1970 was a very successful year for Riley B. King as he was riding all the sales charts with newfound crossover fame, thanks to his many years of touring, many television appearances, and many consistently great recordings, like his 1970 smash Indianola Mississippi Seeds.
This particular masterwork was a personal favorite of B.B. King's, and you can easily hear why from the moaning blues opener "Nobody Loves Me but My Mother" until the Side 2 ending notes of the star-studded hit track "Hummingbird."
One of the biggest soul and rock tracks of his career, "Chains and Things", brought a massive new and younger hip audience to the artist, and would propel his career to the top for the next four decades.
The lineup of musicians is second to none with his friends like Carole King, Leon Russell, Joe Walsh (just to name a few) making this all-star session one of the greatest of its time.
More great works like "You're Still My Woman," "King's Special," "Go Underground," and "Ask Me No Questions" would find their way onto early FM underground rock radio stations, as the guitar hero's music would find companionship on radio with folks like Eric Clapton, John Mayall, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter and Canned Heat.
