B. B. King - Singin’ The Blues

"Singin’ The Blues" - B. B. King (g, voc) & The Maxwell Davis Orchestra

"Singin' The Blues" was issued as Crown 5020 in spring 1957 and featured some of B.B. King's best-loved songs up to that point. The LP included four #1 R&B hits: "3 O'Clock Blues" and "You Know I Love You" (1952), "Please Love Me" (1953) and "You Upset Me Baby" (1954); four other top ten hits; plus "Blind Love" from 1953 and covers of Tampa Red's "Crying Won't Help You" (1955) and Gatemouth Moore's "Did You Ever Love A Woman" from 1956. To fill out the album, a superior alternate take of "Sweet Little Angel" was included. As John Broven observes in his notes: »In 1957 "Singin' The Blues" gave the first real indication that B.B. King was destined to be a major star.« Absolutely seminal material; his classic hits.
