Rare for a reason
Zack N Hall | Perry, OK United States | 12/20/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"T. Bone sounds burnt out to me on this one. I'm a huge T. Bone Walker fan but this album was done very late in his career and doesn't have the same flavor as his earlier work. The style is too modern. Although, the version of Stormy Monday isn't bad, you can't beat the orginal versions of most of these songs. This album sounds like it was done by a washed out lounge singer. As you can already guess, I would not have purchased this CD if I had listened to it first. Spend your money wisely and purchase some earlie T. Bone."
I Love This CD!

"A friend of mine had this record back when we were in College, and I've been looking for it for years to come out on CD. I ordered it and was not disappointed - it was just as good as I remembered. There are a lot of gems on this CD, good recording quality, and great musicians. Although my review isn't as scholarly as the previous, I think anyone who likes blues, especially electric blues with horns and electric guitars, will love this album."
One of these "take away on a desert island" CD

"I love Blues, I love Jazz, I instantly felt in love with the record when it came out and was very happy to get it in CD format.
The last song (Stormy Monday) with the incredible intro of T-Bone talking about himself is a masterpiece. It justifies in itself the purchase.
That said, I understand that purists can find it too modern and too jazzy for their taste."
