Freddie King: I’m Tore Down

Freddie King singing Tore Down in Dallas, Texas in 1966. King died ten years later at the age of 42. He died 35 years ago but his music lives on.

The Very Best of Freddy King album which I own and have recorded into my MP3 player.

Freddy King also went by the name of Freddie King explaining why some of his albums have him as Freddy and other as Freddie. The album above is one of my favorite albums and even though my new MP3 player has limited space I made sure to download the whole album into the player.

The album includes some instrumentals along with the tracks that have him singing. His instrmentals are so good that you don’t care that he isn’t singing on them.

You can listen to clips from all 25 songs on the album:

Freddie King at his best singing Have You Ever Loved a Woman with one of the best guitar riffs I have ever heard before he starts singing.
