Abbey Road mastering engineer Christian Wright talks through the process behind creating the 2015 vinyl release of ‘Ladies & Gentlemen… Mr B.B. King’.

B.B. King was one of America’s musical treasures whose stature grew to an unassailable, international level. His warm, downhome vocal style, his distinctive “talking” blues guitar playing, and his songs that sing of love’s joys and hardships – “Sweet Sixteen”, “How Blue Can You Get?”, “The Thrill Is Gone” and countless others – are all indelibly imprinted elements in the modern musical heritage.

Universal Music Group celebrates the life and work of the great man by bringing a 2LP retrospective which features a selection of the best tracks from the already available 10 CD and 4CD sets.

Released on 7th November
