Crosscut Saw reissues Albert King's 1983 album San Francisco '83 (a studio album, not a live one), adding two previously unreleased cuts. His first new release in five years, it wasn't one of King's better records -- but it did represent a return to a basic five-piece sound, an improvement upon his over-produced outings of the late '70s. ~ Richie Unterberger
