AllMusic Review by

Texas blues guitar legend Aaron Thibeault "T-Bone" Walker is the hero of this 14th volume in the Charly Blues Masterworks series. These 16 historic recordings made for the Capitol and Black & White labels during the years 1942-1948 demonstrate exactly how and why T-Bone influenced generations of singers and electric guitarists. Given the fact that his discography is packed to the gills with serviceable retrospectives, Charly's T-Bone sampler is both sensibly selected and pleasantly affordable. Perfect music for chili preparation, barbecues, picnics, and for drinking beer out of long-neck bottles while the car is up on cinder blocks and the engine's all took apart.
