Quatrième de couverture

"BB KING TAPS INTO SOMETHING UNIVERSAL .... HE CAN'T BE CONFINED TO ANY ONE GENRE. THAT'S WHY I'VE CALLED HIM A 'GLOBAL MUSICIAN,'" - ERIC CLAPTON

Like a celebration thrown by B.B. for his countless fans, The B.B. King Treasures brings remembrances, photos, and rare and personal memorabilia together in a magnificent collection. Numerous illustrations and 12 removable facsimile reproductions - among them a farming record from his old days as a Mississippi sharecropper and a postcard from a sixteen-year-old B.B. to his sweetheart - provide the atomosphere for the party. The entertainment is a jam session, led by the King of the Blues himself, of rare and never before published quotes and stories from B.B., his friends, and people he worked with over the years, The 60-minute CD features two previously unreleased songs - one from B.B.'s first-ever recording session with ABC Records in 1962, the other from a 1971 London studio session - along with selected interviews.

the first illustrated book published by B.B.King, The B.B.King Treasures presents a one of a kind look inside the legacy of the foremost blues singer and guitarist of our time.

Since B.B King started recording in the late 1940s, he has released more than 50 albums, many of them considered classics, and has become the most renowned blues musician of the past 40 years. The recipient of numerous honours, he has been nominated for 24 Grammy Awards and was given a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 1987. In 1990, he received the Presidential Medal of the Arts. He was an award recipient at the Kennedy Center in 1995. In1996, he published his autobiography, Blues All Around Me, with coauthor David Ritz.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have! 24 août 2005

If you are even a casual fan of B.B. King. Do yourself a favor and get this book. When it was announced, I was just happy to see a new book dedicated to the "King Of The Blues." But once I received the book and looked through it some, I was truly impressed. I was not even expecting the removable artifacts. Things like concert riders, posters, and programs have been reproduced and included. The photographs are top notch and many of them are very rare. This book was long overdue.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Treasures fit for fans of the King of the Blues 19 novembre 2005
Par R. Weinstock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Those looking for a present for a blues lover (or themselves) could do far worse than purchasing an absolutely wonderful new coffee table book plus more devoted to the King of the blues. The B. B. King Treasures : Photos, Mementos & Music from B. B. King's Collection is by King, Dick Waterman and Charles Sawyer. Sawyer, who wrote the first book-length biography of King, The Arrival of B.B. King, contributes a concise biography from King's days growing up in Mississippi to his days as an ambassador for the music. The remainder of the book is filled with King's recollections as given to Dick Waterman who supplements these recollections of growing up, working on the farm, moving to memphis, touring and crossing over. There are not only some terrific photographs (many are very rare), but also some reproductions of memorabilia including his sharecropping account from 1940, mostly tickets, programs and posters for his shows, along with sheets shoqwing how much he was earning prior to Sid Seidenberg taking over King's management in the late sixties. You can see him from his WDIA days to receiving the musical equivalent of the Nobel Prize in Sweden with the King of Sweden handing the award to him. In addition there is a cd with King's verbal recollections and some unissued tracks. This is a multi-media feast for fans of one of the true legends of world music. Compiled in part to celebrate his 80th birthday, The B.B. King Treasures, is a treasure.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A bluesman's journey 7 novembre 2005
Par twangmon - Publié sur Amazon.com

Packed with amazing photos, album artwork, removable memorabilia, and detailed first-person recollections, The B.B. King Treasures chronicles the life of the world's best known and most beloved bluesman, Riley B. King -- "The Beale Street Blues Boy." The beautifully designed and printed 160-page hardback also includes a one-hour audio CD with more than a dozen interviews and two previously unreleased songs, cut with a full band in 1962 and 1971.

We follow King through his childhood in Indianola, Mississippi, and then move on to Memphis and the first years of his career performing on WDIA radio. Kings' decades spent working the chitlin' circuit and later as a globe-trotting star are thoroughly documented, as is his current status as elder statesman of the blues. It's a highly visual journey with page after page of eye candy, as well as reproductions of posters, postcards, ledgers, contracts, concert programs, tour stickers, receipts, and even a vintage business card.

King made music during turbulent times, particularly in terms of civil rights, and many of his quotes shed light on what it was like to be an African-American musician during the days of segregation. But King always tells his stories without rancor, and his honesty, humility, and respect for other musicians -- many of whom add testimonials of their own -- shine through his words. The man is very observant, and it's fascinating to explore American history and the evolution of blues, rock, and the electric guitar through his eyes. If you love King's music, this book will draw you even deeper into its embrace.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read for blues fans... 4 janvier 2006
Par The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Though possibly a bit unlike adults my age, I am a bonafide blues lover and THE B. B. KING TREASURES: Photos, Mementos & Music from B. B. King's Collection is a remarkable look into the background and life of legendary blues singer B. B. King. In it he details his early childhood and growing up on a farm, to his young adult days, touring various parts of the country and his candid views on segregation and the Civil Rights era.

While the book itself is a wonderful collector's item and can be displayed proudly as a coffee table book, the best parts to me were: the included CD which has a collection of interviews with the singer, as well as two unreleased songs, the numerous pull-outs of old letters, photos, programs and posters, and the respect he shared with and bestowed upon others. THE B. B. KING TREASURES succinctly depicts the life and times of B. B. King, his thoughts on many issues, including race relations, and especially music. It is perfect for the blues lover in your life and a great tribute for B.B. King's 80th birthday celebration.
