CD Reviews

It's that country and that ghetto
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Swamp Boogie is a lot like King himself unassuming, not terribly ambitious , yet Soulful and Playful. Interesting tunes include the snarling "Mean Litttle Woman" and the evocative "Kinky Cotton Fields" Both belong on a Movie sound track. I like the goofy Bo-Diddleyish instrucmental called "The Great Chinese" for reason I'd love to know. "Cat Squall Blues" is complex, delta acoustic fingerpicking that isn't taught so much as absorbed.
All the transcription books in the world can't capture that kind of playing; It's a good thing LFK put it down for us."
A little bit of everything with Little Freddie King
(3 out of 5 stars)

"From funky electric instrumentals to spare acoustic blues with harmonica, this album spans the genre.Little Freddie King is a competent guitarist in his own right, but his style and sound are very different from his namesake, Freddie King.Although Track 5 is a cover of Freddie King's instrumental "San Ho Zay," it is one on the low points of the album, as it is marred by a very "un B-3" sounding synthesthesizer.Yet overall, the album is a good listen. Highlights include the Jimmy Reed flavored "I Used to Be Down" and Little Freddie's original "I'm Gonna Haul Right Off and Cry."Three out of five for this one."
