Considering the talent that he shows throughout this 1983 album (which was released for the first time in 1995), it is very surprising that tenor-saxophonist Bobby King is so obscure. Based in Los Angeles and a veteran of stints with Lionel Hampton, Stan Kenton, Maynard Ferguson, and Don Ellis, among others (and one who sat in with John Coltrane and Miles Davis), King is an impressive tenor-saxophonist who also plays some Phil Woods-inspired alto on "War and Peace." Although four of the six selections are straight-ahead, Bobby King is not shy to take the music outside, and is open to the tonal distortions of Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and Albert Ayler.

In the spring of 1981 Irish Republican Bobby Sands' 66-day hunger strike brought the attention of the world to his cause. Drawing on an Irish Republican tradition of martyrdom, Sands' emotive, non-violent protest to be classified as a political prisoner became a defining moment in 20th century Irish history. Sands' death after 66 days marked a key turning point in the relationship between Britain and Ireland, and brought a global spotlight to the Northern Irish conflict which eventually triggered international efforts to resolve it. 66 DAYS is a major feature length documentary exploring Sands' remarkable life and death, 35 years on from his ultimate sacrifice.

Primarily known as sidemen, pianist Pinetop Perkins and guitarist Hubert Sumlin, if not as widely recognized as the artists they've supported, do have something of a legendary status in the blues world. Thus, this CD where the two of them take the lead (providing vocals as well) is aptly titled. The material consists mainly of longtime standards such as "Got My Mojo Working," "Rock Me Baby," "Hoochie Coochie Man," and "The Sky Is Crying," all performed with the considerable skill attained through years of experience. If Perkins and Sumlin's approach to these tunes isn't exactly innovative, it is rock solid and energetic, with plenty of excellent lead work from them both. Also notable is Annie Raines's harmonica, which provides solid counterpoint to the two leads, and occasionally takes the lead on its own.

Having grown up in the Dallas-Forth Worth, Texas music seen since 1970, Bobby brought his music to Austin, Texas in 1972 and became a house regular at the legendary Antone’s rubbing shoulders with the likes of Albert Collins, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, Luther Allison and many other giants of the blues. He definitely possesses a hard Texas attack in his guitar playing that is chock full of bent notes. At times you can detect traces of Stevie Ray Vaughn in his husky vocal delivery. It is never mimicry, but the natural quality of his voice. He is backing is the usual bass-drums-keyboards with occasional female vocals by Lisa Marshall. Nothing over produced here. All but two songs are originals.
