Rock Revival's Classic Albums (1973): Al Kooper 'Naked Songs'

Al Kooper is one of the heroes of rock, setting up Blood Sweat and tears, helping Dylan go electric and playing on the fantastic Super Sessions album with Stephen Stills and Mike Bloomfield, discovering Lynyrd Skynyrd and playing on 100's of major rock albums

This album shows the marvel of his skills when he sets out to make an album of his own.

What is most amazing is the sheer diversity of the record; blues, gospel, motown, country and country rock are all featured in an album that sounds like a history of the music of the day

Jolie - Al Kooper

Highly recommended
