AllMusic Review by

This ten-track budget set from Direct Source includes the original versions of B.B. King's biggest hits, like "The Thrill Is Gone," "Everyday I Have the Blues," and "Sweet Sixteen." The selection is decent, but is marred by muddy sound which does not apply to the same King material released on major label CD's. For a more thorough trip through B.B. King's catalog, check out the multitude of greatest-hits packages available on Ace, MCA, and Virgin/EMI.
