William Morgan King on June 22, 1946 in Jefferson, Indiana, USA. While growing up in Jefferson, Indiana, King he devoted much of his time as a youth to studies with W.C. Handy’s former pianist Eva Smith, the Louisville Academy of music’s Don Murray, and Indiana University saxophonist/educator Jamey Aebersold.
As a teenager he had won sixteen first place awards in classical piano and clarinet competitions. In 1963 he won a scholarship to Oscar Peterson’s Advanced School of Contemporary Music and in 1964 another scholarship to Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
By 1966, King had relocated to New York and began performing with local community orchestras and big bands. He was a member of The Shadows in 1966 when they hit the Billboard Top 50 with 'Moanin’. This led to work encounters with The Shangri-Las, Dick and Dee Dee, Freddy Cannon, The Dovells, and Ronnie Dove.
He opened for The Beach Boys on three occasions, and appeared with the Dick Clark Caravan of Stars. By 1968, King had left his house piano gig at Louis Jordan's club in Greenwich Village and relocated to Los Angeles where he became Linda Ronstadt’s Music Director and pianist alongside the late Andrew Gold. A year later, he joined Janis Joplin’s Kozmic Blues Band.
King relocated to Toronto for the first time in 1969, signing a recording contract with Capitol Records who would release two albums over the next few years (‘Goodbye Superdad’ and ‘Dixie Peach’) with King as leader. The song "Goodbye Superdad" was the first of many charting singles hits for him which peaked at No. 39 on in June 1973.

    1. Думаю ты прав. Скорей pop-rock, чем джаз-рок.
      Испрадлю. Но там, где брал этот альбом было ниписанно именно так.))
      Спасибо за комментарий!
