AllMusic Review by

T-Bone Walker was a stunning guitarist who played the blues with a jazzman's soul, and while Walker wasn't a flashy singer, he got the job done with enough conviction that you can feel the country dust settling in behind his urbane delivery, and when he cut loose a little on guitar, the sparks flew with elegant tension. Among the highlights here are his classic recordings of "Call It Stormy Monday" and "Mean Old World."
