Real Gone Music artist: Freddie King - The Complete King Federal Singles - New Release Review

I just received The Complete King Federal Singles, the first-ever compilation devoted to Freddie King's King-Federal singles, released by Real Gone Music. This is an incredibly comprehensive package including 55 tracks of Freddie's best work. I have been a fan of Freddie King's for such a long time and it's great to have all of this great music on 2 CD's. King had his own signature style that was uniquely his own. Passing at an early age Freddie didn't have the advantage of time like the other two renown kings of the blues, Albert and BB. Freddie's catalog includes a wide variety of musical takes on the blues like swing on See See Baby with the honking sax and Come On; It's Easy, Child with a R&B but Tex Mex styling; Bossa Nova styling shown on The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist (cool instrumental); deep blues on Look, Ma. I'm Crying (Incredible); Elmore James style like Takin' Care of Business; Tbone Walker style of I'm On My Way To Atlanta or (The Welfare) Turns It's Back On You (most of you haven't heard this should); surf music? yup ... Surf Monkey (cool 60's instrumental), Texas Oil and Heads Up; R&B Louisiana style like Meet Me At The Station, Sittin' On The Boat Dock and If You Believe; jump blues like Driving Sideways; fast shuffle like High Rise (instrumental of course); classic R&B like If You Have It; holiday blues with Christmas Tears and I Hear Jingle Bells; pop tracks like the President Twist; You Can't Hide and instrumental Just Pickin' but also great vocal tracks that demonstrate that Freddie isn't just a guitar player like the spectacular duet with Lulu reed on Let Your Love Watch Over Me. Of course this package includes all of Freddie's best known classics like You've Got To Love Her With A Feeling; Have You Ever Loved A Woman; Hideway; It's Too Bad Things Are Going So Tough; San Ho Zay; The Stumble; Side Tracked; I'm Tore Down; Sen-Sa-Shun; Someday, After A While; She Put The Whammy On Me; Full Time Love; Use What You've Got and You've Got Me Licked which are all amazing. And don't get me wrong, this is no padded cd with the greatest hits and a bunch of fluff. This is packed full of great music wall to wall!  The package includes 8 pages of great liner notes by Bill Dahl and a number of cool photos. This is a package that was begging to be done and a terrific tribute to a terrific performer! This is a must have.

Real Gone Music's February: Short Month, Big Release Schedule


February 26 Releases Include Titles from Fanny, Freddie King, Rod McKuen, Cat Mother & the All Night Newsboys, the Hello People and Grateful Dead

Los Angeles, California-Real Gone Music's February releases, due out on the 26th of the month, continue to cut a wide swath through the various genres of popular music, with entries ranging from to folk cabaret to electric blues to chick rock to even mime rock! At the front of the line is the first-ever standalone CD release of the debut album from Fanny, the first-ever all-female group signed to a major label, and a thundering, 54-track double-CD set from blues guitar legend Freddie King featuring all of his King and Federal label singles, both A and B-sides. And Real Gone is, by exclusive arrangement with the artist himself, releasing what are arguably the two signature albums of poet-singer-songwriter-actor Rod McKuen's career with copious bonus tracks.

The focus shifts firmly to rock for the label's other February releases, featuring the debut album by Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys, which was co-produced by none other than Jimi Hendrix. The unique "mime-rock" of The Hello People, who later collaborated with Todd Rundgren, sees its first-ever reissue of any kind with the release of their album Fusion. And Real Gone continues its dance through the Grateful Dead's Dick's Picks catalog of rare live recordings with another first-time-ever retail release of Dick's Picks Vol. 25.

It's hard to overstate the importance of Fanny's self-titled 1970 debut album. For the first time, a group of women (sisters June and Jean Millington, Alice De Buhr and Nickey Barclay) wrote and sang their own songs, played their own instruments and, perhaps most importantly, rocked just as hard as any male band out there. And, as the first all female band signed to a major label (Reprise) and with superstar producer Richard Perry at the board, these four women seemed poised for stardom.  But, without a reference point with which to review them, the rock press was less than kind, often dismissing them as a novelty act. Fanny would have to become that reference point, and so they did for the generations of female rockers to come after them, from Joan Jett to Girlschool to Courtney Love and beyond. They were truly the Godmothers of Chick Rock. Now, Real Gone Music is proud to reissue, for the first time on a stand-alone CD, the self-titled debut release from Fanny, complete with the original gatefold album art and sporting new liner notes from none other than June Millington with contributions from Alice De Buhr and Jean Millington, whose tales will take you inside the studio and out to the front lines of rock's feminist makeover. Grrl power starts here!

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 Freddie 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. The Complete King Federal Singles rounds 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 complete as concentrated a dose of blues guitar greatness as you will ever find.

Poet, writer, performer, songwriter, singer, producer, actor-Rod McKuen was the true Renaissance man of the '60s generation. However, despite having notched a number of charting albums, almost all of McKuen's recorded work remains out of print. Now, by special arrangement with the artist himself, Real Gone Music is releasing two signature albums from Rod McKuen's career, complete with a bounty of bonus tracks from his private archive, personally annotated and remastered under his supervision. Recorded on his 36th birthday on April 29, 1969, the double live album Sold Out At Carnegie Hall was the highest-charting (double platinum) release of Rod McKuen's career, and exposed a whole new audience to the man's multifaceted talent. This Real Gone reissue of this landmark live recording adds an unreleased track, marking the most complete version of this legendary concert that has ever been released, and also offers 13 tracks from his triumphant, platinum-selling Back to Carnegie Hall album, recorded on his 40th birthday in 1973. And McKuen's 1967 release Listen to the Warm, which was based on his poetry book of the same name-then the bestselling poetry book of all time-was his first charting album. Our Real Gone reissue presents over a dozen bonus tracks-all never before available in the U.S.-that in effect create an unreleased Listen To The Warm Volume Two.

Though the 1969 debut release from Cat Mother and the All Night Newsboys was co-produced by none other than Jimi Hendrix (they were long-time friends, the band opened for the Experience on tour, and had the misfortune of sharing the same manager, Mike Jeffrey), Cat Mother was far more than a footnote to a superstar's career. Not only did The Street Giveth...and the Street Taketh Away score a Top 40 hit with "Good Old Rock 'N Roll," but it's also a marvelously eclectic affair beloved by record collectors of every stripe-just do a quick Google search-with elements of folk, country and late '60s riff rock alongside the hit's tongue-in-cheek revivalism. This album's been briefly reissued on CD twice before and commands huge sums online; it's not JUST for Hendrix completists (though they will want it, too).

There was a lot more to The Hello People than just whiteface. Their roots actually trace back to the father of French mime, Etienne Decroux. During the '60s, Decroux taught painting to a group of musicians, who learned to paint so quickly that Decroux reasoned that musicians could also learn mime and apply it in some new way to create a new form. Thus inspired, the manager of the musicians Decroux had taught, Lou Futterman, then put together The Hello People, who went on to appear on The Tonight Show and The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, tour with Todd Rundgren during the '70s, and release four albums for Philips and ABC-Dunhill during the late '60s and early '70s. Fusion, their second (1968) album for Philips, is easily their best; it features "Anthem," whose stark, antiwar lyrics ("So I'm going to prison for what I believe/I'm going to prison so I can be free") penned by band songwriter W.S. "Sonny" Tongue (who had been incarcerated for resisting the draft) led to its being banned in a number of radio markets. Our Real Gone reissue includes the original gatefold art and adds new liner notes; it's the first album from this one-of-a-kind group ever released on CD.

The latest august addition to Real Gone's reissues of Grateful Dead live shows, Dick's Picks 25-May 10, 1978 New Haven, CT May 11, 1978 Springfield, MA hails from an extended East Coast run in the Spring of 1978, offering a pair of Dead shows that, with the loving touch of Bear and Betty Cantor-Jackson at the controls, rank as one of the most beautifully recorded entries in the Dick's Picks series. Both concerts-which appear here minus just two and three songs, respectively-find the group in exceptionally lyrical form on ballads like "Loser," "Stella Blue," "Looks Like Rain" and "They Love Each Other." Also not to be missed is a superlative, slowed-down version of "Friend of the Devil" and the rare performance of Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" as an encore (the band only played it about a dozen times live). Full of diamonds for Deadheads.

Have You Ever Loved A Woman - Freddie King

Freddie was born in Gilmer Texas on September 3 1934 with the given name of Freddy King to Ella May King and J.T. Christian. My father's mother told him that her grandfather ( who was a full-blooded Choctaw Indian) prophesied to her that she would have a child that will stir the souls of millions and inspire and influence generations. My grandmother and her brother Leon played the guitar. Freddie's mother recognized early her first born interest in music. She and her brother Leon began teaching him to play rural country blues at the age of six. His early music heroes were Sam Lightnin Hopkins (who he credits his proficiency of the down home thumb-finger picken style) and Louis Jordan (the jump blues saxophonist). He told me that he would play Jordan's record over and over again until he could match his horn, note for note. This discipline would have a major impact on his phrasing.

His first guitar was a silvertone acoustic. His most prized guitar at that time was his Roy Roger acoustic. In a interview years later he recalled going to the general store to order it. The store owner asked him if his mother knew he was trying to order a guitar on her store account. Freddie replied " no". The store owner told him to get permission. His mother said "no". She told him, "if you want a new guitar you will have to work for it." He stated that he picked cotton just long enough to earn the money to purchase a Roger's guitar.

By 1949 two of Freddie's uncles, Felix and Willie King had already moved to Chicago. They were earning good money working in the steel mill. Ella now married to Ben Turner saw opportunity for her family in Chicago. Freddie's father J.T. didn't want Freddie to go to Chicago, He wanted Freddie to finish high school and go to college in Texas like some of his family. J.T.'s sister Melissa was a teacher at the local black school. Ella and J.T. agreed to let Freddie finish high school. The family left for Chicago in the fall of 1949.
Freddie and his family moved to Chicago in 1949. This was a dream come true. He was now living on the southside of chicago, the playground of the post -war blues greats Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, T-Bone Walker, Elmore James, Sonny Boy Williamson and others. At age16 Freddie would sneak in to the clubs (on double dares from his friends) to listen and watch these blues greats perform. One night he bet his friends that, not only would he sneak into the club, but he would also sit in with the house band and play his box guitar. Freddie won the bet. After sitting in with the band, the club owner realized how young Freddie was. He ordered the bouncers to escort him out of the club. Howlin Wolf intervened by telling the club owner" the kid is with me. Howlin was impressed by the way Freddie picked the acoustic guitar. Howlin told Freddie" young man you pick that guitar like a old soul"..."The lord sure enough put you here to play the blues" This would be the beginning of a great friendship. Howlin took young Freddie under his wing and taught him how to take care of himself in the streets of Chicago. Along with Muddy Water and his side men EddieTaylor, Jimmy Rogers, Robert Lockwood Jr.and Little Walter they accepted him into their inner circle. These guys were the cream of the crop the best that Chicago blues had to offer. Freddie started hanging out and jamming with Muddy's sidemen. My father credits Eddie Taylor with teaching him how to use the metal index finger pick and a plastic thumbpick verses the flat pick. My father really respected these guys talents as musicians and grew to understand their true worth.

By 1952 Freddie had met and married a Texas girl, Jessie Burnett. She proved to be the foundation and maturity he needed. She also would be the inspiration and co-contributor to some of his compositions. He worked in the steel mill during the day and worked gigs at night. He would ocassionally work as a sideman in recording sessions. He and his running buddies Jimmy Rogers and Eddie Taylor were young, fresh and eager to venture out in search of something new, something different. The southside of Chicago served up its blues with the big blues band sound that included a rhythm section, horns, a piano,and sometimes a harp. The westside of Chicago with its small taverns, eagerly embraced these young blues maverick and their blues sound that consisted of a electrifying lead guitarist who usually doubled as the lead vocalist. a bassman, and drummer. Freddie jumped at the chance that the westside travens offered. So he along with two other young guys, guitarist Jimmy Lee Robinson and drummer Sonny Scott formed his first band,"The Every Hour Blues Boys".

In 1953 Freddie cut several sides for the Parrot Label. He continued to do session recordings whenever possible.

It was not until 1956 that Freddie recorded a 45 with a local label El-Bee. Side A was a duet with Margaret Whitfield "Country Boy" and side B was a fast tempo blues, " Thats What You Think". His friend Robert Lockwood Jr. added guitar licks. Chess Records was one of the biggest blues labels at that time. Their home office and recording studio was located in Chicago. Many big name Chicago blues artists were signed, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf and Little Walter, just to name a few. My father auditioned several times with no success. They stated that he sounded vocally like B.B. King. He would later say that Chess rejection was a blessing in disguise, because it forced him to develope his own vocal style.

It is now 1957 and Freddie is performing with bluesmen like blues pianist Memphis Slim ( who left the Chicago scene to find success in France.) and blues guitarist Magic Sam Maghett( a good friend and neighbor). As a favor Freddie did some uncredited session work for Magic Sam who at the time was signed to the Cobra Label. 1958 Uncle Sam came calling on the blues community. My father was not drafted because he had no arch support (flat feet). Magic Sam was not so lucky he was drafted.

1959 Freddie is rejected once more by Chess Records, but he meets Sonny Thompson a pianist who happens to be a contract artist and front man for King/Federal label. Sonny recognized something unique about Freddie's blues style.

In 1960 Freddie signed with Syd Nathan's King /Federal Label. Syd Nathan was a total control freak, a smart hard nose businessman who at times could be fairer than most record label owners of this period. His contract artists range from Blues, Freddie King ,Albert King,Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Memphis Slim, John Lee Hooker and others, Country & Western, Ferlin Huskey, The Stanley Brothers, Hank Penny, Grandpa Jones and others, R&B, Hank Ballad, Bill Doggett, James Brown, Little Willie John, Little Esther Phillips, The Platters, The Ink Spots, Chantals, Royals,and others, Jazz, Nina Simone, Carmen McRae, Errol Garner, Bobby Scott, Bobby Troup and others, Gospel artists and International artists. All artists recorded at one location in Cincinnati Ohio, at the Brewster locations. Records were mastered, pressed,stored, and distributed from this location. The album covers were designed and printed from the same location. Yes Syd Nathan was a control freak. Freddie's time with King label was bitter sweet. He was happy to be under contract, but he did not like being control and manipulated artistically. Nathan would suggest ideas for songs that Freddie disagreed with. Nathan wanted Freddie to cover some of his country and western artist tunes. Freddie had always been a fan of C&W but Nathan and Freddie could never agree on which tune to record. Then one day Nathan over heard a studio jam session that consisted of some country and western musicians and Freddie doing a blues swing version of" Remmington Ride". Nathan quickly had Freddie nail that tune to vinyl. The collaboration of Freddie King and Sonny Thompson on instrumentals such as "The Stumble," "Low Tide," "Wash Out," "Sidetracked," "HeadsUp," "Onion Rings," "The Sad Nite Owl," and "Hide Away", contains some of the most brilliant and most awsome guitar licks in blues history. Instrumentals like these would soon wake up the young British music community to a new groove " Blues Rock".

Many of Freddie's songwriting credits under the King label contract were shared with Sonny Thompson. They would have marathon sessions of 16 hrs and more. The first 45 release: side A " Have You Ever Loved A Woman", side B "Hide Away". Both sides were big hits on the R&B charts. The surprise was the Hide Away release. It became a crossover hit on the Pop chart reaching # 29. This was a first, a blues artist registering a hit on the Pop chart. No other blues artist had accomplished this before. Young whites were digging Freddie's blues style. Nathan quickly capitalized on it. He insisting that Freddie and Sonny concentrate on instrumentals. Freddie sold more albums during this period (1961-63) than any other blues artist including B.B. King.
It is now 1962 and Freddie was still riding the crest of success from his King recordings. Freddie King was hotter than molten steel. But with success comes the down side. Freddie Loved the Chicago night life. Gambling til dawn in the backroom of Mike's cleaners and getting into mischief with his cronies.My mother was now a housewife with six children. She didn't like what the Chicago nightlife was doing to her husband, it provided to many distractions. The fall of 1962 she left her husband and she and her six children moved to Dallas Texas. After she arrived in Dallas she called Syd Nathan demanding that he send her royalties that she knew her husband was entitled to. She stated that she needed it for her children and herself to start a new life. Nathan proved to be a few notches above the other record company owners of this period. He sent my mother two thousand dollars. My mother place a down payment on a house. It did not take my father long to realize that his family was not returning to Chicago. Freddie left his beloved Chicago and joined his wife and children in Dallas in the spring of 1963. Freddie's move to Texas proved to be a blessing in disguise. Freddie began fine tuning his vocals he evolved from a B.B. king singing style to his own more soulful sound. Music was changing and so was he. He was experimenting with and incorporating different types of music. Freddie's contract with King ended in 1966. Gone were the big name revues and national tour packages, but Freddie continued to draw pack houses where ever he performed black and white clubs. He got an opportunity in 1966 to do a series of appearances on a R&B program called "The!!!Beat". The Beat had this 60's "Mod"look that featured a house band lead by Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, artists like Otis Redding, Etta James, Little Milton, Carla Thomas, and Louis Jordan. to name a few appeared weekly. These appearance caught the attention of Atlantic Records front man King Curtis.

In 1968 Freddie signed a contract with Cotillion Records a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. Two albums were released:

Freddie king is a Blues master

My Feeling for the Blues

Both releases were soulful and funky and showcased his singing talents,both albums had moderate success. Freddie was disappointed in the lack of success in the two releases. His spirits was soon lifted with the success of his first overseas tour in 1968. He was originally booked for a month and it was extended to three. He was amazed by his popularity in England, a new generation of young white musicians like Eric Clapton,MickTaylor, and others were trying to emulate Freddie King. In 1969 Freddie hires a new manager Jack Calmes. Jack is young, white and part of the "counter culture" that has discovered the blues. Jack helped orchestrate Freddie's career into high gear with the 1969 Texas Pop Festival,there he shared billing with Led Zeppelin, Sly and the family stone,Ten years After, B.B. King, among others, " Led Zeppelin's guys were standing there watching him perform with their mouth open" Jack said. Calmes secured a contract deal for Freddie with Leon Russell's new label Shelter Records . Leon had been a fan of Freddie's sizzling guitar style for years. Leon was now creating the Oklahoma blues culture with the start up of his own label. Leon Russell record label included Joe Cocker and The Nitty Gitty Dirt Band. Leon spared no expense the sessions were top shelf he flew the studio crew to Chicago and recorded the first album "Getting Ready" at the old Chess Records studio. Freddie was allowed to showcase his showmanship, Leon wanted the listening audience to experience the brilliance and raw essences of Freddie King. Shelter was the perfect springbroad for Freddie's style of blues, hard driving and in your face. This collaboration put Freddie into the mainstream of the white blues /rock explosion. The release of "Getting Ready" produced Freddie's signature blues/rock hit "Going Down".

Tore Down - Freddie King

Freddie King (September 3, 1934 – December 28, 1976), thought to have been born as Frederick Christian, originally recording as Freddy King, and nicknamed "the Texas Cannonball", was an influential African-American blues guitarist and singer. He is often mentioned as one of "the Three Kings" of electric blues guitar, along with Albert King and B.B. King, as well as the youngest of the three.

Freddie King based his guitar style on Texas and Chicago influences and was one of the first bluesmen to have a multi-racial backing band onstage with him at live performances. He is best known for singles such as "Have You Ever Loved A Woman" (1960) and his Top 40 hit "Hide Away" (1961). He is also known for albums such as the early, instrumental-packed Let's Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King (1961) and the later album Burglar (1974), which displayed King's mature versatility as both player and singer in a range of blues and funk styles.

King had a twenty-year recording career and became established as an influential guitarist with hits for Federal Records, in the early 1960s. He inspired American musicians such as Jerry Garcia, Stevie Ray Vaughan and his brother Jimmie Vaughan and others. His influence was also felt in UK, through recordings by blues revivalists such as Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Chicken Shack.

Hideaway - Freddie King

"Hide Away" or "Hideaway" is a blues guitar instrumental that has become "a standard for countless blues and rock musicians performing today". First recorded in 1960 by Freddie King, the song became an R&B and pop chart hit. Since then, it has been interpreted and recorded by numerous blues and other musicians. King's original "Hide Away" has been acknowledged by the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Although "Hide Away" is credited to Freddie King and Sonny Thompson (pianist and A&R man at Federal Records) in an interview, Freddie King said that "Hide Away" came from a Hound Dog Taylor song called "Taylor's Boogie". Shakey Jake Harris, a harmonica player who played with Magic Sam, said "At that time me and Sam was playing at Mel's Hideaway [Mel's Hide Away Lounge, a Chicago blues club where many of the blues musicians of the era played]. That's where Freddie King's 'Hide Away' comes from. We stole it from Hound Dog Taylor, and Freddie King stole it from us. It used to be our theme song. It was Magic Sam's theme song. And so Freddie King would come in and jam with us until he learnt that song". Magic Sam recorded a variation of the song, "Do The Camel Walk", in 1961 (Chief 7026).

In his autobiography, Willie Dixon suggests that he named the song "Hideaway". He went on to say that "the guy who really wrote 'Hideaway' was this guy called Irving Spencer, the one I used to play with back on Madison Street, that was on Koko Taylor's first first recording. He was playing that 'Hideaway' for years before anybody paid any attention to it". Dixon also claimed that Freddie King had recorded "Hideaway" earlier for Cobra Records, but none of his Cobra material was ever issued.
