  "B.B. King--There Is Always One More Time"

B.B King - There is always one more time"B.B. King--There Is Always One More Time"
{2005 | Backbeat Books}

A new 352 page book about the Blues Ambassador and undisputed King of the blues, B.B. King, will be released on September 16th, 2005 in honor of B.B.’s 80th Birthday.

This book was written by David McGee, author of Go, Cat, Go: The Life and Times of Carl Perkins, The King of Rockabilly. McGee is also known for his contributions to Rolling Stone and as assistant curator for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

McGee combines both biography and discography, from B.B.’s childhood in rural Mississippi as well as interviews with producers and musicians that were part of B.B.’s recordings/sessions. What book on B.B. would complete without how a brawl led to the naming of King’s number one gal – Lucille?

While this book covers the King of the blues it should be considered a research aid on B.B.’s 51-year long career. I enjoyed the historical aspect as detailed information for each recording session included dates, musicians, songs, songwriters and even includes the producers and engineers.

Also note that B.B. will be playing in St. Louis Friday, September 23, 2005, at the Laumeier Blues Festival!

Ciao' for now, peace.
