Biography

Blues legend B.B. King has been spending time this year 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. ... Read more in Amazon's B.B. King Store

Product Description

The seventh volume in Ace's ongoing mid-price series based on B.B. King’s original Crown LPs with bonus tracks. "More B.B. King" was released in 1961 and is an entertaining mix of booting R&B, blues ballads and instrumentals, drawn primarily from the Kent singles of the period. The bonus tracks comprise eight related Kent singles that have mainly escaped the reissuers’ net. These are quality recordings orchestrated by the great Maxwell Davis. As always, there is an eye-catching front cover, while compiler John Broven supplies the explanatory background notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars reissued rarities for b.b. fans. 7 May 2007
By r.j. zurek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The latest Ace reissue of the Crown label's B.B. King catalog is "Blues For Me" from 1961. Re-titled "More B.B. King", this disc is augmented by hard to find Kent 45s from the early to mid sixties.

"Blues For Me" was actually a gamble for its time. Blues sales were suffering, and the label owners, the Bihari brothers, wanted to market B.B. outside of the Blues audience. As a result, two of the tracks here, "Don't Cry Anymore" and "My Reward" are ballads with strings. B.B. displays range and a crooning talent that would appear years later in his collaboration with Diane Shuur, "Heart to Heart".

"Bad Case of Love" and "Get Out of Here" feature some truly magical B.B. guitar solos, and B.B. had the good taste to revisit "Bad Case of Love" in 1998 on the highly recommended "Blues on the Bayou". "Bad Luck Soul" is the most adventerous selection here with its stop-time horn arrangement. Two instrumentals close out the original album, the B.B. penned title track and Louis Jordan's "Just Like a Woman".

The eight bonus tracks are Kent 45s, some appearing for the first time on cd. "You're Gonna Miss Me" is a Muddy Waters country blues updated with B.B.'s urban approach, and "I Wonder Why" features the great saxophonist Plas Johnson of "Pink Panther" fame.

Now in his seventh decade as a recording artist, B.B. King's music is a very accessable form of blues; really there is something for everyone. "More B.B. King" adds to this collection with some music that has been overlooked for far too long.
5.0 out of 5 stars ALTHOUGH THIS B.B. KING ALBUM HAD NO HIT SINGLES RELEASED FROM IT WHEN 'ORIGINALLY' RELEASED IN THE 60's... 12 Nov 2007
By Mr. Nightshift - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...It has taken on a New-Lease-On-Life due this Expanded Edition that includes 8 (Eight) Bonus Tracks to boot! So what was an almost pale Album (In it's 'Original' Vinyl release) now is a 'Beefy' Blues Classic!. Key Tracks from the 'Original' Release included "Bad Case Of Love" & "You're Breaking My Heart", and now with Bonus Non-Album & B-Sides Tracks like: "Lonely", "And Like That", and "I Wonder Why" (This Track has been a Club Favorite in the Carolina's for several years now) makes the Complete Package VERY Enjoyable!!! Oh! There are also several First-Time Stereo cuts included too!
