5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable 10 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'd imagine a lot of people share my experience - I bought Born Under a Bad Sign and then spent a lot more money chasing another AK album that was even half as good. I thought I'd found it with The Lost Session, but that hasn't stood the test of time.

But this is really terrific. Albert has another great band behind him, just like with Booker T, and possibly the best guitar tone he ever had. This just absolutely floats into your soul. And the extra tracks are better than some of the stuff on the original album. For once he gets the right blend of funk, soul, and blues.

I have about 10 AK CDs now, and this is one of the very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars "...Come On Over To The Place Where I Work..." 9 July 2012
By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Released Monday 4 June 2012 in the UK (22 May 2012 in the USA) - Concord Music Group, Inc 0888072337169 is release number seven in the 2011/2012 "STAX REMASTERS" CD Series and breaks down as follows (60:59 minutes):

Tracks 1 to 8 are the album "I'll Play The Blues For You" - released October 1972 in the USA on Stax Records STS-3009 and January 1973 in the UK on Stax Records 2325 089

Tracks 9 to 12 are PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BONUS TRACKS:
Track 9 is "I'll Play The Blues For You (Alternate Version)" (8:44 minutes)
Track 10 is "Don't Burn Down The Bridge ('Cause You Might Wanna Come Back Across) (Alternate Version)" (5:13 minutes)
Track 11 is "I Need A Love" (4:29 minutes) [Album Outtake]
Track 12 is "Albert's Stomp" (2:18 minutes) [Album Outtake - Instrumental]

The new 12-page booklet has very knowledgeable and affectionate liner notes by BILL DAHL who did the exceptional liner notes on Bear Family's 1961-1970 "Sweet Soul Music" CDs (10 volumes) and their 1945-1960 "Blowing The Fuse" series on R'n'B music (16 volumes). I've reviewed nearly all of them. You also get the original artwork on the front and rear of the booklet, musician and session details and the LP's original liner notes etc. But once again the big news is the NEWLY REMASTERED SOUND...

I've reviewed all the other titles in the "Stax Remasters" series (see list below) and duly raved about the fabulous sound quality on them - especially after years of lacklustre reissues in jewel cases and repro digipaks. Well this is the same. 24-bit remastered from the first generation tapes at JOE TARANTINO Mastering in Berkeley, California - the audio quality is superbly warm - especially the drum and bass (so sweet).

I already knew of this album but wanted it on my iPod player. If you don't know Albert's music this is a good place to start.
