B.B. KING - MR. BLUES
A stylistically diverse LP from B.B. King, drawn from three different sessions dating from 1962 to 1963, the year of it's original release. The blues legend is backed by a variety of groups, the most thrilling of which is The Maxwell Davis Orchestra, which cut countless sessions for LA-based labels Aladdin and Modern Records (two of the premier West Coast rhythm and blues labels of the '50s and '60s). The blues legend is in fine form here, on another classic brought back to life by Rumble.
