Catalog No. BGOCD602
Completely Well/Live In Cook County Jail by B.B. King (1970 / 1971)
First time as a 2 on 1 CD for these (UK) 1970 and 1971 albums, originally released on the Stateside and Probe record labels respectively

'Completely Well' contains B.B. King's signature song 'The Thrill Is Gone' and eight other tunes, six of which were written by him - mainly in a co-writing capacity. This was King's breakthrough album which achieved him the acclaim that he so deserved and made the world sit up and take notice of him. It also marked the change from B.B.'s 'old' style to that identified with his later ABC recordings, with the inclusion of horns and overdubbed strings

'Live In Cook County Jail' catches B.B. firing sparks on all eight cylinders, with an audience that are totally over the moon with his playing. It includes possibly the best live version of 'The Thrill Is Gone' as well as fabulous versions of classics like 'Everyday I Have The Blues', 'How Blue Can You Get' and 'Sweet Sixteen'
