In 1978, the amazing meeting of two musical giants Albert King and Allen Toussaint was born. The two geniuses got together and recorded one of the grooviest blues and funk albums of all time “New Orleans Heat.” As blues were going through a cultural renaissance since the late 60’s, bluesmen like Albert King were in high demand. Rock, blues and urban radio stations and retailers knew a good thing, especially with New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint spearheading the project.

The LP sessions began with Allen Toussaint’s classic "Get Out Of My Life Woman" which shows a more funk blues rhythm groove, truly kicking off the album to a high note. Following the album up with a solid revisit on Albert King’s standard "Born Under A Bad Sign", and then the Memphis blues belter "The Feeling" made this a definitive listen for both blues and rock fans alike.
