"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.
