This is the fourth volume in Ace's ongoing mid-price series based on B.B. King's original Crown LPs with bonus tracks. "The Soul Of B.B. King" represents the blues giant's twelfth and final Crown LP, released in 1963. As ever, B.B.'s deep blues roots from Mississippi and Memphis are easily discernable. There are eight bonus tracks, including three unreissued Kent singles and two previously unreleased cuts. None are currently available on Ace CD. Beautifully mastered, this "Crown" series - compiled and annotated by John Broven - continues to roll out at the high standard befitting B.B.'s enviable status as the standard-bearer of the blues.
