A helping of Texas blues
J. Carroll | Island Heights,NJ | 05/26/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"T-Bone Walker, (B.B. King's idol) is well-represented here with recordings from 1966 and 1970 combined on this Crazy Cajun collection. A real mixed bag with traditional Texas style blues, Chicago sounds, and even a little jazz and funk thrown in (with an occasionally overly dominant organ sound)some of these songs find T-Bone at top form and others present a great no longer at the top of his game, vocally or musically. Some good performances are found throughout ("T-Bone's Way," "Got to Cross the Deep Blue Sea," "Left Home When I was a Kid") but the collection is uneven in recording quality. Not bad as an intro to the work of this seminal blues great, with more than half the recordings his own compositions and an informative booklet, but definitive recordings will be found elsewhere."
