Fashioned as a vintage King LP from the era and containing a killer line-up of the biggest talents the stable of labels offered, this is the historic various artists collection is something that should have been issued back in 1962. King was central to the underlying creative flow in R&B during the era, and the recordings here show the depth of style and synergy that the label routinely captured on vinyl.
From the proto-funk groove of Hooker’s “Stomp Boogie” (under the pseudonym Texas Slim) to two cuts of Baker magic captured in Paris over a decade later, and including key cuts from Freddy King, Albert King, Johnny “Guitar” Watson and many others in between, this collection showcases a variety of instruments, tones and techniques.
