B.B. KING BOX
■The Founder of P-Vine Records, Yasufumi Higurashi supervised this unprecedented boxset which include his recordings from 1950 ? 65 RPM / KENT period, B.B. King’s earliest yet finest period of his career.

■B.B. King himself acknowledged and cheered that P-Vine Record controlled the master rights and introduced his RPM/KENT period recordings in Japan / Asia. The artist and the record label even had an artist agreement so if he was still alive today he’d have been more than happier about this project. On the booklet there’s his signature to P-Vine on his album cover.
B.B.KING ブックレット裏

■Each CD has own special concept elaborated by Higurashi’s thorough review on existing and unreleased tracks. Total 17 CDs include all SP / Singles that B.B. Kings recorded for RPM/KENT, its outtakes, songs that were released later as LP or CD, rare session scenes, and his final recording session for KENT in December, 1965.

■Enjoy the unheard B.B.’s tunes that are tracked down from remained multi tracks that are revived after decades for the first time in the world.

■There are total about 100 songs premiered here with 10 completely unreleased songs, its 2 alternate takes, and the incomplete takes.

■Enjoy the LP record size booklet with impressive big pictures belonging to the photographer, Ernest Withers who deepened exchange with B.B. Have you seen him standing cool like that?

■The translated text on the booklet specializes in the artist from 50s to 60s, who he was and how he was supported in the society of black people, with excerpts of black people’s magazines.
B.B.KING ブックレット2

■Bobby Rush shares his memory with B.B. with his heartfelt text and questionnaire “When I first heard B.B. King” was taken place and many veteran blues men and blues experts including Otis Rush gave their answers.

■Enjoy B.B.’s grandeur on the LP that include 14 relatively unknown (which is the point!) hard blues songs from his many masterpieces and classics. These songs are not compiled in CDs.
B.B. KING LP jacket

■The music is accompanied by the translated version of “The Arrival of B.B. King” (1980), the world’s first book on B.B. King, written by Charles Sawyer (translation by Kazumi Someya).
B.B.KING BOX 中身

■His soul squeezing guitars, sometimes gently embracing, fierce and blues-exploding sublime vocals at the other times, or sophisticated band ensemble...this boxset exhaustively reveals his discovery and establishment of his style of modern blues that left enormous influence on following blues and rock music.

Indeed there might be similar works that were released in the past.
But this is not any of the kind with its incomparable spirit and ambition.
This is the ultimate project for all seekers of B.B. King!
