Description: 
Rebounding slightly from the nadir of Albert, Albert King delivered Albert King, a record that at least sticks to the tough, soul-inflected blues that made his reputation. Granted, the sound of the album is entirely too polished, but there is genuine grit in the performances and some strong songs, such as "You Upset Me Baby" and "Good Time Charlie", on the record. That may be enough for some hardcore fans to give a listen, but they should be forewarned that even those inspired moments aren't enough to make King Albert a worthwhile release.

“Originally Titled King Does The King's Thing, Here's Albert King Adding His Own Touch To A Batch Of Elvis Presley Tunes. Because King's Style Is So Irreducible, The Concept Actually Works, As He Fills This Album With His Traditional, High-Voltage Guitar Work And Strong Vocals. That Isn't Surprising, Since Four Of The Nine Tunes On Here Originally Started As R&B Hits Covered By Presley, Including An Instrumental Version Of Smiley Lewis' "One Night". No Matter What The Original Sources May Be, Though, This Is A Strong Showing In King's Catalog". Cub Koda, All Music Guide.

Musicians : Albert King (lead guitar, vocals), Steve Cropper (rhythm guitar), Booker T. Jones (organ, piano), Isaac Hayes (piano), Donald ‘’Duck’’ Dunn (bass guitar), Wayne Jackson (trumpet), Andrew Love (tenor saxophone), Joe Arnold (baritone saxophone, flute), Al Jackson Jr. (drums). It took more than four decades of patient hard work until a discriminating congregation could proclaim Albert King as one of the three kings of the electric blues, alongside B. B. King and Freddie King. Albert had a tough but highly motivated beginning, playing blues on a guitar he had made himself. Later he bought a really good instrument, then came a couple of promising songs, and a series of successful singles made under a contract with Stax Records in Memphis. Finally, late in life, Albert landed on the sunny side with "Born Under A Bad Sign". The album became one of the most influential recordings in the history of the blues. King's music was appreciated by white people too, which smoothed his path out of small clubs and on to big live events. Right from the title song, he travels along familiar tracks in the blues world, occasionally making a detour to hectic, soulful realms ("Crosscut Saw") and letting himself be carried away by strident winds ("Kansas City"). Over and over again, the musicians surprise one with ever new sound colourings, as in the hum and buzz of "Oh, Pretty Woman", the brusque admonitory "Down Don't Bother Me", or the swinging fiddling of "The Hunter". This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the master tapes through to the cutting head. All royalties and mechanical rights have been paid. Recording : March 1966 - June 1967 at Stax Studios, Memphis (TN) Production : Jim Stewart

Description: 
It's not as if Albert King hadn't tasted success in his first decade and a half as a performer, but his late -'60s / early -'70s recordings for Stax did win him a substantially larger audience. During those years, the label began earning significant clout amongst rock fans through events like Otis Redding’s appearance at the Monterey International Pop Festival and a seemingly endless string of classic singles. When King signed to the label in 1966, he was immediately paired with the Stax session team Booker T. & the MG's. The results were impressive: "Crosscut Saw", "Laundromat Blues", and the singles collection Born Under A Bad Sign were all hits. Though 1972's I’ll Play The Blues For You followed a slightly different formula, the combination of King, members of the legendary Bar-Kays, The Isaac Hayes Movement, and the sparkling Memphis Horns was hardly a risky endeavor. The result was a trim, funk-infused blues sound that provided ample space for King’s oft-imitated guitar playing. King has always been more impressive as a soloist than a singer, and some of his vocal performances on I’ll Play The Blues For You lack the intensity one might hope for. As usual, he more than compensates with a series of exquisite six-string workouts. The title track and "Breaking Up Somebody's Home" both stretch past seven minutes, while "I'll Be Doggone" and "Don't Burn Down the Bridge" (where King coaxes a crowd to "take it to the bridge", James Brown style) break the five-minute barrier. Riding strutting lines by bassist Ja mes Alexander, King runs the gamut from tough, muscular playing to impassioned cries on his instrument, making I’ll Play The Blues For You one of a handful of his great Stax sets.

1971's Lovejoy was Albert King's most fully realized attempt to bridge the divide between blues and rock. Although recorded a long way from King's home in Lovejoy, Ill., the singer and guitarist delivered blistering renditions of numbers like the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women", Taj Mahal's "She Caught The Katy And Left Me A Mule To Ride", and producer Don Nix's "Going Back to Luka".
