Variation released in 1962 by Freddie King (1962) as Hide Away - 1962

Referred to on some releases as Hideaway

Sometimes writing credits are just Freddie King.

In his autobiography, I Am The Blues, Willie Dixon claims that Hide Away was written in the 50s by Irving Spencer but was not named until Freddie King recorded it with Dixon in 1961. The name came from the name of the club where Freddie King was playing.
