Ah, the three Kings...
Is this from E.C Was Here LP?
I used to listen to this ALL the time- but it's been a while. Muscular guitar all the way around...
Freddie wasn't on that album, but it is from @ the same time.
Might as well toss in another version, this one from Roy Buchanan
Albert Collins is a great player but he gives the impression he can't play in a key without a capo helping him play with open.notes. As a result, he is limited in playing only a couple of frets on the neck of the guitar. Especially when his capo is this high.
With John Mayall, at 3:43, his own guitar player Buddy Whittington allows his solo to breathe, like when you talk. The Tele sounds great, and there is a lot of expression and different style in the one solo. I wish he received more credit for his ability.
Thanks for that !
A great way to start my day.
Albert had a unique style which no one could reproduce, and I think he blew the others away. The capo and Dm (?) tuning were part of his signature sound, but I find it hard to believe he couldn't play more conventionally if necessary.
I saw Eric Clapton and Freddie King in concert back in 1975 in Houston at the old Colosseum. One of my favorite live shows I ever saw. Freddie opened and was incredible, then Eric did his set before Freddie came back out and joined him. This live recording above was surely from that tour.
So his lead playing is very limited if you remove half the.neck as note options. Then he plays like 6 fills over and over again. Don't get me wrong he is great at what he does, it gets to be a lot of the same after a while.
Here’s the unedited version with The Band.....
