By the time singer-songwriter Albert Washington went to record the tracks that would be released on his career-defining LP, 'Sad And Lonely', in 1973, he was already a veteran on the recording scene. He had singles recorded on a dozen labels, in styles ranging from gospel to blues and soul. Recorded with the Memphis Horns, the tracks on 'Sad And Lonely' are prime southern gospel-infected soul, funk and raw Albert King style blues, bearing the heavy influence of both James Brown's funk and Otis Redding's Memphis soul. Albert's music is full of lament, urban hustle and lost love, the precise guitar strokes alongside Washington's soaring vocals create the mood for the blues to invade the funk parts. The female backup singers' harmonies are the cherry on top and the album is a funky emotional onslaught with relentless dance grooves from start to end. The outpour of talent featured here on `Sad and Lonely' was carefully produced by Bernie Mendelson (Donald Austin, Melvin Sparks, Ceasar Frazier), engineered by Ronnie Capone (Stax) and then mastered by the legendary Howard Craft. Limited to 1000 copies.
