Orleans Records artist: Little Freddie King - Fried Rice & Chicken - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Fried Rice & Chicken, from Little Freddie King and its a lot of fun. Opening with Willie Woods' super groove, Cleos Back, Freddie Martin aka Little Freddie King lays down his primitive, real deal blues. King has a loose but smart guitar style on this instrumental, backed by Earl Stanley on bass, Kerry Brown on drums and Crazy Rick Allen on organ. Very cool. Slow blues number, Mean Little Woman features King on vocal and this is where the rubber meets the road. Not only does King have meaty raw chops, but his vocals are authentic and unpolished. Excellent. The Great Chinese is drums laden with cool guitar rhythms. Ray Charles' What'd I Say is spirited with vibrant key work by Allen and  tight guitar and vocal by King. Very nice. Sing Sang Sung is a great rumble with Wacko Wade Wright on drums, Anthony Anderson on bass Bobby Lewis DiTullio on harp and of course Kings own spontaneous riffs on guitar. Very nice. Freddie King's Hide Away is up next and LF King shows his fluid riffs in King style. Not smooth like Freddie...not supposed to be. Excellent! Wrapping the release is Bad Chicken with it's Bo Diddley beat, harp by DiTullio, tom tom by Wright, bass by Anderson and lead chikin pickin  (and chicken call) by King. This is a really cool release and a lot of fun for everyone.
