King King is the debut album by the blues-rock band The Red Devils. It was recorded live at King King Club in Los Angeles during three or four of their regular Monday-night performances in 1991. The album captures the immediacy and informality of a small club performance. It features the band's interpretation of blues songs originally recorded by Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Howlin' Wolf, and Willie Dixon as well as some band originals.
King King was released in July 1992 and a review in USA Today called it "the year's most electrifying live album, a stunning debut". According to the Los Angeles Times, "King King is a 12-song live recording that captures the band in fine, aggressive form at the La Brea Avenue club". Allmusic gave the album a three out of five star rating, who called it a mix of straight-ahead blues and singer/harmonica player Lester Butler's later alternative rock.
