<span style="font-size:1.17em"><span style="color:orangered">According to the liner notes, Al King's story is that he was burned by the record biz as a young man and wanted nothing else to do with it after that. For many years, he played in neighborhood clubs in Oakland, CA .
There are no guitar fireworks, shrieks, or wails here. The tone is slow, warm, and relaxed. King has a mellow, sly and expressive voice and his lyrics are direct and often funny. He and his band work together like they'd known each other for decades (which likely they had). It's just delightful music in every way. Al King died shortly after the record was made.... </span></span>
