    Two guitar legends - Eric Clapton and B.B. King - first performed together in NYC in 1967.

The resulting album Riding with the King would be released in June 2000 and go onto sell over 2 million copies in the U.S. and win the 2000 Grammy Award © for Best Traditional Blues Album.

     

    To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this classic album, two additional previously unreleased tracks have been added: The blues standard “Rollin’ and Tumblin’” and B.B. King’s “Let Me Love You.” Both tracks were recorded during the original sessions and were produced and mixed especially for this release by Simon Climie, who produced the original album with Clapton. The original tapes have been remastered by Bob Ludwig for release on June 26th via Reprise Records.
