Albert King - Years Gone By (1969)

Albert King was a highly influential American blues guitarist and singer.

1968 saw Albert King release a couple of successful singles on Stax Records - "Cold Feet" got to #20 on the R&B chart, and "(I Love) Lucy", a tribute to his guitar, got to #46. They weren't featured on the any studio albums except the 1969 compilation King Of The Blues Guitar (which was essentially the Born Under A Bad Sign album with a few songs removed to make way for the singles and some b-sides).
His second full studio album on Stax was Years Gone By, also released in 1969, and again recorded with backing from Booker T & The MGs, and produced by drummer Al Jackson Jr. Another collection of excellent electric blues with the clean production and tight, funky arrangements typical of the Stax studios.
