Despite all that, it was a couple of years after I became a blues fan before I started picking up his albums. I think part of the problem was that there were so many albums to choose from and I just didn't know where to start. Part of it was that I was already familiar with him and there were these other great blues men and women that I was just discovering.
It's a pretty daunting task to select just three essential B.B. King recordings out of the hundreds of B.B. King albums on the market, but that's just what FBF is going to try and do today. As with previous installments of Three Essentials, these are just my essential B.B. King recordings. Your mileage may vary and I would love to hear what your three essentials might be......there are no wrong answers, so awaaay we go!!
