Freddie King: Taking Care Of Business 7CD Box 104-Page Book

7-CD Box, LP-size, 104 pages hardcover book, 168 tracks, playing time 549:28 minutes.

Everything the legendary electric blues guitarist Freddie King cut in the studio from 1956 to 1973 for El-Bee, Federal, King, Cotillion-Atlantic, and Leon Russell's Shelter Records! Every killer instrumental he waxed during his early 1960s hitmaking heyday, including Driving Sideways, Wash Out, Low Tide, and Remington Ride plus his original hit recordings of Hide Away, Lonesome Whistle Blues, San-Ho-Zay,
I'm Tore Down, and his piledriving Going Down! Seven completely full discs including early rarities and previously unreleased alternate takes of some of his best-known Federal classics including You've Got To Love Her With A Feeling, Have You Ever Loved A Woman, and See See Baby, plus previously unissued Federal Recordings. An entire unissued 1968 demo session cut in Dallas that includes his rendition of
J. B. Lenoir
's The Mojo (available in no other studio version). Incredible unpublished photos and memorabilia plus comprehensive liner notes from Bill Dahl!

Freddie King, the legendary Texas Cannonball, was one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time whose fiery style laid the foundation of modern rock guitar. 'Rolling Stone' placed him #25 on the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time because he profoundly influenced Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others. Of the three seminal postwar blues guitarists answering to the name of King, Freddie King brought the highest energy levels to his studio exploits and probably influenced most rock axemen of all. Freddie Kings innovative Texas/West Side Chicago hybrid approach was absolutely unique, and his double-threat hitmaking career as singer and instrumentalist was unmatched. No blues guitar god ever threw more of his muscular physique into his incendiary fretwork. And what a commanding, emotionally charged voice Freddie King had!

This epic collection is the ultimate tribute to one of the most influential blues guitarists the genre has ever seen. Nothing like it has ever been attempted, and no dedicated blues fan can live without it!

Artist description "King, Freddie"

Freddie King

Obwohl er am 3. September 1934 in der Nähe von Gilmer, Texas, geboren wurde, verbrachte Freddy King seine musikalisch prägenden Jahre in Chicago. Von 1950 bis 1963 trug der stattliche Gitarrist zur Veränderung des Blues der Windy City von der Ensembletradition hin zum neuen, aggressiveren Sound der West Side bei – mit seinen sensationellen Gitarrenfähigkeiten und rausgebrüllten Vocals.

Freddie Christian (King war der Nachname seiner Mutter; Federal Records änderte später die Schreibweise seines Vornamens in Freddy) lernte schon früh unter Anleitung seines Onkels Leon King Gitarre spielen. Die 78er von Lightnin' Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker und Louis Jordan machten großen Eindruck auf den Jungen. Er siedelte im Dezember 1950 nach Chicago über; groß für sein Alter, wurde er in die örtlichen Blueskneipen reingelassen und konnte seine Helden aus der Nähe persönlich sehen. Die brillanten Gitarristen Jimmy Rogers, Robert Jr. Lockwood und Eddie Taylor gaben ihm wichtige musikalische Tipps.

 "Er versuchte, zu spielen zu lernen", sagte der 1997 verstorbene Rogers. "Er kam immer rein, setzte sich hin und schaute uns beim Spielen zu, mir und Muddy." Freddy setzte das, was er sah, gut um. "Er ging dann zurück nach Hause und übte, bis diese Licks bei ihm ganz gut klangen." King entwickelte eine heiße Zwei-Finger-Gitarrentechnik mit einem Plastik-Daumenpick und einem Metallpick am Zeigefinger. "So spielte ich auch, und er beobachtete mich", sagte Rogers. Freddy spielte in verschiedenen lokalen Formationen und stieß 1956 zu den Blues Cats des jungen Bluesharpspielers Earlee Payton. "Payton trennte sich von uns", erinnerte sich deren 1997 verstorbener Bassist Robert 'Big Mojo' Elem. "Danach war Freddy King der Bandleader."

King machte sein Plattendebüt 1956 mit dem fetzigen That's What You Think für das winzige El-Bee Label von John Burton, musste dann jedoch vier Jahre auf seine nächste Aufnahmegelegenheit warten. In der Zwischenzeit rackerte er sich an die Spitze der neuen West-Side-Bewegung, zusammen mit Magic Sam. "Alle sagten: 'Mann, du musst dir Freddy King ansehen!'", meint sein West-Side-Gitarrenkollege Eddy Clearwater.

Ein anderer junger Chicagoer Gitarrist, Syl Johnson, spielte eine Vermittlerrolle, als Freddy schließlich beim Federal-Unterlabel von Syd Nathans in Cincinnati beheimateten King Records unterkam. "Er hörte davon, dass ich bei Federal unterschreibe, also wollte er versuchen, auch auf das Label zu kommen", sagt Syl. "Er gab mir ein Demo und ich schickte es an Sonny Thompson." Sonny, ein in Mississippi geborener Pianist, der 1948 mit seinem zweiteiligen Instrumental Long Gone für die Plattenfirma Miracle die Spitze der R&B-Charts erreichte, bevor er zu Nathans King-Label wechselte, leitete das Chicagoer Büro von Federal und King. Thompson nahm Freddy für Federal unter Vertrag und produzierte seine Debütsession in Cincinnati am 26. August 1960.

Wie gewöhnlich übernahm Thompson auch den Platz am Klavier, Bill Willis spielte Bass und Philip Paul Schlagzeug. Nicht weniger als drei Hits wurden an diesem Tag eingespielt, der größte war die einzige Instrumentalnummer. Hide Away war nach einer von Freddys Lieblingskneipen auf der West Side benannt, Mel's Hideaway Lounge. "Das war lange Zeit ein richtiger Hotspot", sagte Rogers. Das Stück bestand aus einer Reihe von geborgten Riffs, die zu einem nahtlosen Ganzen zusammengefügt wurden.

Das Grundthema hatte King vom Slidegitarrenhexer Hound Dog Taylor übernommen, der seine Kreation Taylor's Boogie nannte. "Er war der Erste, der anfing es zu spielen", sagt Clearwater. "Dann spielte es Magic Sam." Der nahm 1961 seine eigene Version für Mel Londons Chief-Logo auf und nannte sie Do The Camel Walk. Aber Sam verwendete nicht die zwei Chorusse, die Freddy auf seinen Bass-Saiten spielte und die direkt aus Jimmy McCracklins 58er-Hit The Walk kamen, sowie die 12 Takte aus Henry Mancinis Peter Gunn. Der weit offene Break-Akkord stammte entweder von Lockwood oder Freddy Robinson.

"Wir spielten es ungefähr drei-, vier-, vielleicht fünf- oder sechsmal und wir dachten: 'Okay, langsam sind wir so weit, es auch aufzunehmen'", erinnerte sich der 2010 verstorbene Willis. "Der alte Herr (Nathan) sagte: 'Ich hab’s schon!'" Der gerissene alte Syd hatte einen #5 R&B-/#29 Pop-Smash-Hit eingefangen – und das definitive elektrische Bluesgitarren-Instrumentalstück.
