Eric Clapton says it’s this album cover that inspired him to buy a Les Paul for his stint in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
Freddie/Freddy King didn’t just spur on EC (who covered King’s Hideaway on the 'Beano' album): Peter Green was also a King aficanado, covering King’s The Stumble on Mayall’s A Hard Road album of ’67.
King himself was a taut, melodic player. His riffs were memorable while he could wail with the best of his peers. After BB and Albert, he’s the most-underrated of electric blues’ ‘three Kings’. He died aged just 42, but did much to inspire the Brit-blues boom of the '60s.
