This dream collaboration between these two fret-veterans is definitely one of the best records to cruise down the pike for some time, and is destined to become a Blues classic.

The first track Riding With The King is as smooth as the Caddy Clapton is driving on the cover. And don't be fooled by the cover because B.B doesn't take a back seat for long.

On songs like "Three O' Clock Blues" these legends trade licks like two old friends sitting down to do a little catching up. They actually are old friends and it's just a feel-good project for everyone concerned. Perfect for someone who is a newcomer to the Blues, and essential for collectors.
