2007 CD release.
By the end of 1968, some six years before he died, T-Bone Walker's name had already gone down in history. But although history had taken the artist into it's Hall of Fame, it hadn't done much o feed him, and Walker found himself strangely torn between the status of living legend and life of a traveling minstrel.
At a time when Black America was forsaking it's past in favor of soul music, Europe was providing asylum for blues musicians and T-Bone was no exception. Solicited by the powers that be at French Polydor, he recorded this collection whose critical and commercial success literally turned his career around, giving him new legitimacy and throwing a new light onto his storybook career.
