I must have been almost 16 or 17. I was a stringed instrument nut by afterwards. I couldn't comedy much, but I was a fan; a big fan of guitars. Any music on TV was good-naturedly screened to see if any academic stringed instrument players were concerned. I was into beat music, but I had plenty concerned of the form to cognise that furthermost of the fill up I adored to perceive to had evolved from the folksong.
One of the pre-requisites of my folksong childhood was a belatedly hours of darkness system in the UK, called the Old Grey Whistle Test, I am uncomfortable to say that though most of the music (I now know) was great, I turned my olfactory organ up at maximum of it. I could basically going on for bear a keyboard or piano, but copper-base alloy instruments were peak noticeably for pansies. You couldn't get more separate from stone and rattle than a cornet or a trombone!

One night, I saw that the OGWT roster had soul titled Freddie King on. I had heard of him, because I had heard of maximum culture. I may have only just skinned finished my time-honoured education, but at my Rock n Roll studies, I was clearly an A order apprentice.
So, Freddie King was on offer, and I material I had to hand over the man an transmission. So I tuned in. A big man our Freddie. He was introduced, and after a quick pause, started cookery near an device digit named Boogie Funk.
I was awe stricken.Post ads:

I loved it. This guy was something else.
Over the months (and geezerhood) that followed, I searched all register cache I knew for Freddie King albums, desire out this tune; Boogie Funk. And could I find it? No. I bought respective albums of Freddie's, and was ever disappointed because it was not on any of them. I design I had misheard the baptize of the track, so I looked for anything that possibly will have been that track, and was e'er foiled. Freddie King, sadly, became a dissatisfaction.
Roll fore complete 30 old age.
Freddie King is no longest beside us. He died a few epigrammatic time of life after the TV appearance I saw. But I have ne'er unnoticed that one one-member acting out.
I was in a auditory communication depot in Bristol (near where I inhabit), looking for a Christmas contribution for my woman. This is a bit of a service for me now. I go and spunky the crowds at the Mall, sounding for thing for my, wife, and end up in a music storeroom. It happens all period of time. As chance would have it, I had recovered something for my recovered half, and was righteous superficial at the shelves to see if at hand was anything from my youth, once I came upon the DVD clause. I similar the DVD's more than the CD's to be frank. Live performances of artists long straying to me are one of the shining lights of the new age.
So I was reading through the DVD's and what did I see? Yes, you've guessed, several compendium of the OGWT. I wasn't even reasoning of Freddie King, but on one of the DVD's, within was Freddie, programmed in the acknowledgement for, yes, Boogie Funk. I all but wet myself. Do you of all time get moments of well-preserved elation and anticipation? I did in the hair salon. Needless to say, I bought the DVD, and rush habitation.
Freddie King's show was about specifically how I remembered it. The pleasure was the same, the joie de vivre was the self. I had unconcealed a frame to my youth. Freddie contend a Gibson ES 335 stringed instrument (I deliberation) and contend a pivotal folk song blues. Just for me.
Freddie, I am diffident that I lost you for all those old age. You were lost, but never forgotten. And now you are back, I am yours once again for ever; a fan again!
