"Lucille represents early B.B. King at his finest. It's the last traditional blues album before 1969's Completely Well would establish a trademark brand of blues music mixed with lushly arranged string ensembles. By contrast, Lucille's arrangements are sparser, rawer, and simpler. King's own skills with an ES-355 Gibson are on full display, amidst a crew of famed blues session musicians like Irving Ashby on rhythm guitar, Lloyd Glenn on piano, Maxwell Davis on organ, and many more. Guitars squeal, bass and drums rumble, brass instruments blare, and King's powerful vocal howl complements Lucille's winding licks. It's an important piece of blues history that can't be overlooked."
