 Warner Williams and Jay Summerour have been playing music together under the name of Little Bit A Blues for nearly 30 years. During their tenure together, they have recorded several albums, including one under the Smithsonian Folkways label. Eric Selby joined up with Warner and Jay several years ago, completing the current trio heard on this new and exciting release. Little Bit A Blues have played concert venues and blues festivals across the country?too many to name.

Icons in the genre of piedmont-style, acoustic blues, Little Bit A Blues has become a fan favorite nationwide. Often shying away from the media spotlight, they have continued their musical journey together while gaining a large and loyal following. Individually and as a group, they have received numerous awards and recognitions in honor of their commitment to delivering real-deal, acoustic blues. Just in 2012 alone, Eric Selby was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, Jay Summerour received a WAMMIE Lifetime Achievement Award and 83-year-old Warner Williams was inducted by the National Endowment of the Arts as a Lifetime Heritage Fellow for his contribution to American music.

From the coaxing of Bill Wax of B.B. King’s Bluesville, Little Bit A Blues got together and completed a live recording at SiriusXM Studios in the Fall of 2012. This amazing recording session has become the latest release from Soul Stew Records, 'The Best of Little Bit a Blues Live B.B. King's'.

This new release was recorded in a similar manner to how they perform their concerts: live, no musical edits and no overdubs. Whether it’s the beat-tapping of Warner’s boot or a much needed cough in between verses to belt out the blues, on this CD, you hear it all in its raw and honest form. Just like the real-deal acoustic blues they deliver.
