Guitarist Freddie King rode to fame in the early '60s with a spate of catchy instrumentals which became instant bandstand fodder for fellow bluesmen and white rock bands alike. Employing a more down-home (thumb and finger picks) approach to the B.B. King single-string style of playing, King enjoyed success on a variety of different record labels.Furthermore, he was one of the first bluesmen to employ a racially integrated group on stage behind him. Freddie King's Texas Cannonball was initially released on Leon Russell's Shelter Records in the fall of 1970. Freddie King went on to record three albums for Shelter in the early '70s, all of which sold well. In addition to respectable sales, his concerts were also quite popular with both blues and rock audiences. Texas Cannonball is similar to his first Shelter outing (Getting Ready), but with more of a rock feel. That's due as much to the material as the production. Besides covering tunes by Jimmy Rogers, Howlin' Wolf and Elmore James, King tackles compositions by Leon Russell and, more unexpectedly, Bill Withers, Isaac Hayes/David Porter and John Fogerty (whose "Lodi" is reworked into "Lowdown in Lodi")
