Editorial Reviews:

B.B. King returns to his blues roots with the help of producer T Bone Burnett on "One Kind Favor,". The legendary artist is backed on the effort by pianist Dr. John, drummer Jim Keltner and bassist Nathan East. The track list includes such blues chestnuts as Big Bill Broonzy's "Backwater Blues," Lonnie Johnson's "Tomorrow Night," Blind Lemon Jefferson's "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean" and T-Bone Walker's "I Get So Weary."

Summary: A kind favor from B.B. King
Comment: As a Blues fan this album is a big favor for me. I like better B.B. King of the old times. But this new cd is something else. Like his early days, B.B. King is focused on creativity in singing as well as playing the guitar.

There are those Blues Ballads only B.B. King can make the justice with: "Get These Blues Off Me", "My Love Is Down", "Waiting For Your Call".

Some songs are in style B.B. King didn't do so far. "Tommorow Night" , a sweet Ballad B.B. challenges himself it is a bit outside most of his repertoire over the years, "How Many More Years" the rough Chicago Blues, both are dealt well in his hands.

My 3 favorite were "I Get So Weary", because the power singing, "The World Gone Wrong", because this old melody was revived so beautifully in the hands of B.B. King, and "Backwater Blues" for the guitar on this slow Blues.

Summary: Your Majesty, your crown's still lookin' fine
Comment: Memphis, TN lays claim to two Kings and one still rules with his Queen, Lucille, by his side. BB King hardly sounds like he's over 80 in this collection of blues standards. You've heard this music before and you'll hear it again, but mark my words you will remember these versions of the songs.

Other reviewers have said it better. I'm just contributing to this product's star rating, but I will say honestly. You are doing yourself a good dozen kind favors when you buy this CD.

BB, may you reign long and prosper.

Summary: BB is the King of Blues
Comment: I have really enjoyed 'One kind Favor' by BB, one of his best, but can't give it 5 stars. While it is very good, it's not as good as 'Blues on the Bayou', my all time favorite CD by BB.
