I highly recommend seeing/buying this excellent biography of BB King. It is told through interviews with him and people who knew and/or performed with him, and includes lots of performance footage but not complete songs. You really see the poverty and racism he and other Blacks in the American South endured and get a better understanding and appreciation of the blues music.

King was truly a wonderful, kind and humble human being. He probably did more to raise the status of blues music than anyone else. I had always known him as a guitar player, but really he was most famous as a blues singer with hit songs, and what a great voice he had! As a guitarist, he had a great and unique sound and style and vibrato but he also had limited technical skills, as he openly admits. For example, he had to be the lead player in the band because he cannot play chords and sing at the same time.

This film was shot near the end of his life, so it does capture all the important events, achievements, albums, etc. Also, it is well filmed in high definition (except for the old footage). The film looks and sounds very good. My only complaint is that it does not give full performances of songs from his peak period. However, there are 2 full bonus songs from late in his career, but with guest guitarists who are featured more it seems.

Enjoy!

As much as I'm sorry I missed so many legendary performers from the earlier days, I am equally greatful to have seen BB King many times over the years. I owe that to his work ethic. This film reminds me of my gratitude and how it was possible.
Thank you Riley !
