In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Eric Clapton and B.B. King's Grammy Award-winning Riding With The King collection has been reissued today (June 26th). The set is now available as an expanded, limited-edition double-LP pressed on blue vinyl, remastered by Bob Ludwig. Two additional previously unreleased tracks have been added to the album: The blues standard “Rollin' And Tumblin'” and a cover of Willie Dixon‘s “Let Me Love You Baby.”
The album features five B.B. King originals, plus a selection of covers from writers as diverse as Isaac Hayes & David Porter's — “Hold On I’m Coming,” Johnny Mercer's “Come Rain Or Come Shine,” and “Big” Bill Broonzy's “Key To The Highway.” John Hiatt wrote the album’s title track.
Eric Clapton & B.B. King's Riding With The King was released on June 13th, 2000. The set, which hit Number One on Billboard's Top Blues Albums, topped out at Number Three on the Billboard 200 list. The set went on to snag the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album.
