You can't move an inch without tripping over a superstar on this album of celebrity duets. On DEUCES WILD, B. B. looks beyond the blues world to collaborate with such unlikely folks as Willie Nelson, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, and even rapper Heavy D. On newly recorded versions of classic B.B. numbers such as "The Thrill Is Gone" (with Tracy Chapman) and "Paying The Cost To Be The Boss" (with the Rolling Stones), the legendary blues guitarslinger reinvents his own material to accommodate his famous pals, whose respect for King and enthusiasm for this project are apparent on each track. Most effective are the tunes that find B.B. paired up with veteran blues belters like Joe Cocker ("Dangerous Mood") and Van Morrison ("If You Love Me").

What the critics say...

Down Beat (2/98, p.59) - 3 1/2 stars (out of 5) - "Every so often, the venerable Mr. King records with various pop stars: [DEUCES WILD] finds him entertaining with characteristic warmth and sincerity on a program mixing old favorites and new tunes..."
