(hennemusic) Eric Clapton and B.B. King are streaming a previously-unreleased track, "Let Me Love You'", from the newly-available expanded 20th anniversary reissue of their 2000 album, "Riding With The King."

The Willie Dixon tune is one of two bonus songs featured on the package - alongside "Rollin' And Tumblin'" - that were recorded during the original sessions; the tracks were produced and mixed especially for this release by Simon Climie, who produced the original album with Clapton.

The original album features four B.B. King originals, plus a selection of covers from writers as diverse as Isaac Hayes & David Porter ("Hold On I'm Coming"), Johnny Mercer & Harold Arlen ("Come Rain Or Come Shine"), William Broonzy & Charles Seger ("Key To The Highway"), and John Hiatt, who wrote and originally recorded the album's title track.

The collaboration was a Top 5 US record upon its original release, winning the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album on its way to sales of more than 2 million copies in the country.

The 14-track collection is now available in all formats including a 180-gram black double vinyl package. Stream the song here.
