Old King Gold Volume 7 re-up

Side One:
01) That's What You're Doing To Me - Billy Ward & The Dominoes
02) Don't Take It So Hard - Earl King
03) The Greasy Spoon - Hank Marr
04) Don't Throw Your Love On Me So Strong - Albert King
05) I Want A Bowlegged Woman - Bull Moose Jackson
06) It Won't Be This Way Always - The King Pins

Side 2:
01) Annie Had A Baby - Hank Ballard & The Midnighters
02) Dearest - The Swallows
03) Mellow Blues (Part 1) - Sonny Thompson
04) Mellow Blues (Part 2) - Sonny Thompson
05) I'm Tore Up - Billy Gayles
06) Diamonds And Pearls - The Escos

At last, the dreaded Volume 7. Dreaded because it is so badly pressed that the lead-in vanishes off the edge of the disc, leading to much cursing by myself as I tried to get the stylus down just right. Mission accomplished, and here is the updated rip. Mo' greasy R&B for those who dig this sort of groove. Keep on keepin' on.

Love it! Some great tracks on here.

Don't Take It So Hard - Earl King took me back to an old favourite CD of mine, All Star Rock & Roll Revue, which I see is currently offered on Amazon for the unlikely price of £1,651.00 (but hey, FREE delivery). Or £1.75 on eBay (with Free Postage). The choice is yours.
