B.b. King - Easy Listening Blues + 4 Bonus Tracks (VINYL ALBUM)
Release Date: 03/25/16
This quintessential WaxTime release includes one of B.B. Kingâs earliest albums: Easy Listening Blues (1962), originally issued on the Crown label. This all-instrumental LP marks B.B. Kingâs tenth budget-priced album. That title is a bit misleading, considering that King, who might be smooth and urbane in some respects, rarely recorded music that could be categorized as âeasy listeningâ. King plays here with his usual authority, making occasional nods toward the rock & roll twist craze on cuts like âNight Longâ and âHully Gullyâ. He is backed on the album by Lloyd Glenn on piano, Maxwell Davis on organ, Ralph Hamilton on bass, and Ted Curry on drums (no horns were booked for the dates).
