In honor of his 80th birthday B.B. King released a new album of duets last week, titled “80.” For the new album, King got together with some of music’s biggest stars, including Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Roger Daltrey, Elton John and more. The songs recorded for “80” range from well-loved standards like “The Thrill is Gone” to lesser known tunes, such as “Hummingbird.”
B.B. King also paired with Van Morrison and Eric Clapton on the album “Deuces Wild”, which came out in 1997. That album featured B.B teaming up with artists representing a variety of music genres, including Bonnie Rait, the Rolling Stones and rapper Heavy D (that song is, uh… interesting). The song “If You Love Me,” written and sung by Van Morrison is a treat, and I always enjoy B.B. and Bonnie Rait’s rendition of “Baby I Love You.”
But my favorite by far of B.B. King’s duets albums is the 1993 album “Blues Summit,” where B.B. was joined by blues and jazz stars to sing blues classics. Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Etta James and Koko Taylor are some of the greats featured on “Blues Summit.” I crack up listening to Ruth Brown and B.B. tease one another in the song “You’re the Boss,” and delight in the incredible guitar playing in B.B.’s duet with Albert Collins, “Call it Stormy Monday.” Finally, the tune “We’re Gonna Make It,” B.B.’s duet with Irma Thomas, is both sweet and cheerful. But I’m a little biased towards that one – it was the song my husband and I danced to at our wedding.
Simple Steps To Help You Better Understand Hobbies
Hobbies can be a great way to make good use of free time. Is there a hobby you especially enjoy? If you don’t, this article will give you ideas on a new hobby. If you’ve already found one, these tips still can help you out.
One hobby many people love is reading. A book can take you away from reality. Additionally, it is pretty easy to find a quiet spot to read. There are a lot of different genres as well, so you can easily find a book to enjoy.
Be sure to charge a fair price when you make the decision to offer the products of your hobby for sale. You have to charge enough to profit. You need to allow for your production time and material costs before you add on the profit margin.
For relaxation, nothing beats the hobby of fishing. Find a good spot to fish and grab some fishing gear. Then you need to make sure you’re allowed to fish in certain areas or if you need a permit. When you begin fishing, you’ll know it helps you escape from a hectic day.
Folks interested in converting a hobby to a business should come up with a catch name. Whatever name you select will be the start of your own brand. Keep in mind your name should not only be unique, but it should be memorable and easy to relate to your products.
Talk to others who share your interests. Not everyone will have an interest in the same things you do. If you discover that your loved ones do not share your same hobby interests, go out and talk to new people. Join a club or a forum online to discuss your hobby with your peers.
