AllMusic Review by

T-Bone Walker's elegant and fluid guitar lines helped define the roll of the electric guitar in the modern recording era, and it's as a guitar player that the blues community generally remembers him. But his smooth yet smoky vocals were every bit as classy as his guitar playing, as this random but interesting set of tracks clearly shows. Highlights here include the fine "Mean Old World," the immortal "Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just as Bad)" from 1947, "Blue Mood," "Love Is Just a Gamble" and 1952's "Railroad Station Blues." Standing at the junction of blues, jazz and R&B, Walker brought a little something to all these genres, and with "Stormy Monday," gave the world a classic.
