Although a Texas boy, King came to musical maturity on Chicago's West Side, along with Magic Sam, Otis Rush and Buddy Guy. During the early 60s, he made a groundbreaking series of records, vocal and instrumental - "Have You Ever Loved A Woman" and "Hideaway" later became standards during the British blues boom. In 1966, he made a couple of lacklustre records before signing with Leon Russell's Shelter label. Russell had a deep appreciation of King's music and knew how to combine traditional material with contemporary arrangements. It showed that Freddie's talents were still intact on a set of standard blues that included "Dust My Broom", and "Key To The Highway". The diamond however is "Going Down", with the world's greatest descending riff.
