's soaring debut LP for ABC Records – a mix of grand numbers that find the legendary BB
backed up in surprisingly soulful orchestra settings culled from bicoastal sessions in LA and NYC! BB King
has a signature style that's pretty strongly rooted in homespun, truthspeaking
rhythm & blues – and the strings, saxes and rich arrangements with the Belford Hendricks Orchestra, Maxwell Davis Orchestra, and Teacho Wiltshire Orchestra – captured in '62 and '63 – are just a step or two away from the groove that cats like Bobby Bland were working
at the time. Sweet stuff from a true King
! Titles include "Young Dreamers", "Be Myself", "Chains Of Love", "Blues At Midnight", "Sneakin' Around", "Tomorrow Night", "My Baby's Comin' Home", "Guess Who?", "You Ask Me", "I'm Gonna Sit In 'Til You Give In".
