Together for the First Time... Live is a 1974 blues album by singer Bobby Bland and guitar virtuoso B. B. King. The duo would later work together again on Bobby Bland and B. B. King Together Again...Live. Bland and King toured together extensively in the 1970s and 1980s, which did much to keep their careers alive during a period of otherwise popular decline for the blues genre.
