#491: Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King

1.10.2011


Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King (1967)

Favorite track(s): "Kansas City"

Thoughts: Featuring Booker T and the MGs, this is a solid Blues album. And I especially like the cover art full of bad omens.

I didn't know why Ace of Spades was considered a bad omen and just did a considerable amount of googling to find out why. Super interesting...but I'm too exhausted to find out why snake eyes is bad thing. Do you know?

Good question! I looked up 'snake eyes' and apparently they're bad luck as the lowest roll you can get with dice, and therefore it makes you lose most games?

Also, the 'ace of spades' always makes me think of this motorhead song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZjEk2QEb8c
