B.B. King - Easy Listening Blues (180 gram viny LP)

B.B. King - Easy Listening Blues (180 gram viny LP)
This quintessential WaxTime release includes one of B.B. King's earliest albums: Easy Listening Blues (1962), originally issued on the Crown label. This all-instrumental LP marks B.B. King's 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 "easy listening" King plays here with his usual authority, making occasional nods toward the rock & roll twist craze on cuts like Night Long and Hully Gully Twist. 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).

Available On LP:

Regular Price: $34.98
