Stringkiller's CD recommendations. Albert King.

Albert King - Now I can't find the album I want to turn you onto -if you haven't already worn it out- called 'Born under a bad sign' (on the Stax label - with Booker T and the MGs (with Mr Steve Cropper on Esquire/Telecaster guitar) So if you see one CD with these tracks from the mid sixties - get it -Born under a bad sign, Oh Pretty Woman, Crosscut saw, Laundromat blues, Personal manager, Kansas City, The Hunter ( ever hear vibrato master Paul Kossof of Free do this?) Otherwise there is an interesting bootleg with Stevie Ray Vaughan . Try Albert King - King Of The Blues Guitar (looks like it got the above tracks) or Live Wire Blues Power.

Guitars used at this gig

The Guitar used on this number (and in the first three sets) a 1962
Telecaster Custom reissue featured in Stringkiller's Telecaster Shoot out.

Amplification was my Mesa Boogie Subway Blues
22 watts of heavenly joy and a Mesa Boogie V Twin pedal. That Alnico II neck pickup at the beginning with that fat tone (reverb is on 10) with the slow bends just does it for me Stringkiller ;-). The bends at the end of my solo are behind the nut (where the strings go over and into the tuners) bends. I like the way Raphael is fitting into the band, the song is in Ab and it has thrown more than one piano player a loop ;-)
The Bass guitar used throughout the concert is a Musicman Stringray Bass (Date unknown)
Bass guitar amplification was through the Soundboard (new, I did not notice the make but you'll notice the voice had no reverberation) and Philip always likes to have his small Fender Bass Amplifier around.
