AllMusic Review by

There's just something about the name King in the modern blues world, where, beginning in the 1960s, four Kings -- B.B., Albert, Freddie, and Earl -- seemed to dominate the scene. This little single-disc sampler presents three of these King-named guitar slingers (there's no B.B. King here), featuring four tracks from Freddie King (including "Key to the Highway"), three tracks from Earl King (including "Those Lonely, Lonely Nights"), and two tracks from Albert King (including "Born Under a Bad Sign").
