Biography

Blues legend B.B. King had been spending recent years thinking about "The B.B. King That Was." There is his bricks, mortar and memory project down in a Mississippi blues crossroads, his very own B.B. King Museum, which acknowledges his past. And then, his new Geffen Records CD One Kind Favor which puts the blues maestro in competition, not with other players, but himself. "The ...

Product Description

"B.B. King is one of America's few, long-standing musical treasures, whose stature has grown to an unassailable, international level. Despite being 85, King continues to tour, perform and grow in influence, casting a shadow that reaches far beyond the blues scene from whence he first came. His warm, down-home vocal style, his distinctive, talking blues guitar playing, and his songs that sing of love's joys and hardships such as "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

This 4-CD album celebrates B.B. King's 50th Anniversary signing to ABC-Paramount Records in 1962.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Considering his iconic status - a properly decent box set chronicling Mississippi's B.B. King has been a long time coming (his Blues career has now reached the staggering longevity of 66 years). But at least you can say that Universal have finally done the great man proud (especially on the mammoth 10-disc set). Here are Woke Up This Morning details...

Released September 2012 - "Ladies & Gentlemen...Mr. B.B. King" comes in 2 forms - a 4CD Box Set and a 10CD version - and to confuse matters both are rather lazily given the same title. The 10-disc Box Set is catalogue number Universal 0600753384992 (Barcode 600753384992) - while this review is for the 4CD version on Universal 0600753390863 (Barcode 600753390863) and that set breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (1949-1964) - 77:67 minutes:
1. Miss Martha King (1949 USA 78" on Bullet 309, A)
2. When You Baby Packs Up And Goes (1949 USA 78" on Bullet 309, B-side to "Miss Martha King")
3. B.B. Boogie (1950 USA 78" on RPM 304, A)
4. She's Dynamite (1951 USA 78" on RPM 323, A)
5. Three O'Clock Blues (1951, USA 7" single on RPM 349, A)
6. Woke Up This Morning (1953, RPM 380, A)
7. Blind Love (1953, RPM 395, A)
8 When My Heart Beats Like A Hammer (1954, RPM 412, A)
9. You Upset Me Baby (1954, RPM 416, A)
10. Ten Long Years (1955, RPM 437, A)
11. Bad Luck (1956, RPM 468, A)
12. Troubles, Troubles, Troubles (1957, RPM 492, A)
13. Early In The Morning (1957, RPM 492, A)
14. Everyday I Have The Blues (1959, Kent 327, A)
15. (I've) Got A Right To Love My Baby (1960, Kent 333, A)
16. It's My Own Fault (1960, Kent 333, B-side to "(I've) Got A Right To Love My Baby")
17. Walking Dr. Bill (1960, Kent 350, A)

I just adore BB King, but this boxed set supersedes King Of The Blues and The Early Years.

King of The Blues was great, but it wasn't comprehensive enough: the Early Years (on ace now deleted) did what it said on the tin, and provided a comprehensive overview of BB's recordings from 192-1962, just prior to him leaving ABC. While many of the recordings on The Early Years were re-recorded, even as far as Blues On The Bayou, Riding With The King, and Makin' Love Is Good For You, the Bihari Brothers centred solely on singles for the Chitlin Circuit. Once BB went to ABC, following in the footsteps of Ray Charles, and once Sidney Seiderberg took over as manager, BB became an amazing album artist, providing us with some excellent material.

Add to that, BB King's Live At The Regal, a support gig in 1969 for The Rolling Stones (documented on the 40th Anniversary Get Yer Ya Yas Out), The Thrill Is Gone, and albums recorded in London, with Stevie Wonder, Bobby Bland, and The Crusaders, and BB becomes the ambassador of the blues. However, the feeling is that BB King thoroughly deserves it, and this boxed set only accentuates just how much he does.

BB King, like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Billie Holliday, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, inhabits every song that he records, be it Willie Dixon's Don't Go No Further, Tony Bennett's On My Word of Honour, Roy Hawkins' The Thrill Is Gone, Blind Lemon Jefferson's See That My Grave is Kept Clean, Clarence Carter's Back Door Santa, Lowell Fulson's Three O Clock Blues and Reconsider Baby. Some of his albums haven't been too great, i.e. Love Me Tender, and, like many artists, he went through a bad patch in the late 80s, only to bounce back with There Is Always One More Time.

I would recommend this box set for all B.B.King fans. It covers his glittering career and I am in seventh heaven listening to all the songs. Great presentation with comprehensive booklet.

This is the second time, i tried to actually purchase this, (i was ripped off on an auction site), after a legal battle i managed to get a refund, when i noticed this was for sale, i immediately contacted this seller, and he was brilliant, so when my funds became available.........BANG!!!...I hit the buy button, and i have to say i am glad i did, i have been listening to it non stop, songs i have never heard by the Blues master before, it is worth paying for, there is a 4CD version, but i wanted to be greedy and get the 10 (so i did), thank you Mr Seller and thank you B.B, you are still missed.....

With the other reviewer. I also have the mid-90's 4 cd set King Of The Blues, but this leaves that standing. About as comprehensive as you can get for an artist that's been around for over 60 years. Yes there may be omissions, you can't please all the people,all of the time. But for a brilliant over view of BB's long career this set certainly deserves 5 stars. And what value compared to prices I have seen in High Street stores
