The cover shows BB decked out with a plaid black and white dinner jacket, a white-on-white shirt and bow tie, setting a dress code that was to become something of a trademark in later years.

BB felt that the time was right, as his band was tight and he had taken years to hone the set into an audience-friendly barnstormer.
However, the record did manage to find its way across the Atlantic to the UK, where it was held in high reverence by the members of the burgeoning Surrey Delta guitar community. John Mayall, Eric Clapton and Peter Green have all cited this album as one of the most influential for them, but another breakthrough for BB King was a matter of only a few years away Omnibus Press.
