Blues guitarist and singer Freddie King was born and raised near Gilmer, Texas, spent his final years in Dallas, and his nickname was the Texas Cannonball. But between 1950 and 1963 he lived and worked in Chicago, and it’s this period upon which his massive reputation rests. The point is underlined in Bill Dahl’s liner notes for the recent The Complete King Federal Singles (Real Gone Music), a sprawling double CD that contains most of King’s greatest output, including his ubiquitous, eternal instrumental “Hide Away.”
