LIVE AT THE APOLLO is a straight reissue of a famed 1990 recording by blues guitar master B.B. King at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater. Opening with a gospel-tinged take on U2's "When Love Comes To Town," the set features nine of King's most beloved songs, including his signature song, "The Thrill Is Gone." Backed by an 18-piece big band, King sings and plays at his most impassioned throughout. Though it contains no new material, the 2008 reissue is remastered.
