Freddy King was a blazing, masterful blues guitarist, a gorgeous, heartbreaking singer, and a huge influence on Eric Clapton, Jimmy Reed and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and many other performers. He made his original and greatest recordings for Cincinnati's King/Federal labels between 1960 and 1966. One of the things that sets this Texas-born, Chicago-trained master apart from other great blues singer-guitarists of the post-war period is his use of the electric guitar, not only to punctuate his singing with answering riffs and solo choruses, but to take the spotlight on its own in a large body of infectious, driving, distinctive, and brilliant instrumental tunes. 'Bossa Nova And Blues' is a beautiful example of his style in the '60 and a must for fans of modern blues. This edition contains 6 bonus tracks taken from his second instrumental album 'Let's Hide Away And Dance Away'.
