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."
