More Info:

Three CD set. Universally hailed as the King of the Blues, the legendary B.B. King was without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the second half of the 20th century. His bent notes and staccato picking style influenced legions of contemporary bluesmen, while his gritty and confident voice -capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric- provided a worthy match for his passionate playing. In The Many Faces of B.B. King we will review many of his most celebrated collaborations including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Etta James, Chaka Khan and Pat Metheny, enjoy plenty of his hits that spanned a six-decade career and finally, enjoy a list of who's who in The Blues Hall of Fame with names such as Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Slim Harpo and Sonny Boy Williamson. The Many Faces Of B.B. King is a fantastic album that showcases the work of one of the most celebrated musicians from our time. Also, remember that it is not available on any streaming platforms.
