The Men Who Make The Blues: B.B. King
Max Jones, Melody Maker, 4 January 1969
B.B. KING is among the most popular of the newer-generation blues-men; and he has certainly been the most influential. Charles Keil, who devotes a chapter of his Urban Blues book to King, calls him "possibly the best of the big name blues singers." Sheldon Harris wrote: "B.B. King is an authentic, the kind that so many Johnny-come-lately one-hitters are trying to be. King is really where it's from."
