Albert King's electrifying Stax Records debut, Born Under a Bad Sign features an all-star line-up of musicians (including Booker T & the M.G.'s and members of The Memphis Horns) and finds King performing the iconic, original recording of "Born Under a Bad Sign", plus classics like "Laundromat Blues", "Oh Pretty Woman" and "Crosscut Saw".

Often referred to as one of the "Kings of the Blues", alongside Freddie King and B.B. King (no relation), Albert King (1923–1992) was one of the most influential blues artists in history, revered for his deft artistry on the electric guitar (most famously on a Gibson Flying V) and his deep, husky vocals. Combining an urgent Delta blues style with contemporary soul rhythms, King redefined the genre for the modern era.

Heavyweight audiophile vinyl produced by Craft Recordings in 2023. Remastered from the original stereo tapes by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl.
