Texas blues guitar wizard Freddie King was a major influence on Eric Clapton and many of the British blues-rockers--his sleek, stinging tone was like no other. He performs an eclectic array of cover versions on 1972's TEXAS CANNONBALL, including songs by Bill Withers, Isaac Hayes, Howlin' Wolf, and Leon Russell, and gets sturdy musical support from several musicians who also played with Clapton in the '70s.
