Steve Cropper: With A Little Help From My Friends/Steve Cropper, Pop Staples, Albert King: Jammed Together (Stax)

John Morthland, Rolling Stone, 23 August 1969

LOOK AT THE picture of Steve Cropper on his new album cover and you see what appears to be a quiet, reserved, young man – certainly not a lead guitarist. Play the record and you find that a lead guitarist is exactly what Cropper attempts to be on this solo album.
