Perhaps my favorite of all Blues Musicians, Mr. Albert King.  In addition to his amazing voice, the guy is a tremendous guitar player.  I am thinking my favorite guitar player of all time. That poor guitar, it almost feels at time the guitar itself is crying out for help.   Known as the Velvet Bulldozer, the man was like 6’5 250 when he was dieting.  A force to reckon with for sure. If you have to listen to one album, check out his live album in Chicago 1978.  Oh my.
