Albert King was one of three Kings (along with B.B. King and Freddie King) who helped to define the blues and pronounce its grip on generations of young musicians. King was also a pioneer in merging blues with the hard-driving funk of his Stax label-mates The Bar-Kays and with the sound of The Isaac Hayes Movement. The Memphis sound served King well and helped him stay ahead of the game, entertaining rock and soul audiences alike at such venues as the Montreux Jazz Festival and The Fillmore. Amid the upsurge in King's revisited repertoire stands his February 1974 appearance at the Purple Carriage House in Illinois. King performed with a tight, emotional hold on "Lucy," his beloved Flying V guitar, before an admiring and intimate crowd fortunate enough to bear witness to another of King's mesmerizing performances. Klondike's homage to this phenomenal blues legend is represented in this beautifully packaged edition of the complete WXRT-FM broadcast of this February 1974 performance; a celebration the complex depth of a true musical giant. Digitally remastered; includes background liner notes.
