What a storming piece of work!! What a revelation!!.
on 28 March 2015
Being a regular listener of BBC4 Desert Island Discs I was amazed to hear a guest one week select "Help me through the day" by Freddie King which was utterly spellbinding. I already have a compilation of Freddy (note the name change) Kings early classic Federal recordings and largely on the basis of those I have tended to place him third behind BB King and Albert King in terms of my personal preference. But I sought out this track and found it on this cd and bought it immediately.
I now have to revise my opinion of Freddie. This is a stonkingly superb album. Backed by some superlatively talented and familiar musicians the template for the whole cd is well and truly set by the opening track and the fierce intensity (without being overbearing) of that track is maintained all the way through to the final track irrespective of whether the track is, rocking, boogeeing or a slow blues.
Buy it and I defy anyone not to enjoy it as much as I am
