Exact repro of the 1981 reissue (remastered at Fantasy Studios), originally released on Stax in 1972. "I'll Play The Blues For You showcases all of the elements that make Albert King one of the most distinguished electric bluesmen ever. It's more than a blues album, more than a treasure trove of guitar licks. Originally released on Stax in 1972, it's a soul record, an r&b fingerpopper in the classic Stax tradition, featuring spirited backup by the elegantly funky Memphis horns and the hypnotically steady, soul-machine beat of the Bar-Kays (if you can keep your seat during 'Don't Burn Down The Bridge,' see a doctor). The lead guitar is mixed way out front, and the soloing on 'I'll Be Doggone' is hotter than a grease fire, some of Albert's most intense recorded guitar playing ever."
