Audio Fidelity To Release B.B. King & Eric Clapton “Riding With The King” On Limited Edition Numbered Hybrid SACD

Two Masters Produce a Contemporary Blues

In honor of the recent
passing of blues guitar legend B.B. King, Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity
will be releasing B.B. King & Eric Clapton “Riding With The King” on Limited
Hybrid SACD. This SACD should satisfy fans of King, Clapton and blues purists
alike. “Riding With The King” was Eric Clapton’s and B.B. King’s first
collaborative recording and it went on to win the 2000 Grammy Award for Best
Traditional Blues Album. The album reached #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues

They first performed together in 1967 when
Clapton was 22 and a member of Cream. Clapton looked up to King and had always
wanted to make an album with him. At the time of recording Clapton was 55 and
King 74. Clapton arranged the session using many of his
regular musicians, picked the songs, and co-produced with his partner Simon
Climie. While this would appear to be a Clapton album recorded with King,
Clapton gave King center-stage.

The set list includes lots of
vintage King specialties, “Ten Long Years,” “Three O’Clock Blues,” “Days of
Old,” “When My Heart Beats Like a Hammer,” as well as standards like “Hold On
I’m Coming” and “Come Rain or Come Shine,” with some specially written and
appropriate new material. King takes Clapton deeper into blues territory than he
has ever gone alone and these two artists play the blues with conviction. There
may never be another album that links the Delta Blues to modern rock with such
style, grace, enthusiasm, and honesty.
