Freddie King:
Messing With The Kid
Going Down

Recorded "live" at the Antibes-Juan Les Pins Jazz Festival, Antibes, France, July 24, 1974.

One of the things I love about Freddie is that he always has a great band with him. I don't know the personnel for this show, but suffice to say that the drummer is riding high on these jams. I also like that you can kind of hear that this was recorded outdoors, probably near the sea. It sounds windy.

Very enjoyable... a lot of drums in the mix. I think all bluesmen with the last name of 'King' were more than adept at putting together fine backing bands.
