The version of the song on the Jerry Garcia box set All Good Things is a previously unreleased outtake from the 1975 Reflections recording sessions.

Also played by the Allman Brothers Band, with Garcia sitting in, on December 31, 1973.

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 at the time. A variation was released in 1962 by Freddie King (1962) as Hide Away - 1962
