"Of all the people I've played with, the most stimulating in an onstage situation was Freddie King. He could be pretty mean but subtle with it. He'd make you feel at home and then tear you to pieces... He taught me just about everything I needed to know... when and when not to make a stand... when and when not to show your hand. . . and most important of all... how to make love to a guitar." – Eric Clapton

Review: This 46-minute video features blues legend Freddie King and his band performing six songs and an instrumental called "Blues Band Shuffle" in an outdoor setting in front of a huge, mostly young, enthralled audience. King sings a few of the more well-known songs from his repertoire, including "Big Legged Woman," "Ain't Nobody's Business," "Key to the Highway," "Have You Ever Loved a Woman," and "Goin' Down," the closing number. King is an imposing figure on a stage, and his guitar work is often stinging. The camera work doesn't always meet the highest professional standards, but this would still be a worthy addition to any blues video collection. – Dirty Linen
