1 - LITTLE FREDDIE KING - ABSOLUTELY THE BEST - (CD) 
MADEWRIGHT


Absolutely The Best is nothing but a fascinating and raucous array of fun songs from the last truly unselfconscious blues moaners. The songs emphasize the wild good times and the karmic payback of surviving the rough-and-tumble life of a bluesman. Little Freddie King is a national treasure at 79 and the last of the New Orleans blues musician still playing in the U.S and abroad. Kings music preserves the country-style delta blues as tradition and embodies a major artistic shift of the twentieth century: the rural-to-urban blues migration. His cheerfulness in the face of adversity, his commitment to community after Katrina and his boundless energy onstage are reasons why New Orleans and the World loves His Royal Highness. This compilation includes tracks from his releases in this millennium including his album on Fat Possum Records.

2 - LITTLE FREDDIE KING - CHASING THA BLUES - (CD) 
MADEWRIGHT


"Little Freddie Kings life has always been hard. Hell, not long ago he was blown out of New Orleans by Katrina and he went missing for a time. Its always been this tough and it always will be. Chasing Tha Blues takes you on a rough ride through Freddies life. Its all here, including what is the toughest, grittiest blues anthem youve ever heard - Born Dead. Born Dead puts you in a high row in the cotton fields. A few simple lines and its clear that these same fields were for hanging. No matter whether its at home at BJs in NOLA, on the road in New York, or overseas, the vocals are made of grit and tears and the guitar licks cant be written down. The power is inthe spaces between the notes." - Scott M. Bock, Living Blues (USA), Juke (UK), Block (Netherlands)

3 - LITTLE FREDDIE KING - GOTTA WALK WITH DA KING - (CD) 
MADEWRIGHT


Riding his bike through Hurricance Katrina waters to safety, Freddie doesnt just play the blues; he is the BLUES youve heard about and thought had been washed away. With the same band thats backed him for over a decade, this is rough and raw music while being laid back and easy at the same time. Though he haslived in New Orleans since his teens, Kings playing and singing are unmistakably rooted in his native Mississippi Delta soil. He is eclectic but gritty and his thumb is always his pick, giving his guitar playing a powerful, thick sound. Despite his fierce reputation as "rough and tumble", back in the early days, he marvels at having become a blues elder

6 - LITTLE FREDDIE KING - MESSIN' AROUND THA LIVING ROOM - (CD) 
MADEWRIGHT


Introduced onstage as: "The world renowned, hard to kill, pistol-packin, chicken-pickin, string- pullin, show stoppin, freight train hoppin, gamecock walkin, master of electricity, king of gutbucket blues, connoisseur of women, His Royal Highness", Little Freddie King is a key figure in the New Orleanss music scene and brings unrivaled enthusiasm, passion and style to his performances. As the blues evolve, artists with Mr. Kings life experience and exposure to earlier generations of this music are slowly disappearing. Freddie hasbecome one of New Orleanss great cultural ambassadors as he has extended his music and travel beyond the City to a National and Global audience. His style is rooted in a unique combination of Mississippi country and New Orleans urban flavor to make a gumbo of Blues that unleashes his pride in both regions.

7 - LITTLE FREDDIE KING - YOU MAKE MY NIGHT - (CD) 
MADEWRIGHT


"New Orleans musical tradition is usually steeped in jazz, R&B, and funk, which is why Little Freddie King is such a unique local treasure - he delivers nothing but authentic Mississippi Delta juke-joint blues, pure and uncut, presented with the kind of laidback stagger and sometimes frightening shaggy dog tales you only find in The City That Care Forgot. This live set showcases an unschooled master at work: his guitar leads are taut and springy, his vocals booming in the best field holler tradition, his spare three piece backing band tipping to catch him when his pawn shop guitar wanders off the beaten path. This is the pure gutbucket blues from a man who's lived the life, a fascinating and raucous document of one of the last truly unselfconscious blues moaners"..Offbeat Magazine

TRACKLISTING: 01. Hobo Blues 02. Can't Do Nothin' Babe 03. Tough Frog To Swallow 04. Bus Station Blues 05. Baby Please Don't Go 06. Chicken Dance 07. Big Boss Man 08. Wang Dang Dooble 09. Standin' At Yo Door 10. Sing Sang Sung
