John N has sent me more links than I could post in a lifetime, some of which I have no idea as to what they even are, and some of which are so phenominal (he's the source of the recent Yo La Tengo and Brian Jonestown Massacre onslaughts)... I love when people send me stuff, and this guy has been nothing if not generous with his shares.... anyway, I think this will appeal to some of you folks here, after all, who the fuck doesn't love some BB King?.... MY go-to blues man is Buddy Guy, but, hell, the recently deceased BB King is not a fucking joke either.
John N sends us an incredible 5-disc (!) box set of BB's singles, A sides AND B sides, covering the era of 1949-62 (62 was the year I was BORN, proof positive that music did not suddenly get "good" the day I was born, as so many of us take a natural human nature course into believing.
Anyway, this is a great set, checked it out today.......awesome, awesome collection, thanks so much to John N from Los Angeles (hell I won't even hold THAT against him, given the fab links he's sent me) for this.......it's simply TOO FUCKING GREAT and would likely cost you a hundred bucks or so should you attempt to purchase it.........we're providing it to ya for free, and you will FUCKING LOVE THIS ONE!
