B.B. King - I Can't Lose (Kent 393)

I Can't Lose

It is hard to imagine a more pivotal and important figure in the history of American Music than B.B. King. After putting Beale Street on the map in the early fifties, he went on to dominate the R&B charts for decades to come. In the 1970s, through groundbreaking albums like Indianola Mississippi Seeds (which actually climbed to #26 on Billboard's Pop album chart!), he popularized The Blues, and brought it to a whole new audience of white kids like me. During his long lifetime, B.B. changed the world with his music, and became one of the most universally loved and respected musicians of all time along the way.

Rest in Peace, Blues Boy...
There Must Be A Better World Somewhere!
