The Thrill Is Gone

With help from longtime fan Eric Clapton, legendary bluesman B.B. King has scored a Top 10 album. Any idea why?

Not that either Clapton or King has made much of a fuss on studio recordings. Throughout their careers, both Clapton and King have struggled to reach the level of enthusiasm in the studio that they routinely summon in concert (and concert recordings like King's definitive Live at the Regal, or Clapton's Just One Night). Fortunately for Reprise, consumers are there to supply whatever enthusiasm these performers lack. Small wonder, then, that King and Clapton have erected a tribute to their former selves, sidestepping the issue of whether they have anything more to give.
