5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Blues Guitar Album Ever?!, June 22, 2002
This review is from: Born Under a Bad Sign (Audio CD)
If you are reading this review, I'll have to assume you are new to blues and blues guitar in particular. If you weren't, you wouldn't need any convincing by me to pick this classic up right away. BB King may be called the King of the Blues, but Albert King is the player most wished they could sound like. He was Stevie Ray Vaughan's favorite player and the only man Hendrix said he was afraid to share a stage with. Live Wire, Blues Power may feature flashier long extended guitar solos, but this cd, more then any other, is the one I use to answer the question: who is Albert King? I just pop it in the deck and let the opening title track fill the room. Two or three tracks are usually all I need to get any newbie running out for their own copy. With guys like Booker T., Steve Cropper, Donald "Duck" Dunn, and the great Issac Hayes backing Albert up, this thing grooves from begining to end and every track is a gem. This could quite possibly be the single greatest and most important blues album ever recorded. It's so nice to see it available again. Do yourself a favor and make this your next blues guitar cd. While you're at it, pick up Live Wire, Blues Power and I'll Play the Blues for You. You may have just found a new favorite guitar player.
