Although Stax was essentially a soul label, they had a big umbrella: gospel artists like the Staple Singers, novelty performers like Rufus Thomas and bluesmen like harmonica player Little Sonny and guitarist Albert King. Part of the triumvirate of Kings that ruled the blues guitar roost in the '60s and '70s (along with B.B. and Freddie), Albert King had a dramatic guitar attack that he married with a powerful vocal style. Though his recordings are almost uniformly strong across his career, few are as satisfying as this one: its opening title track is a tour de force featuring both King and the Stax crew at their pistol-packing best. A strong cover of "Breaking Up Somebody's Home" is another highlight.
