This review is from: I Wanna Get Funky (Audio CD)
Indeed, Albert King does get funky.....and it is fantastic. This album sounds like what one would get if Albert King made an album with Booker T. and the MG's, plus a funky horn section. Some of it sounds very Isaac Hayes-ish, ala "Shaft". In this case Albert teams up with the Bar-Kays. The result is some truly soulful funk, with Albert's rough voice and fiery guitar licks. Is is blues? Is it funk? Who cares? It's just great music. A must have for Albert King fans and fans of "old school" soul and funk. And the cover with Albert smoking his pipe while playing a Stratocaster left-handed...ala Hendrix.....is simple badass!!!!!
