All Music Guide - Dan Forte
Atlantic's original vinyl edition of this was comprised of Albert's Stax singles -- a few from Born Under a Bad Sign, along with "Cold Feet," "I Love Lucy" two of King's patented monologues, and the beautiful "You're Gonna Need Me." Great stuff. Even greater, though, is the CD reissue, which includes those singles which didn't appear on any other LPs and all of Born Under a Bad Sign. Need I say more?

    Yes indeed!

    This is an excellent overview of Albert King’s beginning days with Stax Records and house band Booker T. & the MGs, along with The Memphis Horns. What this offers is the entire landmark Born Under a Bad Sign album which is considered by many to be the definitive urban Blues album. Atlantic packaged that album with some bonus material that is just as great. King was without a doubt the most prolific Blues guitarist of his generation, and his sound spawned more imitators than even B.B. King. The remastered Rhino CD The Very Best of Albert King is the place to go to get the full effect of Albert's Blues power. His guitar doesn't stand out here near as much, but this is really a showcase for not only King's soulful string bending, but for the MGs' superior ensemble playing. It took the greatest Soul band in the world to be the most perfect band any Blues singer could ask for. Multi-instrumentalist Booker T. Jones will dazzle the listener with the most impressive technically and stylistically Blues piano work I've ever heard. And with King's producer and drummer Al Jackson, Jr. leading the way, these are some of the greatest records ever made - whatever the genre'.

    Ten Stars

    The polished, old-school Stax-style R&B funk of Booker T and the MG's and the Memphis Horns meet the toughest blues guitarist/singer out there in a perfect match. This is guitar blues at the very highest level. Listen to Albert knock the back wall out with ''Personal Manager''-- this and Hendrix is where Stevie Ray took some of his main lessons, and that isn't a slam. Absolute classic, must-have blues album.
