Chris Thomas King's new collection features songs recorded at B. B. King's Blues Club in Memphis on November 22, 1997, and it is a rare treat for his fans. This is a well-rounded collection with selections like "C'est La Vie" and "I'll play the Blues for You" representing his more traditional work and songs like "Blues From Da Hood" and "KKKrossroads" reflecting the style of blues, rap and hip-hop he created. He turns up the heat in his steamy renditions of "L. A. Angel" and "My Pain, Your Pleasure," the type of numbers he does with class. Mr. King's versatility and dynamic presentations make all these styles successful.

His guitar work on this quality recording is outstanding, particularly on songs like "I'll Play the Blues for You," "KKKrossroads," and "C'est La Vie" where it has an almost haunting quality. But the most exciting aspect of the collection is the opportunity it gives listeners to go back in time and hear one of this artist's early live performances.

This collection is a part of Mr. King's roots and an important part of blues history. Live on Beale Street is a treasure. --- Shannon Riley, amazon.com

On Me, My Guitar and the Blues, Chris Thomas King ventures out into eclectic musical territories. King sings and plays all the instruments on his first disc for the Blind Pig label. Recorded in New Orleans, this release retains some of those Crescent City funk influences while "Superstitious Blues," "Gambling Woman," and Robert Johnsons' "Stones in My Passway" are gritty acoustic delta blues. However, the majority of this release finds King reaching for a broader more popular approach that will likely turn off blues purists. "Born Under a Bad Sign" injects hip-hop into this blues classic, "You Are My Heaven" is comparable to the soul sound of Robert Cray, while the synth laden "Stay Just As You Are" would be the obvious pick for crossover radio play specifically going after a more mainstream pop audience. --- Al Campbell, allmusic.com

Chris Thomas King has been on a roll since his involvement, musically and as an actor, in O Brother Where Art Thou?. A Young Man's Blues collects a number of tracks recorded between 1989 and 1991, taking advantage of King's newfound fame to make sure that these earlier tracks get a wider hearing. The mostly self-penned material is fairly straightforward, and one can hear King drawing from a number of musical influences as he carves out his own style. "Plaquemine Blues," for instance, evokes what Jimi Hendrix might have sounded like if he'd written about social issues, while the opening notes of "I'm Gonna Make It" remind one of a later-day Eric Clapton. The arrangements and production (by Bruce Bromberg) walk the line between a bluesy roots sound on "The Game" and harder rock on "Itch." There's also a lovely, mostly acoustic track, "The Devil's Daughter," that was previously unreleased. The only drawback to the collection is that a number of the songs lack distinction, and one gains the impression that King is in the process of searching for his own voice here. Fans interested in the guitarist/singer's roots, as well as lovers of electric blues, will nonetheless enjoy A Young Man's Blues. --- Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., All Music Guide
