George Jones and B.B. King were probably two of the most influential musicians during their career. So, why not team up and make a musical masterpiece?! The two recorded a remake of the classic song "Patches."
Originally recorded by the soul band "Chairmen of the Board" in 1970, George and B.B. provide their own touch to the 1971 Grammy Award-winning song. Many people have covered this song, but no one has done it quite like George Jones and B.B. King! They recorded the song in 1994 for an album titled "Rhythm, Country, and Blues."
The album features duets between country and R&B artists singing classic songs. The album debuted at #1 on Top Country Albums and #15 on Top R&B?Hip-Hop Albums. It features duets between artists from Gladys Knight, to Conway Twitty, to Natalie Cole, to Reba McEntire and many more! Their version of "Patches" features a soulful guitar solo along with gritty vocals from B.B. King and a soulful country approach from George Jones.
King passed away May 14, 2015 at age 89 and Jones passed away in 2013 and age of 81. Take a look at the extraordinary collaboration of these two music legends. We guarantee it will have you swaying back and forth with the beat! Enjoy!
