Originally issued in 1969, B.B. King's Live And Well was helmed by a then 26-year-old Bill Szymczyk who later became one of rock music's most successful and prolific producers. The album consists of five live tracks (Side A), recorded at New York's Village Gate and five studio tracks (Side B). Thanks to rock star friends like Eric Clapton and Michael Bloomfield, B.B. King's name had become a common one in rock and guitar circles at the time and Live And Well became the late great blues legend's first album to enter the top 100.

Szymczyk gathered together a fine group of excellent young session players here including Al Kooper and Hugh McCracken, taking King's music to the next level with a more soulful and rocking approach in the process. Szymczyk writes in the liner notes, "We got together, what I consider to be, some of the best young blues musicians in the country and locked ourselves in 'The Hit Factory' for two nights. The results of those two nights are the "well" side of this album."
