King works the latter's camp lyrics as if he were in a juke joint. His mix of down-home humility and commanding stagecraft is instantly appealing. And his guitar barks, sings, and squeals with such authority that this is a bravura performance from the first bent, soul-searing note. A true desert-island disc.

"The "Chairman of the Board of all Blues Singers", Mr B.B. King is the one and only who can pull off such a show, in such a joint as Cook, on Chicago's South Side, where the blues is often cured by the blues. A man with great heart, and an album filled with that same heart that bleeds out terrific riffs and an explosive voice. Its one of the greatest shows I have ever heard, thanks Mr. King."

--Q. Thompson
