Rolling Stone - 12/24/70, p.54
"...The album displays the vital and ever-developing nature of this man King, who has been playing and wailing the blues for more than 20 of his 45 years..."
Q - 9/95, p.141
3 Stars - Good - "...Eagle Joe Walsh and Carole King are in the supporting cast and it's fine, if hardly packed with surprises..."

INDIANOLA MISSISSIPPI SEEDS was King's first album on ABC.
Personnel: B.B. King (vocals, guitar); Leon Russell (piano).
The years 1969 and 1970 were busy ones for B.B. King. When he wasn't playing one of his 300-plus gigs, King was in the studio laying down tracks that included "The Thrill Is Gone," his only Top 20 hit. 1970's INDIANOLA MISSISSIPPI SEEDS was a record that fit in well with the musical climate of the time. Up and coming artists such as Carole King and Leon Russell contributed their talents to these predominantly B.B. King-penned numbers.
The female King plays piano throughout, giving "You're Still My Woman" an Aretha Franklin flavor whereas "Until I'm Dead And Cold" is infused with a sanctified air thanks to her playing and the inclusion of a brassy horn section. No slouch on the eighty-eights himself, Russell (along with a then unknown Joe Walsh) provides funky accompaniment on "Ask Me No Questions" and the instrumental "King's Special." The blues legend himself lays Lucille aside long enough to give himself solo piano accompaniment on the minute and a half "Nobody Love Me But My Mother." Leon Russell's biggest contribution to INDIANOLA is of his oft-recorded "Hummingbird." Along with playing piano, the musically gifted Okie also conducts a string section and gospel-inspired chorus of female back-up singers that includes Merry Clayton.
