Image of Albert King


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 ...

This cd is a collection of outtakes, alternate versions, and various rare tracks from King's stretch at Stax records. It says a lot about the quality of King's recordings that these leftover tracks are better than most bluesmen's greatest hits! Absolutely no one could bend strings like Albert King, and Stax always provided him with a first-rate backing band. Usually outtakes albums like this are only recommended for fans who already own the other releases, but I would totally recommend "Hard Bargain" for ANYONE interested in hearing some great blues.

This is my third Albert King CD, and I'm very happy with every one of them. I like his guitar styling.

I would recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys Memphis Blues.

This is supposed to be a 75 weord review, but what else is there to say? I'm happy I got it.
