This introduction contains Earl King's Ace sides in the '50s (2.3.4), a Rex side in '60 (5), a live tune (6), and Street Parade tunes featuring the Meters in the early '70s. The song title No.2 is printed as "Nobody Cares", however, this turned out to be "Little Girl" really on this CD. The liner notes says about Earl's history including the interviews with Earl, and says little about the precise credit of his songs. Earl was not so often in the studio and made records sporadically, but I think he should gain more appreciations. This introduction minimally did his duty of presenting us his fine and a little high bluesy voice and his spellbound guitar largely influenced by Guitar Slim and rhythmic or funky backings of New Orleans.

"An Introduction To Earl King" is a very nice collection of songs from the legendary New Orleans blues/R&B singer famous for recording the often-covered "Let The Good Times Roll".

That song, plus other gems such as "Nobody Cares," "Up On The Hill," "This Is What I Call Living," and other tunes demonstrate his rich, powerful voice, and strong but sometimes subtle guitar work.

Another bluesman who might otherwise be overlooked, this record will help to make sure that Earl King gets his due.

I just got this from Amazon second party sellers, and I'm glad the label deleted this, because the sound is quite horrible. Distorted, dubbed from disc, mono source playing in stereo with stereophonic surface noise. Garbled and quite horrible.

Earl King was one of the better New Orleans singers of the era, but this "introduction" is musically great, but sonicallly below bootleg quality.
