What a great collection of Freddy King that is. Outstanding. I love how he changes the rhythm sometimes in songs, very cool. Great player, and major influence on many great players since. I actually saw him once. But it was a short set as he was an opening act. I think about 1972, at the Forum in L.A. he opened for Grand Funk! Inside Lookin' Out, I'm Your Captain, Closer to Home, etc., peak Farner/Funk. I thought he was great, but most of the people in general were not that into it. Dummies.

Anyway, thanks for the great tunes... off for some Hooker now... hmmm that doesn't sound right... Wink

version of "In the Mood". That song was my parents "thing", and then, mine.
