Spotlight on the blues: BB King - Blues On The Bayou

B.B. King plays a kind of universal blues, an eveyman's blues. I know a lot of people who claim that they do not like blues music, but they like B.B. King. This makes me laugh and kind of proves my point. It really comes down to being able to tap your foot and getting into the grove.

Blues on the Bayou is a laid back, tap your foot, get into the groove kind of album. It easly puts you in the mood, and many who have heard it love it.

When he made this album Mr. King said this was a "back to basics jam ... with my conviction that this current band is my best ever." I think he hit it on the head.
