Donny Hathaway as arranger, King Curtis as producer, and a rhythm section that included Jerry Jemmott and Cornell Dupree. The groove tempos are not too fast and not too slow; in other words just right. The horn arrangements are sublime and Freddie's performance is top-notch. My Feeling For The Blues is a one-of-a-kind blues album by the great Freddie King.

The first two songs, "Yonder Wall" and "The Stumble" set the tone for the whole recording. In fact, the album's opener is a laid back rendition of Elmore James's "Yonder Wall". King Curtis lays a great, soulful horn and Freddie's guitar sounds more upfront than on his previous LP.

From there, My Feeling for the Blues listens as a tribute to the Giants of the Blues genre: King tackles B.B. King's "I Wonder Why" and "Woke Up This Morning", T-Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday", Jimmy Reed's "You Don't Have to Go" and Eddie 'Guitar Slim' Jones classic "The Things I Used to Do", while upping the pace with a frantic, instrumental take on Ray Charles "What'd I Say".

One of the top best blues albums was getting harder to find, but is now available on vinyl again. Do yourself a favour and make sure you grab this one!
