This is the 10th and penultimate volume in Ace's mid-priced, remastered series based on B. B. King's original Crown LPs. "The Blues" was B.B. King's second Crown LP. Drawn from his RPM singles recorded from 1951-58, this album traces his early development into a world class artist. The six bonus tracks from the vaults come from the same time period. Included are three cuts from a withdrawn session for Chess Records in 1958, and two RPM singles that have never been reissued. Notes and compilation, as ever, are courtesy of "The Vintage Years" B.B. King box set producer, John Broven. B.B. King has just celebrated his 80th birthday and is still performing.
