Music Review: B.B. King: Austin City Limits (1982)

This 1982 concert has been recently replayed on Austin City Limits and available at PBS online.  This is likely related to his passing in May.  B.B. King is quite the musician and entertainer.  He can really handle his blues guitar, and he vibrates the notes in a crazy manner, giving that blues feel.  He also provides the vocals.  His whole band is good, and King shares the stage, there is piano solo, bass guitar, trumpet and saxophone, and King provides the lead guitar music.  It is amazing how King can take just a couple phrases, and entertain for five minutes.  He does audience sing along, and many things very well.  This concert has a lot to enjoy.
