One Of The Last Bluesmen Of His Generation: The unstoppable Little Freddie King (aka Dr. Bones) has certainly paid his dues. The past 82 years he has survived three shootings, stabbings, a near fatal bike accident that pressed his spine, a stomach ulcer doctors believed would kill him, an accidental electrocution, the hurricane that ripped New Orleans apart in 2005, and now a pandemic. On his voice you can feel the trials of life. The music inside is the dose of Blues Medicine that kept him going. King is a country-style blues musician, links to an era when live music poured from the back-of-town nightclubs that were ubiquitous throughout New Orleans' African-American neighborhoods, fostering a musical subculture of downhome Mississippi blues that developed from the ground up in New Orleans. Little Freddie King is an artist who is among the last of his kind. This album proves it.
