    Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan's In Session resonates with a once in a lifetime feel. It's Master and Student, Jedi Knight and Padawan, two good friends. However you may wish to define it, the simple fact is that not only does the music reflect the deep bond between them, but the small bits of conversation between tracks allows us to eavesdrop. Stevie's respect for Albert is clear, he's happy to play the supporting role, not the featured. Those who are familiar with Albert King the man and bluesman know that he never took a supporting role, as far as he was concerned the people who came to see him play were not there to hear him play rhythm guitar. And yet he does that exact thing on In Session, gleefully supporting Stevie after he asks him tol play Pride and Joy. I wish there were more albums like this. Rest in peace gentlemen, your musice made the world a better place.

    The whole album is great, but you have to buy the whole album to get "Blues at Sunrise", but the one song is worth the price of the whole album. 15 minutes of listening to two of the best blues guitarist trade riffs is increadable. Listening to the backup band keeping with these two legends is increadable as well. If you love guitar blues, or are just starting to get cuirous about the blues, try this live album. Blues at Sunrise will have an honored place in my Long Song collection.

    Listening to these two unbelievable blues guitarist always bring me to another place in my mind, I am truly saddened that they are no longer with us but Heaven has put together one great group of blues players with these two plus Jimi and Janis.

    Saw this a few nights ago on a PBS fund raiser. Wonderful interactions and professional dueling solo. One is temped to hand young SRV the crown early on, but Albert King proves the race goes to the more versatial, patient and gifted King. Great Blues jamming by perhaps the two best ever.
  • great blues album

    Man, great stuff. Delta meets Texas. PBS wanted $85 for it. A steal!

    I am only reviewing this one piece of music as that is the only one I purchased from this CD. I also have B.B. King's version which is also good but this version is slightly superior due to the excellent guitar work of Stevie Ray Vaughan and the great singing of Albert King. If you are a blues fan then I am recommending this piece of music for your collection. It cooks.

    the mentor/student respect you hear in the dialouge on the album is amazing, to hear stevie when he was young in his carreer being given advice from mr king is so cool. A true must have for all blues fans!
  • Superb meeting of two blues guitar legends

    This 1983 live performance summit between a legend and a soon-to-be legend has been reissued a few times on CD, including a hybrid SACD in 2003. This latest CD is a remastered reissue of the original eleven tracks and includes three sets of liner notes. At the time the pair met in a Canadian TV studio, Vaughn was blazing a trail into the blues world with his debut album, Texas Flood. King was long since a legend in the blues world, and though he didn’t recognize the name “Vaughn,” he immediately recognized the guitarist who’d sat in with him whenever he played in Austin. Snippets of dialogue interspersed between the tracks do a good job of showing the personal bond that complemented the guitar slingers’ deep artistic connections. King and Vaughn are backed by the former’s tack sharp road band, and run through a set drawn almost entirely from King’s catalog. You can hear what was on the horizon, though, as Vaughn rips into his own “Pride and Joy” with monster tone and a gutsy vocal. Throughout the session the players trade licks and prod each other with solos that quote all the great players from whom they learned. King’s influence is clear in Vaughn’s playing, but hearing them side-by-side (the recording does a nice job of keeping their guitars separated slightly left and right) gives listeners an opportunity to hear how the same fundamentals change as they filter through different fingers and hardware. As free as both guitarists play, the band, the catalog, and the deference Vaughn shows King all tipped in favor of the latter orchestrating the pacing. This is a master class, King leading the way with his guitar and providing verbal tips in between songs. In any other venue Vaughn would be the master, but here he plays the role of apprentice. How many chances do you get to play with someone who can introduce “Blues at Sunrise” with “This is that thing, uh, I recorded with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin out there at the Fillmore West”? It was a good time to be the apprentice. Anyone who loves King, Vaughn or great blues guitar should catch this one. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2009 hyperbolium dot com]
