B.B. King – Here’s One You Didn’t Know About: From The RPM & Kent Vaults (2015)

Posted by on August 3, 2017as


This 25-track CD of mostly previously unissued recordings are drawn from his sessions for Modern Records between 1954 and 1962. ‘Be Careful Baby’ is a rare thing – a B. B. King song that has never been released before in any version, while two tracks appeared on our 2014 RPM compilation ‘Speak Easy’. The version of ‘Catfish Blues’ is from a completely different session to the familiar issued version and from B. B. ‘s commentary appears to be the version he played on the road. There are many comments from B. B. and the band which provide an insight into the recording process and B. B. ‘s relaxed and informal manner in the studio. The CD ends with a previous unheard interview, recorded backstage at the Fillmore Ballroom in San Francisco with radio station KSAY at the 10/10 spot on your dial.
