Throughout the 1990s as well as the 1980s, 1970s and 1960s, there has been only one King of the blues — Riley B. King, affectionately known as B.B. King. Since B.B. started recording in the late 1940s, he has released more than 50 albums many of them considered blues classics, like 1965's definitive live blues album Live at The Regal, and 1976's collaboration with Bobby "Blue" Bland, Together For The First Time.
