Full Show Friday: Freddie King Live in Europe 73 & 74

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Freddie King!

This month RTBE will pay homage to The Blues with 5 special shows for every Friday in October. So get sad, get happy eat your greens and get the blues.
The man with the killer guitar face, Freddie King is our Full Show Friday this week as we still got the blues.  Out of all the blues greats we probably know the least from Freddie King as he died at the young age of 42, but god damn do we love to hear him play and sing, what a treat. Having both Chicago and Texas blues styles is a perfect combo as the weeping/fiery guitar can intermingle gorgeously. 

Simply put, one listen to him playing and singing "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" puts Eric Clapton's version to shame.
