Legendary blues guitarist T-Bone Walker was not only one of the most influential musicians to rise up from the fertile Texas blues scene, but his impact on blues guitar worldwide cannot be understated. T-Bone Walker is the source of single-note, horn-type blues soloing. In addition, his phrasing was so expressive of the blues sensibility that it has come to define the style of every electric blues and rock guitarist who has followed in his dancing footsteps.

This edition includes one of Walker’s finest albums, the sensational T-Bone Blues, originally released by Atlantic Records in 1960. For these recordings Atlantic took some chances with Walker, dispatching him to Chicagofor 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” and “Stormy Monday Blues” (also known as “Call It Stormy Monday”), with its superb 12-bar chorus.
