2 LPs ON 1 CD Plus 7 BONUS TRACKS

This quintessential collector’s edition includes two of his lesser known albums, originally released by the Crown label at the onset of King’s career. B.B. King Sings Spirituals (1959) contains ten songs that are on the gospel side of B.B.’s repertoire. Even though the album is entirely devoted to spirituals, it didn’t really sound that different from his finest blues material. The second LP presented here, the long unavailable Twist with B.B. King (1962), is one of King’s most difficult to find albums. Both splendid titles have been remastered and packaged together on this very special release, which also features 7 bonus tracks from the same period.

PERSONNEL:

B.B. KING, lead vocals and occasional guitar, plus:

The Charioteers (female backing vocals, and handclaps),
The Southern California Community Choir (chorus),
Ralph Hamilton (bass), Millard Lee (piano), Sonny Freeman (drums),
Maxwell Davis, Johnny Board (tenor saxophone),
Lawrence Burdine (alto saxophone), Kenny Sands (trumpet),
among others.

Recorded in Los Angeles and Houston, between 1952 and 1961.
