The legendary T-Bone Walker is a fundamental source of the modern urban style of playing and singing the blues. His single-string solos influenced giants like B.B. King and such important blues-rockers as Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. This quintessential release includes two of Walker’s finest albums for the Imperial label: I Get So Weary (1961) and Singing the Blues (1960). Both LPs consist of selections of previous Imperial singles, recorded between 1950 and 1954, with accompaniment by the outstanding Dave Bartholomew and his band (featuring impressive sidemen like saxophonist Lee Allen and bassist Frank Fields), as well as by such great musicians as Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, Maxwell Davis and Billy Hadnott. These two superb albums have been remastered and packaged together in this very special collector’s edition, which also includes 4 bonus tracks from the same period.
