soars into the 70s with this smoking
little set – a record that still holds onto all the raw energy of his best 60s recordings, but which also gives the whole thing an even more soulful focus too! There's no arranger credited for the core of the record – which is attributed to "everybody" in the group, which you can definitely hear in the wickedly spontaneous playing of the combo – especially the mighty drummer Herbie Lovelle, whose work here really gives King
a new sort of kick. Bert DeCoteaux adds a bit of larger backing
s at points, but usually very gently – in ways that are hardly noticeable at all – as BB
's guitar is right out front, wailing with lots of raw energy. Titles include "Key To My King
dom", "Confessin The Blues", "No Good", "You're Losing Me", "So Excited", and the classic "Thrill Is Gone".
