Albert White: Soul of the Blues $12.00


Albert White is no stranger to rhythm and blues. -Ardie Dean, MMRF Advisory Board Member & MMRF Drummer

Albert began playing guitar at an early age. His uncle, the legendary Piano Red, noticed that Albert was actually playing self-made chords on a ukulele at the age of nine. Red sent Albert to take lessons from his guitarist, Wesley Jackson. Albert and his friend Marion Smith were soon camped out in front of juke joints, playing and singing for tips.

In early 1962, Albert became the bandleader for Piano Red’s “Dr. Feelgood and the Interns.” Red had scored a hit with his song “Dr. Feelgood” and dressed his band in intern jackets and nurses uniforms. One of the “nurses” was Beverly “Guitar” Watkins who became a lifelong friend to Albert. When Red disbanded, Albert joined the “Tams” from the late 60’s to the early 70’s, and by the mid 70’s, joined Hank Ballard and the midnighters.

In recent decades, Albert’s own sound emerged, gigging with musicians in Atlanta, Georgia. Albert is currently touring the globe with the Music Maker Revue with his blues that makes everybody “Feel good." -Ardie Dean
