Editorial Reviews

Freddie King in concert was an event to behold. His performances were powerful and filled with emotional singing coupled with burning soulful licks played on his Gibson 355. The rare footage presented on this video features a complete set by Freddie and his band recorded at the Sugarbowl in South Carolina on September 22nd, 1972. All the sheer power and joy of Freddie King is presented in this DVD. NTSC all region, 62 minutes.

This may be the best DVD that features Freddie King yet released in terms of over all song content. Featuring footage from the Sugarbowl concert and also bonus footage from an LA recording session. The LA footage is available on the CD "Key to the Highway" although the audio is poor on the CD it is better on the DVD. Look for his European concert DVD released later this year. Track list: Sugarbowl concert; Big Legged Woman, Aint Nobodys Business, Tore Down, Key to the Highway, Boogie Chillin, Have you Ever Loved a Woman, Goin Down, LA concert; Have You Ever Loved a Woman, Look over Yonders Wall, Aint Nobodys Business, Whole Lotta Lovin.

The playing on this DVD is superb, rating 5 stars, but the constant and annoying cutaways, sometimes on each beat, are unnerving, and made me close my eyes to avoid dizziness. This is such a shame, as watching Freddie's face as he plays is a trancendental experience. Also, there's almost something wrong about a blues show in blinding daylight. The LA bonus songs are better, that version of Have You Ever Loved a Woman putting Eric to shame, and the camera barely roving. We're lucky to have any Freddie live footage, as it is superior to his studio work.

Four songs into this concert I am already declaring it the best Freddie King recording I have ever heard. It's not in a surround format, but it still sounds better than I expected for a 1972 outdoor recording. Fans of his studio albums will likely agree that the part of his songs you wait for is the all-too- short solo in the middle. Here these are stretched longer than you will see on any of those television recordings (vide infra) Freddie King always left me wanting more out of every song; in this performance he delivers it consistently. Even on the bonus TV songs, that fat Gibson tone cuts through the limitations of time and stings so good. 5 stars for a legend at the top of his game.

Freddie King is without a doubt one of the best guitarist's ever. He could play with the tasteful economy of notes that people normally attribute to BB King, the funk and rhythm of the then contemporary rock guitarists he influenced...and do it better. Much better.

This DVD is great. The image quality is very good, which is amazing considering the video tape is from 1972 and I doubt anyone even remotely thought of saving it for this purpose. It looks almost as good as some of the video quality from the "American Folk Blues" sets.

Bonus footage in a nice feature, and again is another stand out King performance

This is great archival footage of the Legend Freddie King in full flight.It is rather short but nonetheless essential viewing for Freddie or Blues fans in general.The picture quality is a little soft but this rare footage is priceless anyway you can get it.It is more of a concert experience without interuptions as compared to some of the other Freddie King videos that are available.It basically cost me [price]in Aus dollars but I'm more than happy with it.
If you like Blues buy it just to check out Freddie's unusual finger pickin'alone.
Only four stars in the hope a perfect copy surfaces.

Great raw footage of one of the greatest blues musicians of all time. I had seen very little video of the King before this and boy have I missed out. I wish someone had introduced me to his music much earlier in my life. A "must have" for anyone who likes the blues!
