Albert KING - New Orleans Heat 1978
This is a wonderful recording (1978). If you're the kind of person that sits up and notices when you hear real talent, then pay attention to this one. It is "pure" Albert King, in every sense of the word; the New Orleans studio musicians are so tight and so there for him, they let him shine. The bass was so good, I had to see who it was: George Porter Jr. Excellent funk to some arrangements and the horns are icing on the cake: tight, tight but so relaxed at the same time.
I don't know if you can get horns like that anywhere BUT New Orleans...
One of my very, very favorite albums...
