Standing well over six feet and weighing in at around 250 pounds, it's no surprise that Albert King earned he nickname "The Velvet Bulldozer." Standing on stage with his Gibson Flying V (named Lucy), King cut an imposing visual figure. Still, he made an even bigger impression through his recordings, reaching fans all over the world with his punchy, aggressive guitar playing and his commanding voice. His debut album The Big Blues is a dynamic mix of twelve vocal and instrumental tracks. All hail King Albert!
