Hotter than molten steel and best-known for his searing, assertive guitar solos and dynamic showmanship, the great Freddy King was a forceful presence and formidable figure in two of the most prominent blues scenes: Texas and Chicago. Revered by his fans and respected by his peers, King was an innovative instrumentalist and underrated singer, who would move beyond electric blues, R&B and soul to make commercial inroads into funk. There was a time, though, in the early and mid- 1960s when his records were among the most influential in blues, particularly for British and European audiences. This quintessential collector’s edition includes King’s first two albums, originally released by the King label in 1961: the long unavailable and splendid debut Freddy King Sings, and the instrumental follow-up Let’s Hide Away and Dance Away.

Both albums have been remastered and packaged together in this very special release, which also includes 3 bonus tracks from the same period. This is the material upon which Freddy King’s legend was built, and is truly indispensable for any fan of modern blues.
