A 1991 collection of Albert King's recordings for Stax, Roadhouse Blues doesn't quite live up its title as it isn't down and dirty like the blues played at an out-of-the-way jukejoint. Instead, this is slick, funky soul-blues that emphasizes the blues somewhat but certainly has a bit of the slick, keyboard-and-horn-fueled funkiness of the '70s. There are a couple of oddities here-a version of "Killing Floor" that has a vocal, a live version of "Match Box Blues" from Wattstax-but this is best to be thought of as a nice sampler of Albert King's somewhat unheard and definitely underrated early '70s work. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
