Freddie King (September 3, 1934 – December 28, 1976) was an American blues guitarist and singer. He recorded several hits for Federal Records in the early 1960s. His soulful and powerful voice and distinctive guitar style inspired many musicians, particularly guitarists. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

“Hide Away”

"Hide Away" or "Hideaway" is a blues guitar instrumental that has become "a standard for countless blues and rock musicians performing today". First recorded in 1960 by Freddie King, 

the song became an R& B and pop chart hit. Since then, it has been interpreted and recorded by numerous blues and other musicians and has been recognized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Grammy Hall of Fame.

"You’ve Got to Love Her With a Feeling"

"You've Got to Love Her with a Feeling", or "Love with a Feeling" as it was originally titled, is a blues song first recorded by Tampa Red in 1938. Numerous blues artists have interpreted and

 recorded the song, making it a blues standard. When Freddie King adapted it in 1961, it became his first single to appear in the record charts.

"The Stumble"

"The Stumble" is a blues guitar instrumental composed and recorded by American blues artist Freddie King, for his 1961 album Let's Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King. It was

 released as the fourth single from this album in 1962. It is considered a blues classic and follows in a string of popular instrumentals recorded by King in the early 1960s, including "Hide Away", "San-Ho-Zay", and "Sen-Sa-Shun".

"I'm Tore Down"

         "I'm Tore Down" or "Tore Down" is a blues song first recorded in 1961 by Freddie King (who was then known as "Freddy" King) for Federal Records. Pianist Sonny Thompson, who played on several early King songs, is credited as the songwriter. When Federal released it as single in 1961, with the instrumental "Sen-Sa-Shun" as the B-side, it reached number five on Billboard's Hot R&B Sides singles chart. Federal parent company King Records included the song on King's first album Freddy King Sings (1961). In 1971, King recorded a longer 

version for his Shelter Records album Getting Ready... As a popular tune with guitarists, it has been recorded by many blues and other musicians. Freddie King's brother and bandmate, Benny Turner, also recorded this song (with special guest Otis Clay) and it appears on his 2017 release My Brother's Blues - a tribute to Freddie.
