Editorial Reviews

B.B. King is one of America's few, long-standing musical treasures whose stature has grown to an unassailable, international level. Despite his 85 years, King continues to tour, perform and to grow in influence, casting a shadow that reaches far beyond the blues scene from whence he first came. His warm, down-home vocal style, his distinctive, talking blues guitar playing, and his songs that sing of love's joys and hardships Sweet Sixteen, How Blue Can You Get?, Help The Poor, The Thrill Is Gone and countless others are all indelibly imprinted elements in the modern musical heritage. --Ashley Kahn

Format: Audio CD
Considering his iconic status - a properly decent box set chronicling Mississippi's B.B. King and his staggering longevity in a Blues recording career that now boasts 66 years has been a long time coming. But at least you can say that Universal have done the man proud (especially on the mammoth 10-disc set). Here are Woke Up This Morning details...

Released September 2012 - "Ladies & Gentlemen...Mr. B.B. King" comes in 2 forms - a 4CD Box Set and a 10CD version - and to confuse matters both are rather lazily given the same title. The 10-disc Box Set is catalogue number Universal 0600753384992 (Barcode 600753384992) - while this review is for the 4CD version on Universal 0600753390863 (Barcode 600753390863) and that set breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (1949-1964) - 77:67 minutes:
1. Miss Martha King (1949 USA 78" on Bullet 309, A)
2. When You Baby Packs Up And Goes (1949 USA 78" on Bullet 309, B-side to "Miss Martha King")
3. B.B. Boogie (1950 USA 78" on RPM 304, A)
4. She's Dynamite (1951 USA 78" on RPM 323, A)
5. Three O'Clock Blues (1951, USA 7" single on RPM 349, A)
6. Woke Up This Morning (1953, RPM 380, A)
7. Blind Love (1953, RPM 395, A)
8 When My Heart Beats Like A Hammer (1954, RPM 412, A)
9. You Upset Me Baby (1954, RPM 416, A)
10. Ten Long Years (1955, RPM 437, A)
11. Bad Luck (1956, RPM 468, A)
12. Troubles, Troubles, Troubles (1957, RPM 492, A)
13. Early In The Morning (1957, RPM 492, A)
14. Everyday I Have The Blues (1959, Kent 327, A)
15. (I've) Got A Right To Love My Baby (1960, Kent 333, A)
16. It's My Own Fault (1960, Kent 333, B-side to "(I've) Got A Right To Love My Baby")
17. Walking Dr. Bill (1960, Kent 350, A)

one of the most important music figures who expanded into so many other styles, however make no mistake about it, he is truly a bluesman and this set showcases what many have already heard and then what hadn't been heard and the results are some truly compelling material that is very good. and this is what a box set is truly about finding and getting those gems and unknown tracks that trace the start and then the material along the way that bring so much together. between his voice and lucille his guitar and the tone he has displayed with are something else to the ears. this is a must for true die hard B.B.King fan. some incredible material here.

I've been a B.B. King fan since I started listening to music (a while back), and already have a lot of his music. I'd thought I'd heard more than the average fan. But there are songs on these discs I've never heard before, never knew existed. And, I think, one of the coolest things is that though many of the songs you've heard before, you've only heard them one way. Here, there might be an earlier version or a live version, or the same song in a different context. It's witnessing the evolution of B.B. from WDIA's Riley "Blues Boy" King to just B.B. King to The King of the Blues, listening to him grow as a singer, guitarist, and entertainer.
The book, though I'm not far into it, is fabulously written with awesome pics. And it's got silver-lined pages. How cool is that?
I'm taking these discs out one time, transferring them to my itunes, then I'm going to find a way to display them as artwork.
What a treasure!

This 10CD set spans the impressive and consistent career of Mr. Blues Boy King aka Riley King - nearly 60 years of recorded music from 1949 to 2008. Each of the discs holds approximately 70 minutes of music and a couple of obscure sides from Mr. King's work in supporting diabetes education and research are included. Otherwise many of these 179 tracks are available elsewhere. Like Louis Armstrong, everything B B King does is professional even when the mood of the moment is for duets with less accomplished performers. The magic of this set, which is not cheap, is that it is a labor of love for UMG and many of the tracks retain still their magic after many years of listening - e.g.," It was the Queen of England who said aren't you B.B.King?". Depressed? Listen to Mr. King! One peeve - totally personal - I would have loved to have had a remastered version of "The Thrill is Gone" from the Old Miss live album - which was poorly mastered for CD - the LP being far better.
The hardback book that accompanies the CDs is beautifully produced - despite a typo - would that Sony Legacy provide Bill Withers the same dignified treatment rather than slapping 9 already released CDs into a box. The mastering is first rate as is the selection of track order. Despite the book and the box, the packaging is just okay - putting the CDs into disc trays bound into the book rather than crappy cardboard sleeves would have provided a less fragile environment for the music. Opening the tightly shrink wrapped sleeves requires care!
One final point that I did not understand was why this was an "Amazon exclusive". There seemed to be no extra CD or mp3 file associated with the purchase. It turns out that Amazon apparently has the exclusive to sell this set from UMG right now - another source who had listed the set for $84 was unable to deliver it because "the manufacturer removed it from their release schedule" - the shape of things to come?
