Anna’s Pick of the Week: Singin’ the Blues - B.B. King

B.B. King is a rock n’ roll patron saint. With a such a huge body of work, it’s hard to know where to start, but B.B. hits the ground running with a smash of a first album in 1956. There isn’t a track on the album that isn’t filled with killer guitar licks, soulful singing, and toe tapping, heart gripping blues. Not only is his first album great, he was an incredibly dedicated performer, playing 342 shows that year alone. So before you reach for an anthology, give this early collection a whirl - it’s a true classic.
