INCLUDES 4 BONUS TRACKS

This quintessential reissue includes one of Walker’s finest albums: T-Bone Sings the Blues (Imperial, 1959). This masterpiece features Walker’s 1950-1952 sides for the Imperial label. Highlights include “You Don’t Love Me,” “Evil Hearted Woman,” “Travelin’ Blues,” and Walker’s 1950 recording of “Strollin’ with Bones” – an uptempo 12-bar jump-blues that begins with T-Bone’s spikey, uptown electric blues licks sandwiched between a swinging two-bar, unison horn-section figure in calland- response fashion.

This sensational release has been remastered and packaged in this very special collector’s edition, which also includes 4 bonus tracks from the same period.
