ALBERT KING - C.O.D


It's somewhat unbelievable to think that by the time Albert King signed to Stax records(and achieved his greatest success) in '66 he had been recording for a dozen years!

This single was from King's final small label phase, and honestly they didn't get much tinier than Coun-tree records out of East St Louis. It's surprising in a way that Albert was signed to Stax after all, as these releases didn't make a commercial dent. What they lacked in sales they made up for in sheer drive and talent, as this cookin' record attests to.

from 1965...

Great song. Has that Albert King trademark all over it, even though he sounds like a kid!
