    Help Out a B. B. King Fan
    A while back I downloaded a four disc B. B. King compilation called "80 Songs" from the iTunes Music Store. Somehow the track information has gotten scrambled such that I have six or seven tracks listed as Track 1,

    Apparently this set is no longer in the Music Store for me to pull the track info. Could someone with this collection please post the track listing for each of the four discs? Google has been little or no help.

    Sounds like an iTunes only compilation for his 80th birthday a few years ago.

    Have an iDevice that doesn't have that album synced but have it available in the cloud?

    That sounds like the right collection. Unfortunately I don't have it synched to the cloud. I have a backup of the library but the information is probably screwy in that as well. I've had a few problems with the library lately.

    The first time I downloaded that set the track information was screwed up from the jump. I only noticed because several songs had incorrect titles. Shortly after that they posted correct information but the collection no longer seems to be available through ITMS.

    I have a hard copy on DVD of part of the library. It was made a few years ago. Perhaps the information is there.

    I am going to check into this. If I find anything I will let you know. I am a big fan of BB King.

    BB King 80 still shows up for sale here in the ITunes store. You say yours is 4 CD's? This says BB King 80 and it's 13 songs. Is yours a different item? The 80 here is celebrating his 80th Birthday. What is the exact title of your set?

    Thanks. I knew there was a reason I liked you. I'm going to look through the old backup I have on DVD tomorrow to see if the info is there.

    I have also noticed recently that if I attempt to re-download the "Chronicles" box set from the iTunes Store there are two or three songs that consistently don't download. iTunes complains with a network error of some sort.

    That's a different collection of a dozen or so songs entitled "80". This causes some confusion because the collection I have with messed up info is entitled "80 Songs". Hence the confusion. See attached artwork

    Very interesting. What was BB King Chronicles you mentioned? Found it on Amazon but it's a Box set of CD's.

    Chronicles seems to be these 3 in one set.

    Here's the iTunes Preview link to my "Chronicles" set. It looks like it's the same set that you found on Amazon.

    While going through the iTunes listings I discovered some of his work I had not seen in the store before.

    I assume you mean the 80 Songs collection I am looking for info on? Yeah it seems to be. Didn't realize it at the time. I did find the track list but as you can see they out all track 1's together, then track 2's etc. I assume the first track 1 is from disc1, the second from disc 2 etc. That doesn't match with the way iTunes seems to have had it but I may just go with that.

    Yes that one. That is strange. What I used to do way back in iTunes is go in manually under Info for each track and change the info to my liking.

    I think that is what I'l do. This isn't one of those concept albums where track order is important.

    I thought I was going to have to do that when I first downloaded this collection. The titles of several tracks were wrong. Quite confusing. The Apple fanboy in me kept saying "Surely they didn't mess up something as basic as track titles". The B. B King fan in me kept saying "That's not the right title". I eventually re-downloaded the tracks when they fixed the error.

    I wonder why they dropped it from the store. Oh well.

    That's happened with a few other artists that I have in my collection. There was a collection of folk music produced by Vanguard that was in the store at one time. It included artists such as Woody Guthrie and Cisco Huston.

    That collection has also disappeared for whatever reason. Funny thing is last time I checked two or three songs were still there but the rest of the album is gone.
