Albert King hardly has to make the statement in the title – as the record's plenty funky throughout, and has that great mix of blues with hipper 70s styles that you'd find in his best material for Stax Records! King's at the core, both on vocals and guitar – but the set also features some nice larger arrangements, and work by The Bar-Kays, Movement, and Memphis Horns – who help give the record a sweet Stax Records vibe, and a great setting for Albert to work in. Even Hot Buttered Soul provide a bit of backing vocals at points – and titles include "Cross Cut Saw", "Flat Tire", "I Wanna Get Funky", "Playing On Me", "Til My Back Ain't Go No Bone", and "Travelin Man".

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
