Universally hailed as the King of the Blues, the legendary B.B. King's nearly seven-decade career came to a close when he passed away in Las Vegas, on May 14, 2015. One of the most imitated of all the blues giants, King projected tremendous presence on stage, both singing and playing guitar. His musical influence around the world remains incalculable.
King recorded most of his best work between the mid ‘50s and the early ‘60s, including signature tunes and blues staples like “Sweet Sixteen,” “Treat Me Right,” “Peace of Mind,” “Come By Here,” “3 O'clock Blues,” and “Everyday I Have the Blues,” to name just a few. The aforementioned songs, and many others, have been included on this remastered 2-CD set, which compiles all of B.B. King's outstanding songs released on 7” singles (A & B sides) by the Kent label between 1958 and 1962. Contained here is the cream of the crop from B.B. King's hit-making stretch for Kent Records during his most inspired years. Without a doubt, this is the material upon which B.B.'s kingdom was built.
