B.B. King – Makin’ Love Is Good for You

On this thoroughly enjoyable outing, the elder blues statesman does not stray from the formula that made the Grammy-winning Blues on the Bayou such an artistic and commercial success. Recorded at Dockside Studios in Lafayette, Louisiana, and once again produced by B.B. himself, the disc features a similarly rough and tumble electric trad-blues style. The five new songs are up to his usual standards, and all 14 tracks benefit greatly from the lithe, assured support of B.B.’s touring band, the B.B. King Blues Boys. His voice and guitar playing are supple and slinky; if only we all could be doing such vital, wonderful work at the age of 74.
