Door to Door 
Albert King & Otis Rush

King performs on eight of these 14 cuts, three from Parrot (recorded in Chicago in 1953) and the rest from St. Louis, 1961. King's mellow yet forced-out vocal, his straight-arrow guitar split the bulls-eye every time. Two songs are absolute sapphires: "Wild Woman," with King's fingers and vocal chords in a lively duet; and a get-it-on, can't-sit-down, Howlin' Wolf-Willie Dixon rocker, "Howlin' for My Darling," complete with trumpet, saxes, and staccato beat.

Otis Rush, another steel-string southpaw, handles the remaining numbers. Not so much on guitar, Rush makes it all the way to the top of the basis of his vocalizing, which manages to be strangled and painful, precise and lovely all at once. Rush's sides are from Chess in 1960, six of them reissued or released for the first time on Door to Door. The two that matter most: "All Your Love," a remake of his earlier Cobra hit — city blues with solid Latin rhythm from Willie Dixon and Odie Payne — and the all-time classic, "So Many Roads." Along with "I Can't Quit You Baby," that superb number guarantees Rush immortality; the band is completely together, and Rush literally chokes with emotion — but beautifully!

songs are more or less alternating artists - they do NOT perform together. 

tracks are; 

Searchin' for a woman
Bad luck
So close
Howlin' for my darling
I can't stop
Won't be hanging around
I'm satisfied
All your love
You know my love
Merry way
Wild woman
So many roads
