Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Blues great plus five bonus tracks. 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 blues-rockers as Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. This quintessential release includes two of Walker's finest albums: T-BONE BLUES (1960) and SINGS THE BLUES (1959). for the former LP Atlantic took some chances with Walker, dispatching him to Chicago for a 1955 date with Junior Wells and Jimmy Rogers that produced 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' (which finds T-Bone dueling it out with nephew R.S. Rankin and jazzman Barney Kessel). The latter record featured Walker's 1950-1952 sides for the Imperial label. Both albums have been remastered and packaged together in this very special collector's edition, which also includes 5 bonus tracks from the same period.
