Filmed as part of the award-winning American TV series, Live By Request captures B.B. King in sparkling form playing songs requested by fans and celebrity friends including Willie Nelson and Tony Bennett. The show was filmed in New York in 2003 and originally broadcast live on the A&E Network. Alongside the requested tracks there are three songs where B.B. King is joined by another legendary guitar player, Jeff Beck and the fretboard fireworks really fly. B.B. King is the true king of the blues and a consummate live performer with a charisma and charm uniquely his own. Live By Request shows him at his best.
