Abstract:

"B. B. King is a national treasure. For more than four decades, he has been the consummate blues performer. His unique guitar playing, powerful vocals, and repertoire of songs has taken him from tiny Itta Bena, Mississippi, to worldwide renown. Now, for the first time, the best articles, interviews, and reviews about B. B. King's life and career have been gathered in one volume. Learn how he first made his mark as a deejay in Memphis hawking "Pepticon" elixir and taking the moniker of the "Beale Street Blues Boy"; trace his early tours and recordings; see him be swept up in the blues revival; and, finally, enjoy his fame as the greatest living exponent of the blues style."--BOOK JACKET.
