AllMusic Review by

Another package of T-Bone's Black & White and early Capitol sides from 1942 to 1947 aboard. This features a generous 22 sides, starting with 1942's "I Got a Break" with Freddy Slack and finishing up with 1947's "Vacation Blues." In between are loads of that classic guitar and smooth vocals by one of the all-time greats of the blues, including "They Call It Stormy Monday" and "T-Bone Shuffle." Hard to say no to a package like this.
