Gatefold double LP

B.B. King's Deuces Wild, his duets album, appears on vinyl for the first time as a double LP gatefold edition. Featuring collaborations with D'Angelo, the Rolling Stones, Dr. John and many more.

Geffen and UME are also reissuing nine of B.B. King's early albums that haven't been available for decades. Recorded in the 1950s and 1960s, these albums include B.B. King Wails (1959) B.B. King Sings Spirituals (1960), The Great B.B. King (1960), King of the Blues (1960), My Kind of Blues (1961), More B.B. King (1961), Easy Listening Blues (1962), Blue in My Heart (1962) and B.B. King [aka The Soul of B.B. King] (1963).

"B.B. King, probably the most celebrated blues player, has come a long way from Itta Bena, Mississippi, and this album illustrates just how far. A series of guest shots by such artists as Van Morrison, Tracy Chapman, Eric Clapton, Mick Hucknall, Bonnie Raitt, Dr. John, Joe Cocker, Marty Stuart, the Rolling Stones, and Willie Nelson, Deuces Wild is far removed from the blues King played in the '40s and '50s. It's more like psychodrama, especially in the case of the Cocker track, 'Dangerous Mood.' Nobody here, celebrity notwithstanding, is just going through the motions. The album's crass concept is redeemed by, among others, drummers Steve Jordan, Jim Keltner, and Charlie Watts. Although it's an overblown international project with no affinity for the meaning of the blues, the players and their love for the music triumph. — Amazon.com
