KING, Freddie: Taking Care of Business Box Set - 7 CD Box Set BC
[BCD 16979 GK]

Everything the legendary electric blues guitarist 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 Incredible unpublished photos and memorabilia plus comprehensive liner notes from Bill Dahl!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 (who recorded several of King's songs including 'Hide Away', 'Have You Ever Loved A Woman', 'I'm Tore Down'), Jeff Beck ('The Stumble'), Stevie Ray Vaughan ('Hide Away'), and many others. -- 'He was the guy' said Jimmie Vaughan. 'He was powerful. It was unbelievable. And I never heard anyone play louder back then!' -- 'If I'm building a solo,' said Eric Clapton, 'I'll start with a Freddie King line. Of all the people I played with, he was the most stimulating.' -- 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, including Eric Clapton and Jimmie Vaughan. King's 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 he had! This epic collection brings together for the first time in one spectacular box every released studio recording Freddie King made from 1956 to 1973. It includes both sides of his rare debut single for tiny El-Bee Records, a slew of Federal alternate takes (several previously unheard), and an entire unissued demo session from 1968 consisting of Freddie's only known studio rendition of J.B. Lenoir's The Mojo, and three dynamite untitled instrumentals. Everything King subsequently had out on Cotillion and Shelter is here, too. - There have been many Freddie King 'Greatest Hits' packages on the market over the decades focusing on one chapter of his career, but this 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!
