Recording information: Recorded for King/Federal in 1961. The other musicians were session players for the label rather than Freddie’s Band. One of my favorites. It seems like it could just roll forever and I could listen that long!
Today we are happy to present some original blues artwork from Allan Mainous. These are copyright images which can’t be used without his permission. Thanks Allan!!
I am originally from Detroit , and grew up in the same neighborhood as Little Willie John, Dennis Coffey, and Stevie Wonder. After school every day my friends and I would sneak down into my basement to listen to my prize passion: a Jimmy Reed LP. The Blues “gets into you’re Soul”. So when I started painting , I was compelled to express myself and all the feelings that The Blues can bring up. Some of my images have been used at The Children’s Museum in Boston. As a learning aid teaching children about listening to music and then transfer those feelings to visual art. My paintings and prints are displayed in many Blues venues all over the country. I love the Blues and hope that people can see the emotions behind my “Music Art” .
