THIS TITLE CANNOT BE PRE-ORDERED - AVAILABLE IN STORE ONLY 04-13-19 RSD TITLE - Born Under A Bad Sign is Albert Kings legendary first album for Stax Records, featuring Booker T. & The MGs and the Memphis Horns. The Indianola, Mississippi-born King of the Blues Guitar, cemented his legacy with this debut set. While hed recorded for labels like Vee-Jay, Parrot and Bobbin, it was his chemistry with the Stax team label executives Al Bell, Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton, songwriters Booker T. Jones and William Bell, and backing from Booker T. & the MGs and the Memphis Horns that put King on the blues map. Kings first Stax recording was Laundromat Blues, included on this album. Booker T. Jones and Stax soul singer William Bell came up with the thundering bass riff that defined the title track Born Under a Bad Sign. The song notched #49 on the R&B chart in 1967. The album has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and included in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. This ALL-ANALOG reissue has been mastered from the original mono tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Memphis Record Pressing. The mono mix of this album has been unavailable on vinyl since the album's original 1967 release.
