  1. Every time I listen to B.B. King, I realize what a fantastic artist this man was – both an excellent guitarist who played sparingly but extremely effectively, and also had a terrific voice! He truly was a king! In this tune, it’s the build and the gospel type choir like in particular, even though it makes for a somewhat heavy production.
