Albert's unusual fingering allowed him to develop a devastating technique in which searing sustained blue notes were produced by bending single strings and sustaining the note using an undercurrent of feedback from his amplifier speakers.
These sustained "blue" notes were usually incorporated into long cascading single string runs to great effect. Albert's recordings for Bobbin, commencing in , show his style developing with his growing confidence and experience. In , Albert was signed direct to King Records via his Bobbin deal and although he only cut one session at King, the company acquired the entire Bobbin back catalogue of masters.
Now for the first time all of Albert King's historic Bobbin recordings are being made available on one CD, a total of 22 tracks including alternate takes. By Ted Carroll.

Happy with order. One person found this helpful. The cd came as promised. In the packaging it was displayed in the description. That may not seem like a big deal, but I've gotten bootlegs from people when they pictured an authorized cd. The cd plays like promised and that's all I can say.
Honest and dependable seller. Thank you. This was Albert King's first official album and, finally, the material therein - usually splattered across various slapdash bargain collections - is restored to context.
