There is also a 2002 DVD covering this 1972 album.
I'd suggest picking up the 2-disc "KING OF THE BLUES".
That CD contains all of these cuts and then some; about 60 in all, in a generous package. There are only a handful of songs that are not up to par and some that are so good you will wonder why you did not already have King in your blues collection. For those looking for a blues CD beyond Freddie's vintage 1950's classics, see "KING OF THE BLUES".
A few people have tried to cover songs featured here. Tab Benoit has adequately attempted "Me & My Guitar" back in 1998, but the growling vocals of Freddie can't be equalled. Every track featured on this CD is superb and the cover art was striking when this album first was issued on vinyl back in 1971.
This CD version comes with several *bonus tracks which adds incentive to purchase it. If you think the Texas Shuffle started with The Vaughan Brothers THINK AGAIN because this was from where it originated.
I was so fortunate to see Freddie King live on stage with Eric Clapton back in summer 1976. He was a giant , both musically and physically!

I would have liked less rock covers and more blues, The blues that are here are fantastic !!!
You can see where Clapton and guys like Tommy Castro got their licks from !
Freddie didn't have the longest career, but this shows he could grind out some duds once in a while. ("Lodi" by CCR is a dumb piece for him to have done. Read morePublished on October 8, 2012 by Puller58
