T-Bone Walker Box Set

T-Bone Walker- The Original Source

Album Review:
"This is, especially for the money, an excellent overview of the career of Aaron Thibeaux Walker (aka T-Bone Walker). Beginning at the beginning in 1929, this set travels all the way through the '40s (where he developed his style as the electric blues genre), through 1951 on labels from Columbia to Capitol to Black and White and others in between. This set's 90 cuts paint the most intricate portrait of his signature sound as it developed to become one of the models for the blues of B.B. and Freddie King, and virtually every electric guitarist after him. The sound is great and the price is irresistible."

Probably you would get more comments if there was a more visible comment button. Took me a while (but then my vision is bad.)

Check out the interview with some of the locals.

Vis Warner Williams – I’ve never heard him talk much. Basically, if there are two people to be his audience, he plays. I once heard someone ask if he knew any North Carolina tunes from the 50s. He must have played a dozen tunes, most of which I had never heard before.
