Midnight Believer

LP (Item 567300) ABC, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 46

One of the most tightly-produced of BB King's albums for MCA, but a set that's still filled with undeniable charm – and which really shows King more than able to step up to some well-deserved superstardom! There's a bit of an LA finish to the backings, but things are never too smooth – and BB's vocals and guitar both really shine in this setting – with inflections and edges that are just wonderful throughout! The balance is great – that rare ability that MCA had to serve up such records at the time – and titles include "A World Full Of Strangers", "Midnight Believer", "Never Make A Move Too Soon", "Hold On", "I Just Can't Leave Your Love Alone", and "When It All Comes Down". (Includes the printed inner sleeve.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A bit bluesier than some of Sonny's other records for Enterprise at the time – but still with some nice funky moments! The backing on the set has a compressed sweet Memphis groove – nice and soulful on the best tracks, slinking along in a slow funky groove underneath Sonny's harmonica ... LP, Vinyl record album
