Available On Vinyl For The First Time In Over 25 Years! A 1971 Blues & Rock Classic! 180g Vinyl!

Features Former Taj Mahal Guitarist Jesse Edwin Davis & Drummer Jim Keltner! Includes Rendition Of Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women!"

1971's Lovejoy was Albert King's most fully realized attempt to bridge the divide between blues and rock. Although recorded a long way from King's home in Lovejoy, Ill., the singer and guitarist delivered blistering renditions of numbers like the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women," Taj Mahal's "She Caught The Katy And Left Me A Mule To Ride," and producer Don Nix's "Going Back to Luka."

Albert King, one of the single most influential bluesman in history, single-handedly ushered blues into the modern era by combining his direct, urgent Mississippi blues style with contemporary soul rhythms. This 1971 release, named for King's hometown of Lovejoy, Ill., is the artist's most fully realized attempt to bridge the divide between blues and rock.

Produced by former Mar-Key member Don Nix, the sessions were split between Hollywood and Muscle Shoals and included onetime Taj Mahal guitarist Jesse Edwin Davis and drum ace Jim Keltner. King delivers blistering rendition of numbers like the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women" and Taj's "She Caught The Katy And Life Me A Mule To Ride."
