AllMusic Review by

B.B. King's King Biscuit Flower Hour captures the legendary blues guitarist in concert in the '80s. The presence of George Benson on "I Got Some Help I Don't Need" and "Just a Little Love," and Johnny & Edgar Winter on "Goin' Down Slow," suggests that the concert was more special than it actually was. In reality, it was simply an average concert with B.B. running through average material; the only classics were "How Blue Can You Get" and "The Thrill Is Gone." The performances are competent, but not inspired, making the disc really of interest to hardcore B.B. collectors, especially since there's a lot of better live B.B. on the market.
