Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

B. King's life and career have been gathered in this comprehensive volume.

Synopsis:

B.B. King is a national treasure. For more than five decades, he has been the consummate blues performer. His unique guitar playing, powerful vocals, and repertoire of songs have taken him from tiny Itta Bena, Mississippi, to worldwide renown. In this comprehensive volume, the best articles, interviews and reviews about B.B. King's life and career have been gathered. Learn how he first made his mark as a disc jockey in Memphis hawking Pepticon elixir and taking the moniker of the Beale Street Blues Boy; trace his early tours and recordings; see him be swept up in the blues revival; and finally, enjoy his fame as the greatest living exponent of the blues style.

Synopsis:

The best articles, interviews, and reviews about B.B. King's life and career have been gathered in this comprehensive volume. He turns 80 in September so the book is timed to take advantage of the well-deserved attention.
