Blues smooth as velvet
on 18 July 2014
Another Big Al Stax classic beautifully remastered. Blues as smooth as velvet slightly reminiscent of BB Kings polished "There is always one more time".One thing you can always rely on with an Albert King cd is wonderful driving funky base lines and this cd is full of them. The whole cd is beautifully put together. Its blues but with all musicians bang on the nail. Blues for the upmarket lounges rather than the bars on the chittlin circuit. After all Big Al has paid his dues.
This cd includes four of my all time King favourites the smooth slinky "I'll play the blues for you", the deeply menacing "Breaking up somebody's home" , the hard driving "High cost of loving" and the funky "Dont burn down the bridge". And two of those reappear as bonus alternate takes. What's not to like!!
