Movie Reviews

BB King Live
Jason S. Mason | Orlando, FL | 02/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own many BB King concert DVD's from over the years. I have also been fortunate enough to see Mr King live in concert twice over the past three years. This concert recording totally captures the magic that happens at a BB King show. It shows his solid and tight band, his interaction with the audience, and his mucial talent/gift of guitar and singing that he still holds at the age of 82 years young. This DVD capitalizes on all of the modern recording technology available including the fantastic camera angles with cranes and hand helds. Plus, this is the first concert showing the band members names on the screen and how long they've played with Mr King. Also, I liked how just about each segment also titled which club and date they were showing us. In recent years, A & E released "Live By Request" and The Jazz Channel recorded and released a live concert by BB King and they were both fantastic, but "Live" is the total package of great use of technolgy, engineering, camera angles, audience response, and capturing the mood of actually being there. If you're a BB King fan or a blues fan, don't hesitate to order this DVD and the companion CD. If you're not, do it anyway! You won't regret it."

"Upon seeing BB King perform recently in Altoona,Iowa,I was impatient to order his latest DVD. Finding it online was easy,the vendor shipped it quickly and I have watched it with great pleasure.Filmed in the fall of 2007 from his night clubs in Nashville and Memphis,the audience reaction and professionalism of the recording crew to BB's genuine desire to entertain was an unqualified success. Special features on the dvd enhance the content and are something not to be missed. I would rate it with five large stars for this Blues Master at 82 and still going strong....An exceptional value.....Jazzman joe"
I love B. B. King
