Product Description & Reviews

This ain' no one-night stand this time B.B. and Lucille are here for an extended stay! 77 tracks, 30 never on CD and seven never anywhere else, covering the career of the most influential blues guitarist of all time in chronological order. Everyday I Have the Blues; The Thrill Is Gone , and Goin' Down Slow all the classics are here, along with B.B.'s work with Bobby Bland, Duke Ellington, etc., documented by a 72-page color booklet with notes from the man himself! This four-CD box set remains the absolutely definitive B.B. King collection, with 77 recordings and a biographical book that contains the great singer-guitarist's own remembrances of his decades-long career. It samples every stage of his development, from his days struggling to craft his music in the shadow of influences like T-Bone Walker and Lonnie Johnson to his latter-day pairings with rockers like Bonnie Raitt and Gary Moore. The one constant is his open-hearted singing and the soulful, contemplative solos he squeezes from his beloved guitar Lucille. These discs, of course, embrace all his essential hits, from his first--1951's "Three O'Clock Blues"--to his 1970 smash "The Thrill Is Gone," which took King to the pop charts and made him a household name. If this package is too lavish for the budget, try the excellent Best of B.B. King, Volume 1, which collects many of King's great early works. --Ted Drozdowski
