B.B. King Selections From Ladies And Gentlemen...Mr. B.B. King on 2LP + Download
In 2012 Universal Music celebrated the late great B.B.King's 50th-anniversary signing to ABC-Paramount Records in 1962 with the multi-format career retrospective, Ladies And Gentlemen...Mr. B.B. King, a slick 10-CD, 194-track collection chronicling the bluesman's entire career from his first recordings in 1949 through to his most recent studio album.
In November 2015, Selections From Ladies And Gentlemen...Mr. B.B. King will be pressed on vinyl for the first time. The trimmed down 17-track, 2LP set collects the finest selections from the aforementioned career retrospective and includes such iconic B.B. King fare as "How Blue Can You Get?," "Sweet Sixteen," "The Thrill Is Gone," and "When Love Comes To Town" among others and is a welcome addition to any and all music collections.
"B.B. King is one of America's few, long-standing musical treasures whose stature has grown to an unassailable, international level...His warm, downhome vocal style, his distinctive, "talking" blues guitar playing, and his songs that sing of love's joys and hardships – Sweet Sixteen, How Blue Can You Get?, Help The Poor, The Thrill Is Gone and countless others – are all indelibly imprinted elements in the modern musical heritage." – Ashley Kahn
