The album is known for lots of great stage banter, and whooping by audience members during songs (great audience interplay here!), and BB King invites it all with his quaint onstage chat. And now ladies and gentlemen, we would like to go back and sort of reminisce just a little bit, and pick up some of the real old blues. because you know there was no magic being performed in the studio, and you're gonna get the same talent level, if not more, in a live album along with the feeling that you are actually there with the band. This is the best I've ever heard the King sing. As many don't know, he was known for his vocals back then more than his guitar, and this album shows why. The range this man had is something many people don't know if you only listened to his work in his later years.
King’s first album for the Stax label combines his hard, unflashy guitar playing with the sleek sound of the label’s house band, Booker T. and the MG’s. Hits such as Crosscut Saw and Laundromat Blues earned King a new rock & roll audience. The sound he and Rick Rubin found on "I Can't Live Without My Radio" and "Rock the Bells" was harder and leaner than hip-hop had ever been.
