AllMusic Review by

Universal's single-disc Icon is a good 12-track collection of B.B.’s basics of the late ‘60s and beyond, anchored by the standards “How Blue Can You Get?,” “The Thrill Is Gone,” “Hummingbird,” and “Ain’t Nobody Home,” then selecting some pretty good cuts from King’s latter-day records. It is not necessarily a definitive introduction, but rather a good sampler of his mature work.
