• Albert KING - On My Merry Way – Singles As & Bs – The Earliest Sessions of the Guitar 1954-1962

Albert King doesn't require much of an introduction, he was one of the 'Three Kings of the Blues' and arguably next to B.B. he was perhaps the most popular of the many genuine blues guitarists to have been adopted by the rock world during the mid-1960s.

Albert began playing in the late '40s and made his first recordings in 1953 and it is these early sessions that are the focus of this outstanding collection from Jasmine. Includes tracks 'Blues At Sunrise' his fine version of Tampa Red's 'Little Boy Blue' and his hit song 'Don't Throw Your Love On Me So Strong' plus many other superb tracks.

Albert King influenced many artists including Mick Taylor, Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Stevie Ray Vaughan. This then is Albert King's first tentative steps towards global popularity compiled in chronological order and with fully detailed liner notes.
