B.B. King is a national treasure and genuine musical phenomenon. For over half a century he has been the quintessential advocate of the Blues. He pioneered an elegant and distinctive guitar style which would permanently alter the way blues and rock guitarists play, inspiring Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and virtually every other acknowledged guitar hero of modern times. With his style, powerful voice and classic repertoire, King took an improbable journey from Itta Bena, Mississippi, to worldwide acclaim and renown.

This edition of The B.B. King Reader encompasses the greatest classic and contemporary essays dealing with the bluesman's music and life, a number of which have been anthologised for the first time. Follow B.B. through his own words and those of esteemed scholars of American music. Travel with the King Of The Blues from a Mississippi farm to his early days as a disc jockey; experience the creation of his first record; and savour his status as the greatest ambassador of the Blues.
