Great British Blues
on 9 May 2014
For some reason I have listened to King King's second album first. I have only recently heard of this band and this was because they are part of the support for John Mayall's 80th anniversary tour later this year. This is a four piece blues outfit who have won a number of awards around the British blues scene. This offering is 51 minutes long and consists of 10 numbers primarily most of which are written by members of the band.
I would suggest that they are a quality blues band in the vein of Anstey Lister but a little more acoustic and not as raw. The album commences with a fast blues number titled 'More than I can take' this is followed by a more relaxed ' Taken what's mine' which features some guitar work of the sort of quality expected of a good blues band. The track 'Jealousy' showcases the vocal talents of Alan Nimmo.
King King are brave enough to cover a classic Free number 'Heavy Load' which they do very well and there is a little bit of Paul Rogers throughout this album. This is good stuff and I will have a listen to their first album TAKE MY HAND in the near future.
I could have done with some more information with this disc but you are directed to the web site. A good album and well worth listening to.
