Freddie King’s second all-instrumental album, Freddy King Gives You a Bonanza
of Instrumentals, originally released in 1965 on King Records’ Federal
subsidiary, continued the artist’s winning streak, with such memorable King
originals as “Manhole,” “Freeway 75,” “Low Tide” and “Funnybone.” The 12-song LP
demonstrates once again why King was one of his generation’s most revered
Although his career was tragically cut short by his death at the age of 42,
Freddie King was one of America’s most distinctive and influential electric
blues guitarists, leaving an indelible mark on more than one generation of
guitar superstars, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and the Rolling
Stones’ Mick Taylor. The Texas-born axeman began playing guitar at the age of
six, and in his teens moved with his family to the South Side of Chicago, where
he was inspired by witnessing club gigs by such seminal electric bluesmen as
Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers and Elmore James. Originally billed as Freddy King,
he began recording in 1957, revealing a massively influential style that merged
his Texas and Chicago influences, and soon achieved commercial success with a
series of infectious instrumental hits.
