Help with infobox[edit]

I have modified the infobox to include B.B. King's name in the artist's name section, but of course this is then repeated in the chronology for the preceding and following recordings. The original version of the infobox only showed Clapton as the artist, which is at best misleading (the cover shows King as top billing), was possibly the only stop-gap solution available. To use the excellent expression of another Wikipedian, I cannot solve the problem as I am template-challenged. Can someone sort it out please? Talking of templates, could someone stick on one that says something about toning down the PR style of the article? As it stands, it is not very encyclopedic, is it? Thanx. --Technopat 09:31, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I've fixed the infobox – what was missing was the "Chronology" field (see Template:Infobox Album). I've also switched the EC and BB chronologies as BB is billed first. --Bruce1ee 11:52, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Who's Taub?[edit]

Who's Taub? --MosheA 04:17, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Who's Tab[edit] "Hooker's recording career began in 1948 when his agent placed a demo tape, made by Hooker, with the Bihari brothers, owners of the Modern Records label. The company initially released an up-tempo number, "Boogie Chillen", which became Hooker's first hit single.[1] Though they were not songwriters, the Biharis often purchased or claimed co-authorship of songs that appeared on their labels, thus securing songwriting royalties for themselves, in addition to their streams of income.

Sometimes these songs were older tunes renamed (B.B.King's "Rock Me Baby"), anonymous jams ("B.B.'s Boogie") or songs by employees (bandleader Vince Weaver). The Biharis used a number of pseudonyms for songwriting credits: Jules was credited as Jules Taub; Joe as Joe Josea; and Sam as Sam Ling. One song by John Lee Hooker, "Down Child" is solely credited to "Taub", with Hooker receiving no credit for the song whatsoever. Another, "Turn Over a New Leaf" is credited to Hooker and "Ling"." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:30, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

The second paragraph sounds like advertising (or possibly a review) and is not encyclopedic in tone. -- Kyle Maxwell (talk) 18:49, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
