B.B. King is a force of nature. Despite being well into his 80s the blues singer remains a powerful live force.
Rushing through his glittering back catalogue, B.B. King has enough skill and stamina to prove that Lucille - as he once christened his beloved guitar - can still thrill audiences around the globe. Universal recently pieced together a new box set, containing some of the singer's most vital performances.
Coming on the 50th anniversary of his signing to ABC-Paramount Records in 1962, 'Ladies And Gentlemen... Mr. B.B. King' is a lavish production. Spread across ten discs, the box set contains 194 archive recordings spanning his first visit to a recording studio in 1949 to the present day.
Housed in a deluxe box, the collection also includes a 72-page silver gilded hardback book, featuring essays from Ashley Kahn and Dick Shurman. Out now, Clash have been given a copy to give away.
To stand a chance of winning, just tell us the name of B.B. King's guitar...
