      Excellent transcription - accurate and spot on with correct keys and functional tab. Even 'throwaway' phrases are included and some backing riffs. A younger BB King at his best with his signature dynamics and phrasing . Recorded in Chicago in 1964 this has long been a classic and it is great to have a faithful transcription of the concert.
      Rapport with the audience not so necessary for the transcription but it was a significant component of the performance. Dynamics not shown but are in any case evident from the recording. Quite expensive - I almost expected a CD to replace my old LP.
