Continuing to take advantage of John N's generosity, great BB King

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.

This set was released in 2015 in honor of the passing of the great Mr. King, who, imo, along with Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Leadbelly, and a handful of others had FAR more influence on a lot of the rock n roll that I love, than, say, someone like Elvis Presley or Chuck Berry, for example, who get so much credit, relative, at least, to the blues masters I've listed.

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'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!
