Living blues legend B.B. King has assembled a new album of duets featuring a staggering roster of collaborators. Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Koko Taylor, Etta James, Albert Collins and Ruth Brown are among King’s co-stars (as if he really needed any).

Those who think the blues are downbeat and depressing are urged to check out this joyous, spiritually soothing treat.
