Albert King Plays The Blues For You

During a concert in the early 1970’s Albert King performs his signature tune I’ll Play The Blues For You for a captivated audience of thousands.

All three of these blues phenoms have moved on and are sorely missed by music fans across the globe.

The 1970s saw King teamed with members of The Bar-Kays and The Movement (Isaac Hayes’s backing group), including bassist James Alexander and drummer Willie Hall adding strong funk elements to his music. With the addition of multiple rhythm guitarists, producers Allen Jones and Henry Bush created a wall of sound in contrast with the sparse, punchy records that King made with Booker T. & the MGs.

One of the three “Kings” of the blues, Albert was often mentioned in the same breath as B.B. King and Freddie King. – See more at:
