Freddie King was an original, the most gifted electric blues guitarist of the post-Chicago Southside blues sound. In contrast to his peers he was the consummate musician who was also a composer and a singer. King had an awesome stage presence and no one walked away disappointed from his larger than life performances. Originally released in 1971, Getting Ready features 10 tracks including "Same Old Blues" and "Dust My Broom." King is accompanied by a stellar band that includes Leon Russell, Donald "Duck" Dunn, and Don Preston, among others.
