Most of the major hits from Freddy King’s early career are contained here, including his songs that most infl uenced such guitarists as Eric Clapton, Albert Collins, Jeff Beck, Peter Green and Luther Allison. Present here are the vigorous R&B of “See See Baby” with its delightfully honkin’ sax, the sensual strut of “Lonesome Whistle Blues,” a hard-swingin’ early version of “I’m Tore Down,” the boogie stomp of “Takin’ Care of Business,” and the legendary guitar brilliance of “You’ve Got to Love Her with a Feeling,” among other highlights.

This collection also contains a number of instrumental tunes like the B-side “Texas Oil,” the smash “Hide Away” (which became Freddy King’s signature tune; it also became a standard for bluesy bar bands on both sides of the Atlantic, and a regular feature of Eric Clapton’s live sets), and the blues standards “San-Ho-Zay” and “The Stumble,” which demonstrate why King is widely regarded as a guitar colossus.

All these sensational sides constitute the foundation of Freddy King’s incomparable discography. It is an indispensable set for any fan of modern blues.
