Reissued 1971 album with Jesse Ed Davis, Jim Keltner & Duck Dunn among others

Includes "Honky Tonk Women"

Available on vinyl for the first time in more than 25 years!

Albert King, one of the single most influential bluesmen in history, single-handedly ushered blues into the modern era by combining his direct, urgent Mississippi blues style with contemporary soul rhythms. This 1971 release, named for King's hometown of Lovejoy, Illinois, is the artist's most fully realized attempt to bridge the divide between blues and rock.

Produced by former Mar-Key member Don Nix, the sessions were split between Hollywood and Muscle Shoals and included onetime Taj Mahal guitarist Jesse Edwin Davis and drum ace Jim Keltner. King delivers blistering renditions of numbers  such as the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women" and Taj's "She Caught the Katy and Left Me a Mule to Ride."
