With his 83rd birthday fast approaching, blues legend B.B. King has just scored the highest-debuting solo album of his career. "One Kind Favor" debuted at No. 37 on the Billboard 200 this week. It also ranks as his highest-charting solo set since "Live in Cook County Jail" traveled to No. 25 in 1971. "Favor" is King's 33rd chart entry. Although he has been recording since 1949, he didn't appear on the Billboard album chart until 1968, when "Lucille" became his first chart entry. King's highest-ranked album is "Riding With The King," his collaboration with Eric Clapton, which peaked at No. 3 in 2000. On Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart, "One Kind Favor" bows at No. 1, becoming King's sixth set to debut in pole position and his eighth to reach the top slot. King was most recently No. 1 on this list with "Live" in March. King, who still tours regularly, turns 83 on September 16. Thanks for the report to Reuters.
