KING RECORDS 1962                                    LP 852


 The Big Blues is a blues album by Albert King, released in 1962
 by King Records. Featuring mostly songs composed by Albert King himself,
 this was his first album and the only one before he signed with
 Stax Records, where he would record most albums along his career.
 The album is a collection of songs previously released by
 King Records and Bobbin Records as singles and B-sides. 
King recorded "Blues at Sunrise" and "Let's Have A Natural Ball"
 (which appears on the album) for Bobbin in 1956, which helped 
to establish him in recording. King Records bought his contract 
from Bobbin in 1961.
