Over his towering career, B.B. King developed one of the world's most identifiable guitar styles. He borrowed from Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker and others, integrating his precise and complex vocal-like string bends and his left hand vibrato, both of which have become indispensable components of rock guitarist's vocabulary. His economy, his every-note-counts phrasing, has been a model for thousands of players, from Eric Clapton and George Harrison to Jeff Beck. B.B. has mixed traditional blues, jazz, swing, mainstream pop and jump into a unique sound. In B.B.'s words, "When I sing, I play in my mind; the minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing Lucille." 1969 commercial breakthrough Completely Well is anchored by the all-time classic "The Thrill Is Gone" which struck paydirt on both the R&B/soul and pop charts plus six stellar co-written originals. Gatefold 180g vinyl LP.
