Song of The Day: B B King – Just a little bit of Love
Recently passed away bluesman BB King lived on stage more than sixty years. He was featured in multiple documentaries, series, interviews and movies. It is hard to pick a favorite song of this great ambassador of the blues. This song above was recorded in the Village Gate in New York City in 1969. It is a mesmerising live performance, complete with sexy gospel singers and a brash brass section belting out “All I want is a little bit of love”.
Live & Well album 1969
” Just A Little bit of Love” is featured on the sixteenth studio album Live & Well of B. B. King released in 1969. This song has a great vibe. The soulful blues singing of B.B. is killing me and the backing vocals are legendary.
The bassline is like you’d expect en often see in B.B. King’s song full of Boogie. Through all that musical joy the King puts away some great solos.
OnWikipedia Producer Bill Szymczyk Ezplained the album’s title.
“We got together, what I consider to be, some of the best young blues musicians in the country and locked ourselves in ‘The Hit Factory‘ for two nights. The results of those two nights are the “well” side of this album.”
