The Complete RPM/Kent Recording Box
Revolutionary modern blues from the king of the blues, Mr Blues, who has never been unleashed as the days passed since he wandered with a stone as his pillow!
B.B., who has only been newly married for just over a year, says: "Now I want to go home and see my wife's face. But the recording session was so heated that no one even noticed when they stopped in the middle of a song. This real blues production scene, B.B. at the height of his enthusiasm, can only be heard on this box.

Two years in conception; a true celebration of P Vine's 40th anniversary project.
B.B. King, the king of the blues, who passed away on 14 May 2015. This truly unprecedented box set, fully supervised by its P Vine founder, Yasufumi Higurashi!

B.B. KING BOX

■An unprecedented box set, supervised by P Vine founder Yasufumi Higurashi, containing all the recordings from the RPM/Kent era, 1950-65, at the beginning and peak of B.B. King's career.
■B.B. King himself understood and cheered for P Vine's active introduction of his RPM/Kent work in the Japan/Asia area, with regular master record ownership; B.B. and P Vine had a direct artist contract, and if he had lived to see P Vine's 40 anniversary celebrations, it would have been a project box that he would have been supremely happy with. The album cover, which B.B. signed for P Vine before his death, is also included in the booklet.

B.B.KING Back of booklet.

■The CDs are based on the concept that Yasufumi Nigure has thoroughly re-examined the existing and unreleased material, and compiled each CD with a particular focus: all of B.B. King's SPs and singles for RPM and Kent, including alternate takes of those releases, which were later released on LP and CD, plus rare session scenes, 1965. Compiled on 17 CDs, including his last session with Kent in December 1965.
■For the first time, we will hear previously unknown B.B. works, tracked down for the first time on multi-tracks that have survived in existence for decades after they were recorded.
■The first time around 100 songs are presented, including 10 completely unreleased songs plus two separate takes and incomplete takes from the sessions.
■Many rare photographs owned by the late Ernest Withers, a photographer who had a close relationship with B.B., are shown for the first time in Japan. The booklet is the size of an LP record and is full of power.

B.B.KING Booklet 1.

■As it is dedicated to B.B. in the 1950s and early 1960s, it provides a translation of how popular he was as a star in the black community at the time, and what kind of personality he had, which is extracted from articles in black magazines and other sources.

B.B.KING Booklet 1.

■Bobby Rush contributed a tasteful piece of writing about his memories of B.B. We also conducted a survey 'When I first heard B.B. King'. We received responses from Otis Rush, veteran bluesmen and prominent Western blues researchers.
■In addition to Yasufumi Higurashi, general supervisor, and Akira Takachi, booklet supervisor, detailed commentaries by Keishi Suzuki, Hitoshi Koide, Akira Bunya, Mie Seo, Toshio Imazawa, Takashi Nagai-Hotoke, Shinya Akimoto and Mitsuyoshi Agatsuma are also worth reading.
■The LP contains 14 tracks from the many masterpieces and masterpieces, focusing on relatively unknown (and that's the beauty of it) hard blues, which do not overlap with the CD takes, so you can fully enjoy the greatness and magnitude of B.B. in analogue form.
