B.B. King – “There Must Be A Better World Somewhere” Live
He’s Not Just A Bluesman, He Is THE KING!
“There Must Be a Better World Somewhere” is a track from B.B. King’s twenty seventh studio album of the same title. Released in January 1981, it contains five other tracks. A year after its release, it was given a Grammy Award for Best Ethnic or Traditional Recording. Along with “The Victim,” “There Must Be A Better World Somewhere” was among the album’s most successful songs. I especially love how it begins with basic tones and B.B. King’s powerful and soulful voice filling the air.
Universally hailed as the reigning king of the blues, the legendary B.B. King is without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half century. His bent notes and staccato picking style have influenced legions of contemporary bluesmen, while his gritty and confident voice — capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric — provides a worthy match for his passionate playing.
Known for releasing one classic hit after another, it’s no wonder this track became another massive success. And though it sounds great on record, nothing beats listening to him perform live. He gives so much life into one song and keeps the audience begging for more. He is easily the most iconic bluesman ever!
