"Singin 'The Blues" was released in the spring of 1957 at Crown Records for the first time and summarizes many of the up to this time most popular songs of BB King. The LP contained four No. 1 hits of the R & B charts: "3 O'Clock Blues" and "You Know I Love You" (1952), "Please Love Me" (1953) and "You Upset Me Baby" (1954 ) and other four songs that ranked among the top ten, also still "Blind Love" from 1953 and cover versions of Tampa Red's "Crying Will not Help You" (1955) and Gatemouth Moore's "Did You Ever Love A Woman" 1956 . To fill the album, nor was added an excellent alternative recording of "Sweet Little Angel". As John Broven notes in his liner notes: "1957 was" Singin 'The Blues "for the first time clear that BB King would become a major star," Absolutely groundbreaking material, and his classic hits..
