Though blues master Freddie King's best material was recorded in the 1960s, his early-'70s tenure at Shelter Records yielded some powerful Texas blues that showed King still in full command of his blazing six-string prowess and deep-down, soulful tenor. THE SHELTER RECORDS YEARS covers much of the same material as the double-disc KING OF THE BLUES, but is--at 18-tracks--a more streamlined set that features his best work for the period. The hard-driving "Going Down," for example, is one of his most searing tracks, and gestures to King's down-home roots and to the rock guitarists he influenced.
King is equally impressive on string-bending downtempo blues ("Five Long Years"), funk-inflected grooves ("Me and My Guitar"), and John Lee Hooker-inspired boogies ("Guitar Boogie"). In general, the material here is edgier than his early work, with King's guitar attack sounding particularly fierce and relentless. Sadly, King died in 1976 at a mere 42 years old, depriving the world of what might have been many more years of recording and performance. Fortunately, compilations like THE SHELTER RECORDS YEARS preserve his legacy. Digitally remastered sound and comprehensive liner notes add to the package.
