My Feeling for the Blues
Beloved by blues aficionados as “The Texas Cannonball,” Freddie King had his biggest hits on the fabled King Records label during the 1960s but fans are quick to point out that his end-of-the-decade stint on Atlantic produced work that was just as memorable, such as the dynamic MY FEELING FOR THE BLUES. Produced by sax great King Curtis and featuring horn arrangements by Donny Hathaway, the set frames King's amazing axework perfectly, but the real revelation on these 11 tracks is how soulful Freddie was as a singer. The underrated MY FEELING FOR THE BLUES was released 50 years ago this month, and from from the opening “Yonder Wall” to the closing title track, you'll feel the blues too!
