With 84 tracks from 8 classic albums on 4 Cds you get an awful lot of music by B.B. King for your hard cash.

The downside is that this cheap as chips release has no liner notes nor a track ID on the Cds listing and .. well you add the rest.

The trade off is that the price is so cheap.

The real Gone label always have a digitally remastered sound which is often a good thing- but maybe check out other reviews for a more rounded review?
The whole shebang is held inside a double wide jewel case.

Amazon have not listed the tracks so I have.

I've also put the albums
It's 2 to a CD for the albums of course but at this price we cannot complain?
the music really does do the talking and how… how how how.

The albums are "Singin' The Blues (1957)",
"The Blues (1958)",
"King Of The Blues (1960)",
"B.B. King Sings Spirituals (1960)",
"My Kind Of Blues (1961)",
"Easy Listening Blues (1962)",
"More B.B. King (1962)" and
"Compositions Of Duke Ellington And Others (1960)".

There are probably more BB King records out there than just about any other artist, if you take into account the compilations and his "duet" albums but for sheer value alone these 8 albums from the late 50s/early 60s stand out. His versatility is on display here as the albums move between jazz and raw blues seemingly at will so there is something here for any blues aficionado if you aren't already familiar with these albums. As re-issues go, this is one of the best.

Not sure there are 8 classic albums here, but it is still well worth putting in your BB collection. The roots of what he has become ring loud and clear.

With Albert and Freddie gone, Riley 'Blues Boy' shows his roots and is still the guitar player everyone wants to play with.
Great history compilation.

These are great albums. The recording is not as sophisticated as modern recordings but the music is of the highest order.

These are some very early recordings from the beginning of the 60s. Top quality recordings and guitar playing. To be honest I like Mr Kings earlier works because the studio mix is better. More Guitar and lessof the Horn section IMHO.

Beware. Although the price is good, only 6 of the 8 "Classic Albums" are BB King Blues albums. Tracks 11 to 20 on Disc 2 is B.B. King Sings Spirituals, which is all spirituals and no blues. Tracks 11 to 20 of disc 4 is "Compositions of Duke Ellington and Others" on which B.B. King does not feature at all. Confusingly, the tracks 11 to 20 of disc 4 identified on the disc case are B.B. King tracks but they are absent from the disc. So that's 20 non-blues tracks out of 80 tracks. This amounts to a clear sales description offence.
