Biography

Albert King is truly a "King of the Blues," although he doesn't hold that title (B.B. does). Along with B.B. and Freddie King, Albert King is one of the major influences on blues and rock guitar players. Without him, modern guitar music would not sound as it does -- his style has influenced both black and white blues players from Otis Rush and Robert Cray to Eric Clapton and ...

4.0 out of 5 stars I guess that's alright Mama 3 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
Good points:
One Night With You - great instrumental
Blue Suede Shoes - nothing like the Elvis version. Slower, bluesier, funkier.
Love Me Tender - as you'd expect, this brings out the best in Albert's soulful voice.

Not so good:
The rest of the tracks. Let me elaborate...

In was hoping to hear tracks that sound like
<Albert sings a line> <Guitar responds>
<Albert sings a line> <Guitar responds>
<Albert sings a line> <Guitar responds>
<Guitar solo that's a logical continuation of the earlier guitar responses>
You know the sort of thing?

Instead, too many tracks sounded like
<Albert sings a line> <Horns respond>
<Albert sings a line> <Horns respond>
<Albert sings a line> <Horns respond>
<Long and not especially relevant guitar solo>

Overall, though, in this day of MP3s and playlists, an album with three fantastic tracks and six tracks of filler is worth four stars.
