  Ernest King Summary
Ernest King was born on Nov. 23, 1878, in Lorain, Ohio.
King was also the recipient of several foreign awards and decorations.
Many attribute these decisions to King's anglophobia, as the convoys and seaboard flouts were British proposals, and he was loath to have his much-beloved U.S Navy adopt any ideas from the Royal Navy.

  Ernest King - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King was also the recipient of several foreign awards and decorations.
Instead of convoys, King had the U.S Navy and Coast Guard go out on regular patrols searching for submarines; because these patrols occurred on a regular schedule, the U-boats learned the schedule, submerged when the patrols were out and came out when the patrols were in port.
Many blame King's Anglophobia for these decisions as the convoys and turning off the city's lights were British ideas, and King was loath to have his much-beloved U.S Navy adopt any ideas from the Royal Navy.

Ernest Baker last recorded three decades ago, yet he's resurfaced to be part of a decidedly '90s kind of blues album: loud and rocking with blazing drums mixed at the fore and a wall of harp, horn and guitar sound.
Mississippi-born Baker was anointed King Ernest during his soul-circuit days in the mid-'60s and '70s, when he was a dynamic and acrobatic performer in the James Brown mold (see BLUES ACCESS #29) before giving up the ephemeral music business for a day job with the L.A. Sheriff's Department and gospel singing at his church.
But there's no question that the star of the show is King Ernest and his huge instrument: that voice, of course.
