    More info at:

    B.B. King is the greatest living exponent of the blues and considered by many to be the most influential guitarist of the latter part of the 20th century. His career dates back to the late forties and despite now being in his eighties he remains a vibrant and charismatic live performer. B.B. King has been a frequent visitor to the Montreux festival, appearing nearly 20 times, so choosing one performance was no easy task. This 1993 concert will surely rank as one of his finest at any venue. With a superb backing band and a great set list its a must for any blues fan.

    The thrill is gone
    The thrill is gone away
    The thrill is gone baby
    The thrill is gone away
    You know you done me wrong baby
    And you'll be sorry someday

    The thrill is gone
    It's gone away from me
    The thrill is gone baby
    The thrill is gone away from me
    Although, I'll still live on
    But so lonely I'll be

    The thrill is gone
    It's gone away for good
    The thrill is gone baby
    It's gone away for good
    Someday I know I'll be open armed baby
    Just like I know a good man should

    You know I'm free, free now baby
    I'm free from your spell
    Oh I'm free, free, free now
    I'm free from your spell
    And now that it's all over
    All I can do is wish you well

    Whoa, I don't want a soul, baby,
    hangin' around my house when I'm not home
    I don't want you to answer the door for nobody, baby,
    oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

    I don't want your sister comin' by,
    because the little girl she talk too much
    If she wanna come by to visit us,
    tell her to meet us Sunday, down at the church
    'Cause I don't want a soul, baby,
    hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
    Yes, I don't want you to answer the door for nobody, baby,
    oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

    If your mother wanna visit us,
    tell her I get home bout the break a day
    And that's too late to visit anybody, baby,
    so, tell her to please stay away
    'Cause I don't want a soul, baby,
    hangin' around my house when I'm not at home
    Yes, I don't want you to open the door for anybody, baby,
    oh, when you're home and you know you're all alone

    Now, if you feel a little sick, baby,
    and you know you're home all alone,
    I don't want the doctor at my house, baby,
    you just suffer till I get home
    'Cause I don't want a soul, baby,

  • BB King - Why I Sing The Blues - Live In Africa 1974

    6:21



    B.B. King Live In Africa '74 is a rare - extremely rare - intimate view of
    B.B. King in concert. At age 49, having crossed over to wide popularity with his show
    at the Fillmore West in 1968 and secured his fame with the 1970 hit The Thrill Is Gone,
    B.B. stands onstage before Muhammad Ali and a crowd of 80,000 on the continent his
    ancestors left in chains and gives one of the most thrilling performances of his life. The
    King of the Blues (B.B.), Soul Brother #1 (James Brown) and other African-American
    artists on the bill reveled in the return to their cultural motherland for a gala affair that was
    attended by fans and journalists from all over the world.

    The backstory around this perfonnance is rich. Behind B.B. is a large orchestra,
    made up of core members ofB.B.'s touring band - pianist Ron Levy, drummer Sonny
    Freeman and saxophonist Bobby Forte - plus studio musicians recruited (mostly) from
    New York, including renowned session guitarist Larry Carlton. Directed by Hampton
    Reese, B.B.'s longtime friend and musical tutor (you'll see him in his plaid sport coat
    conducting the band), this collection of musicians achieved their amazing performance
    after a single rehearsal in Kinshasa. Hampton wrote the charts for all the songs in the set,
    and every musician was playing from those charts.

    Of the musicians who played that concert from B.B.'s 1974 touring band, only
    Ron Levy is still living. Here are some of his recollections of the unforgettable trip to
    Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) and their historic performance there:

    To perform in Africa - the land of his ancestors, at this stadium event before
    80,000 - plus crazed, hot, sweaty, dancing and bouncing heads and soulfully
    pained hearts -- must have had a very special personal significance for B.B.,
    as it did for us all. We all realized this was not just another gig. It was history,
    good history. We were all very proud to be a part of it. As far as the set went,
    we performed 8.B.'s most famous hits. I have to say, this was probably the
    first lime this crowd ever heard - or heard of - B.B. King. but as usual he
    left them wanting more, as well as an indelible memory of his sincere personal
    passion and deep-felt blues.

    He definitely connected with them like the beloved king he is. If you're a
    B.B. King fan, you are in for a rare treat with B.B, King Live in Africa '74. If this is
    your introduction to the King of the Blues, you'll understand why he is so loved the
    world over.

    Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer, electric guitarist, songwriter, and record producer. King introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending and shimmering vibrato that influenced many later electric blues guitarists. King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and is considered one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname The King of the Blues, and one of the Three Kings of the Blues Guitar along with Albert King and Freddie King. King was known for performing tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing at more than 200 concerts per year on average into his 70s. In 1956, he reportedly appeared at 342 shows. King was born on a cotton plantation in Berclair, Mississippi, and later worked at a cotton gin in Indianola, Mississippi. He was attracted to music and the guitar in church, and began his performance career in juke joints and local radio. He later lived in Memphis, Tennessee, and Chicago, and toured the world extensively. King died at the age of 89 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 14, 2015, from congestive heart failure and diabetic complications.

    B.B. King in concert. At age 49, having crossed over to wide popularity with his show
    at the Fillmore West in 1968 and secured his fame with the 1970 hit The Thrill Is Gone,
    B.B. stands onstage before Muhammad Ali and a crowd of 80,000 on the continent his
    ancestors left in chains and gives one of the most thrilling performances of his life. The
    King of the Blues (B.B.), Soul Brother #1 (James Brown) and other African-American
    artists on the bill reveled in the return to their cultural motherland for a gala affair that was
    attended by fans and journalists from all over the world.

    The backstory around this perfonnance is rich. Behind B.B. is a large orchestra,
    made up of core members ofB.B.'s touring band - pianist Ron Levy, drummer Sonny
    Freeman and saxophonist Bobby Forte - plus studio musicians recruited (mostly) from
    New York, including renowned session guitarist Larry Carlton. Directed by Hampton
    Reese, B.B.'s longtime friend and musical tutor (you'll see him in his plaid sport coat
    conducting the band), this collection of musicians achieved their amazing performance
    after a single rehearsal in Kinshasa. Hampton wrote the charts for all the songs in the set,
    and every musician was playing from those charts.

    Of the musicians who played that concert from B.B.'s 1974 touring band, only
    Ron Levy is still living. Here are some of his recollections of the unforgettable trip to
    Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) and their historic performance there:

    To perform in Africa - the land of his ancestors, at this stadium event before
    80,000 - plus crazed, hot, sweaty, dancing and bouncing heads and soulfully
    pained hearts -- must have had a very special personal significance for B.B.,
    as it did for us all. We all realized this was not just another gig. It was history,
    good history. We were all very proud to be a part of it. As far as the set went,
    we performed 8.B.'s most famous hits. I have to say, this was probably the
    first lime this crowd ever heard - or heard of - B.B. King. but as usual he
    left them wanting more, as well as an indelible memory of his sincere personal
    passion and deep-felt blues.

    He definitely connected with them like the beloved king he is. If you're a
    B.B. King fan, you are in for a rare treat with B.B, King Live in Africa '74. If this is
    your introduction to the King of the Blues, you'll understand why he is so loved the
    world over.
