B.B. King playing “I’ve Got a Good Mind to Give up Living” live! It’s probably safe to say that when a song starts out with lines like, “I’ve got a good mind to give up living—and go shopping instead—to pick out a tombstone and be pronounced dead,” you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a winner on your hands! Although B.B. King was not the original writer of this song, like all the other songs he covered, he made it his own, and he owned it. This recording was relatively early in B.B.’s career and is a real gem.
