Do The Chicken Dance!

little_freddie_kingLittle Freddie King: You Don't Know What I Know (Fat Possum)

More kick-ass juke-joint blues from the folks at Fat Possum!

Yeah, Little Freddie King is 65-years old but sings with the glee of a teenager - try not to grin while "Chicken Dance" is playing. Not that King doesn't sing about some pretty adult situations, such as the fact that he has a bullet lodged next to his spine from when his wife shot him during a quarrel. He also brilliantly steals a Hendrix riff to construct "Crack Head Joe." This is good fun with some sharp guitar, plus a nifty remix of "Chicken Dance" that actually works. - Steve Holtje
