  • The Texas Cannonball Was a Huge Influence on Such British Guitar Gods as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Peter Green & Mick Taylor 

Rolling Stone ranked him the #15 greatest guitarist of all time. His sharp treble tone, hooky melodic licks and innovative fingerpicking style—using metal banjo picks on electric guitar—were a profound influence on such British guitar gods as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. And his live performances were so incendiary, so unstoppable—and his build so imposing—that he was nicknamed “The Texas Cannonball.” Yet to date, no collection has focused on the original single sides Freddy King cut for the King and Federal labels in the ‘60s, the blistering tracks that made his reputation and continue to be the centerpiece of his recorded legacy. Now, Real Gone Music has rounded up all 54 of those original single sides and carefully packed them on to two CDs for about 155 minutes of pure blues guitar heat, featuring such hits as “Hideaway,” “Lonesome Whistle Blues,” “San-Ho-Zay!” and “I’m Tore Down.” Notes by Freddie King expert Bill Dahl, photos and pristine mastering by Jurgen Crasser complete as concentrated a dose of blues guitar greatness as you will ever find.
