FREDDY KING - NOW I'VE GOT A WOMAN


Absolutely sublime & cookin' r&b from this brilliant Texan-transported-to-Chicago guitarist and singer.

Freddy's family moved to Chicago in 1950 when Freddy was 16, and he spent many hours combing the blues clubs and hearing Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and all the other Chicago greats. He soaked it all in and when he began recording, laid out his own style which was very urban and took strong influences from the danceable r&b grooves which crossed over at a time when blues was waning in popularity.

from 1964...

I read your blog of June 20, 2009.

I wrote "Now I've Got a Woman" in 1963. Freddy recorded it in 1964 for Federal. The song has been covered by several artists ..the last one being John Mayall in 2007.
I've got several original 45's from the original pressing.
