    There's no shortage of albums in this world entitled either THE BEST OF B.B. KING or some variation thereof. Fortunately, the inestimably influential blues guitarist has a colossal and consistently impressive discography that warrants a couple of dozen best-of compilations.
    At 10 tracks, EMI's 2006 collection is a basic primer on King, featuring a full roster of the legendary performer's straightforward, soulful vocals and smooth, perfectly phrased fret work. There's no "The Thrill Is Gone" or "Caldonia" here, but King's take on "Everyday (I Have the Blues)" and the smooth swing of "Why I Sing the Blues" more than compensate. The lack of liner notes and recording information will frustrate some listeners, but it won't detract from the excellent music on offer.
