Joseph D. "Cast" King (February 16, 1926 – December 13, 2007) was a country musician and songwriter from Old Sand Mountain, Alabama. King released the album, "Saw Mill Man", in 2005. He was aged 79 at the time of recording. A song from the album entitled "Outlaw" was included in the score of Gus Van Sant's 2007 film, Paranoid Park. Saw Mill Man" drew comparisons to Johnny Cash's American Recordings series.
Cast King's story is an interesting one - hailing from Old Sand Mountain, AL, King was "discovered" when a gentleman named Matt Downer began recording old-time musicians plucking away at his grandfather's house.
Cast' King was born in 1926 and 'Saw Mill Man' was his debut album (in 1955 he and his band recorded a few tracks at Memphis' legendary Sun Studio). Brimming with rimy murder ballads and foggy drinking songs, King seems to have been beamed in direct from a different sepia drenched era; with country-music aficionado Matt Downer coaxing the retired songwriter into the studio to record 'Saw Mill Man'.
One Man is the second solo studio album by English musician Mark King, bassist and vocalist of Level 42. It was released in September 1998, more than 14 years after King's previous solo album, Influences. It includes songs co-written by King and Level 42's former guitarist, Boon Gould. All tracks composed by Mark King and Boon Gould; except where indicated. Swimming with Sky" – 4:47. Half Written Songs" – 4:17. Pamela" (Mark King) – 2:20. Take My Hand" – 4:34.
