One of the founding fathers electric blues (as well as Memphis soul), and a primary inspiration for many rock guitar players, Albert King was a giant among bluesmen, and not only for his immense talents on the guitar, but also for his unique voice. In many ways, Albert´s own achievements outshine those of his acolytes. After all he did it first.

“A study in pinched, plucked passion, the lead guitar intro to ‘Don’t Throw Your Love on Me So Strong’ makes it clear from the start that Albert King ain’t about to do things in a small way. This is the lowdown slow blues at its finest, and the guitar-and-vocal interplay is exquisite.”– Guitar Blues Magazine (regarding The Big Blues LP)
