Customer Review

on 6 July 2012
If you are interested in electric blues guitar then this is a must, and not just because it features SRV but because SRV is with one of his idols, the late great Albert King.

As much as I love Stevie Ray, It's the tone and style of Albert King that mesmerises me. Once you have heard Alberts' distintive tone, you can then recognise his style and licks echoed through not just SRVs playing(He amps up Alberts style brilliantly on "Matchbox") but in the pantheon of Rock and Blues guitar players that followed. Everyone from Hendrix, Clapton et al soaked up kings influence and its not hard to understand why.

Albert King may not have reached the commercial heights that SRV did (posthumously), but that can't detract from his enormous contribution to the style of the electric blues guitar. I'm not talking "diddly diddly diddly plank spanking" here, but bending strings, making the guitar cry and sing.

Its a rare pleasure to be able to watch either of these two guitar greats play, so to see them play together and enjoy themselves so much in the process is a treat.
