The best of the Orleans years recorded in New Orleans 1994 & 1998. Track one, "Cleo's Back" was featured in the 2011 Tom Hanks movie "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" which was nominated for a Best Picture of the Year. Track 2, "Mean Little Woman" was featured in the Hob series "Treme."

From Little Freddie King's first thumb-strummed rhythm to his deep pocket leads... Subtle yet deep-reaching, King locks into the pusle in that irressistible fashion it seems musicians only learn from spending years in New Orleans. King was born in McComb, Mississippi in 1940. His father was a blues guitarist named Jesse James Martin... Moved to New Orleans at age 17... is an anual attraction at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage festival and has toured Europe with Bo Diddley and John Lee Hooker.

It's the same sound that fired the work of Muddy Waters, Jimmy Read and Freddie's cousin, the great Lightin' Hopkins... this is blues... Mississippi style.

King's fantastically sleazy pawn shop leads drip all over songs... everything he wants to tell you comes out in that sound with titles like "Bad Chicken"... sign post on the road to wino hell and blues heaven.
