This is a excellent introduction to Freddie King. The album showcases both his smooth vocals and his amazing guitar playing. A must have for every guitarist.

One of the best blues albums ever! I could listen to this CD for hours and hours. "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" blows Clapton's version out of the water. This is a great album to get aquainted with Freddie King.

I have this recording in double LP format. I break this record out about two or three times a year and once I get it on the turntable, it tends to stay there for a week or more. This is a must have for any blues fan.

This is blues guitar at its best. Jimmie Vaughn once said something along the lines of "If you couldn't play hide-away, you couldn't play at any club in texas". Besides Hide Away, this album has other killer blues tracks like Remington Ride and Sen-sa-shun.
