B.B. King: Love Me Tender (MCA)

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 5 June 1982

"HE HAS one musical ambition as yet unfulfilled: to make a series of classic albums. These consist of one album with a big band, one on which he would play only familiar old tunes like 'Don't Get Around Much Any More', one comprised of country blues of both the Nashville and Delta varieties, and finally, an album made as a tribute to his idol, Louis Jordan."
– Charles Sawyer, from B.B. King, The Authorized
