Yeah I like the album Albert King Does The Kings Things from 1969 Frands and I still quite often play it although I did read not long ago that Albert wasn't that keen on recording it when he was at STAX records and he was kind of was pushed into recording it by the record company and it worked out pretty good I think. Also I read a review of the album that an ordinary music fan had wrote about the album and he said that Elvis should have returned the compliment and recorded some of Albert's blues influenced songs which I thought was a good comment. I am guessing that Elvis may well have listened to Albert's renditions of Elvis's rock & roll influenced songs like Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, Heartbreak Hotel & Blue Suede Shoes.
Albert King has made a lot of great music Imho! I bet Elvis have been listening to Albert's music as well. I have some of his albums and it is just awesome blues when it's best.
