Album artwork for Goes Surfin' by Freddie King

Syd Nathan, impresario of Cincinnati s King Records, was the epitome of the old-school indie record label owner. Always hustling, Nathan regularly beat the odds to release hit after hit in multiple genres. He d try anything if he thought it might work, or more precisely, if he thought it would make money. After issuing the hit album Let s Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King, Syd sensed untapped potential in the LP. Inspired by the West Coast surf scene, he conjured a little marketing magic...GET A NEW COVER WITH SOME SURF KIDS! THROW SOME CROWD NOISE OVER TRACKS SO IT SOUNDS LIVE ! CALL IT...ERR...FREDDY KING GOES SURFIN ! PRESS IT AND HAVE IT ON THE SHELVES BY NEXT WEEK!!!!!!! While it may not have happened EXACTLY like that, King Records did release the album containing the very same songs (in precisely the same running order) as Let s Hide Away...with crowd noise dubbed over the music. And it WORKED! Fellow Lone Star blues maven Billy F. Gibbons later picked it as one of his Top Ten Favorite Blues Albums of All Time. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI) and sourced from the original King/Federal analog tapes, Sundazed is proud to present Freddy King Goes Surfin in magnificent mono fidelity. Cowabunga!
