Take a look at the cover of this “Albert King” signature licks DVD. Just looking at the cover en passant, you would think you are going to watch Albert teaching you signature licks just as he did with Stevie Ray Vaughan in Session. No so fast! Read the small print in the left gutter on the DVD cover and you’ll see “Featuring Andy Aledort” spelled out and that little text phrase means there’s no Albert King on the DVD. You get Andy pretending to be Albert and you feel cheated.
The DVD is okay for learning some Albert King licks, but if you’ve ever seen Albert in concert or wailing with Stevie, then you know an “Albert King” DVD without Albert King is no DVD at all.
Albert King is all
over YouTube teaching and playing, so skip this DVD and drink in the goodness of Albert
in concert for free instead:
Point made. ‘Nuff said.
