When it comes to the greatest rockin' bluesmen in history, at the top of the electrified traditional list is B.B. King; at the top of the contemporary list is Eric Clapton. Riding with The King brings the two living legends together for an entire album for the first time. When it comes to rockin' blues, Riding With The King is as great as it will ever get.
Blues legend BB King performs live at New York's notorious Sing Sing prison for a Thanksgiving concert in 1972. Folk singer and activist Joan Baez also makes a guest appearance, along with The Voices of East Harlem gospel choir.
Classic live performances from the blues legend, recorded at three separate gigs between 1960 and 1977. Tracks include 'Got My Mojo Working', 'Back At the Chicken Shack' and 'Blow Wind Blow'.
A major influence to such greats as Eric Clapton and Jerry Garcia, blues guitarist King is featured here playing on the show THE!!!!BEAT, a showcase for the strange collision of Southern blues and the mid 1960's "Mod" craze. Performing at the height of his talent, King displays his guitar genius with several amazingly rendered songs. In addition, a 1973 concert performance in Sweden is included.
John Mayalls Bluesbreakers classic album from 1967 has been digitally remastered and now boasts an extra ten bonus tracks including the A and B sides of the singles 'Curly', 'Suspicions' and 'Double Trouble'. Also included are the songs Please Dont Tell' and 'Your Funeral, My Trial' only previously available on the Decca compilation, Thru The Years. Decca. 2007.
