"For a brief two-year period, during which the best of his recorded output would come — including this album — Freddie would be shepherded by a legendary saxophonist who made him one of the first signings to an Atlantic subsidiary he helped select artists and record for. King Curtis would serve as producer and arranger of Freddie’s greatest recordings, including his finest album-length statement, 'My Feeling for the Blues.' It wouldn’t be any more of a hit than his other studio albums, but again, Freddie is about a sound, and the sound Freddie conjures up on 'My Feeling' would echo out across blues and rock for generations to come. Record sales are a box score that don’t tell you the finer details of the game. The game Freddie King played here was eternal."
