B. B. King died in February 2015 at the age of 89.
He was a guitarist and singer who can be described
without exaggeration as one of music’s legends.
Ten of his original albums make up this box and in
addition there are some interesting bonus tracks
for every blues fan. B. B. stands for his pseudonym
“Beale Street Blues Boy”, his guitar he named Lucille
and they were an unbeatable duo that sold millions of
records and took every noteworthy prize in the music
business.
Had it not been for music he would have spent his life
as a farm labourer with no perspectives. He earned
his living as a tractor driver on the cotton plantations
of white farmers and in the 1940s saved up enough
money for his first guitar. His great breakthrough
came with the song “The thrill is gone”. There has
been virtually no greater influence on generations of
rock musicians than King, from Jimi Hendrix through
Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Rolling
Stones.
In all there were 70 singles and 25 albums he
recorded for the Bihari brothers on their labels RPM,
Crown and Kent, and they were sold exclusively in the
black quarters of American cities. Between the years
1951 and 1992 he had 75 titles in the American R&B
charts. Many fans will enjoy the rare1960 Crown LP,
that King made with Duke Ellington’s (the legendary
jazz-pianist) orchestra, as well as the scarce 1962 LP
“Twist with B. B. King”, both included in this box
