INCLUDES 2 BONUS TRACKS

This quintessential LP edition includes one of Walker's finest albums, the sensational T-Bone Blues, which was originally released by Atlantic Records in 1960, and has been long unavailable on vinyl. For these recordings Atlantic took some chances with Walker, dispatching him to Chicago for a 1955 date with Junior Wells and Jimmy Rogers which resulted in the great “Play on Little Girl.” Even better were the 1956-1957 L.A. dates that produced the scalding instrumental “Two Bones and a Pick” (it finds T-Bone dueling it out with nephew R.S. Rankin and jazzman Barney Kessel). But if there's one T-Bone Walker solo you have to know, it's his 12-bar chorus from “Stormy Monday Blues” (also know as “Call It Stormy Monday”). The song was a cornerstone for B.B. King, and the great blues singer Jimmy Witherspoon called it “a national treasure.”

In addition to the original album, this Vinyl Lovers collector's edition also includes 2 bonus tracks from the same period: “Teen Age Baby” and “Bye, Bye Baby.” All of these songs give a solid and revealing portrait of Walker's versatility as well as his rightful place in the blues pantheon.
