Hardly an easy listening album at all – given that the legendary BB King
is at the height of his powers, and turns out some wonderful work throughout! However, there is one difference that might warrant the title – the set's all instrumental, and makes for an even greater focus on King
's great guitar work than some of his other early records for Crown – served up here with a raw, raspy sound, and lots of complicated solos that really take off in the expanded non-vocal setting – with an overall vibe that's a bit like some of Freddy King
's great instrumental work at King
Records! Titles include "Easy Listening Blues", "Rambler", "Slow Walk", "Walkin", "Hully Gully", and "Confessin".
