T. Bone BluesT-Bone Walker's masterpiece T-Bone Blues on Atlantic Records is often cited as not only one of his finest achievements, but also one of the blues genre's most important crowned jewels. This 1959 classic showcases the late blues master's legendary handling of the electric guitar and his unequalled ability to powerfully sing some of the most revered classics in modern blues history.
This definitive classic recording features this multi-talented artist's finest tunes like T-Bone Shuffle, Papa Ain't Salty No More and of course the iconic Stormy Monday Blues. Over the years, many acclaimed artists have gone back to this album for inspiration. Classic blues rockers like Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter, B.B. King, John Mayall, The Allman Brothers, Boz Scaggs and Doug Sahm have all interpreted several songs from this classic album. Out of print for over forty years in the vinyl format, Friday Music is thrilled to announce the first time 180g gram audiophile vinyl release of T-Bone Walker's landmark masterpiece T-Bone Blues.
Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (T-Bone Walker/Muddy Waters/Johnny Winter/Boz Scaggs) from the original Atlantic Records monophonic tapes, this audiophile LP truly excites the listener, as each note bent and every vocal laid down by T-Bone Walker are truly captured in this historic recording.
Friday Music has corrected the original running order of this wonderful blues release, the first time since 1959, as well as used the original artwork elements and the stunning liner notes written by the late Ralph J. Gleason. As always, Friday Music includes a poly bag for the album cover and a poly line sleeve to protect your 180g vinyl album.1. Two Bones and a Pick

T. Bone Walker Sings The Blues (Pure Pleasure)T-Bone Walker is one of the all time greats, an innovator and significant influence on just about every blues guitarist who followed. But his musical legacy is also incredibly enjoyable, full of humour as well as invention.
A man who played the blues with flair, sophistication, technical brilliance and a sense of humour, Aaron Thibeaux Walker was born in Linden, Cass County, of Cherokee Indian descent. His trademark was the cool, telling West Coast licks which emanated from his guitar - there have been few who have done the job better.

About Pure Pleasure
At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.
During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.
A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.
We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.
We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.
To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.1. Strollin' With Bones

Record stores are popping up again everywhere. New vinyl pressing plants are opening in America, Europe and Asia. Young vinyl enthusiasts - both male and female! - are swarming to record fairs looking for old and new records to build their collection. When Passion for Vinyl Part 1 came out, there was still some doubt about the comeback of vinyl. Wasn't it all just a hype? Now, five years later, even the biggest sceptic can't deny it: vinyl is back and it's here to stay!
In light of all these new and exciting developments, a follow-up to the successful and well-received first volume of the Passion for Vinyl book (four stars in Record Collector magazine) is more than viable. DJs, musicians, engineers, designers, shop managers, record label CEOs and collectors like Dischord's Ian MacKaye, Norton's Miriam Linna, singer-songwriter Ryley Walker, musician and producer T Bone Burnett, Abbey Road's half-speed maestro Miles Showell, DJs Sven VÄth and Ellen Allien, designer John Kosh and many others tell about the records that changed their lives, their love for vinyl and the impact its resurgence has had on them. Passion for Vinyl Part 2 also shows how analogue recording techniques are making a comeback in the recording and mastering studios.
In the last few years, countless music lovers have (re)discovered that nothing beats listening to a vinyl record on a proper stereo set. It makes the listener connect with the music like nothing else.
This book is a tribute to that unique experience.

Alright Again!One of the most satisfying contemporary Brown [albums] of all for the discerning blues fan. Nothing but swinging, horn-abetted blues adorn this album, as Gate pays tribute to an influence and a protege by covering T-Bone Walker's Strollin' with Bones and Albert Collins's Frosty. Brown's jauntily revives Junior Parker's I Feel Alright Again and Percy Mayfield's Give Me Time to Explain, while his own numbers -- a funky Dollar Got the Blues, the luxurious blues Sometimes I Slip -- are truly brilliant.

This relaxed, rather informal August 15, 1963, session is one of Jimmy Witherspoon's rarest and was the only time that the great Arkansas shouter recorded with T-Bone Walker, the Texas-born father of electric blues guitar. In an unusual appearance as a sideman, Walker contributed his trademark brittle-toned solos, obbligatos, and "from the five" intros to a set of tunes that included such standards as "Money's Gettin' Cheaper" (a 'Spoon favorite since he borrowed it from Charles Brown in the late Forties), "How Long Blues," "Good Rockin' Tonight," "Kansas City," and "Don't Let Go." And adding further Texas seasoning was San Antonio saxophonist Clifford Scott, best known for his distinctive solos on "Honky Tonk" and other Bill Doggett hits, who not only played tenor (as the original credits indicate), but blew searing alto on "Grab Me a Freight" and flute on 'Spoon's reading of the haunting title track, a blues ballad previously associated with both Jimmy Rushing and Walker. With Clifford Scott, Bert Kendrix, T-Bone Walker, Clarence Jones and Wayne Robertson.

My Feeling For The BluesImport
Donny Hathaway as arranger, King Curtis as producer, and a rhythm section that included Jerry Jemmott and Cornell Dupree. The groove tempos are not too fast and not too slow; in other words just right. The horn arrangements are sublime and Freddie's performance is top-notch. My Feeling For The Blues is a one-of-a-kind blues album by the great Freddie King.
The first two songs, Yonder Wall and The Stumble set the tone for the whole recording. In fact, the album's opener is a laid-back rendition of Elmore James's Yonder Wall. King Curtis lays a great, soulful horn and Freddie's guitar sounds more upfront than on his previous LP.
From there, My Feeling for the Blues listens as a tribute to the Giants of the Blues genre: King tackles B.B. King's I Wonder Why and Woke Up This Morning, T-Bone Walker's Stormy Monday, Jimmy Reed's You Don't Have to Go and Eddie 'Guitar Slim' Jones classic The Things I Used to Do, while upping the pace with a frantic, instrumental take on Ray Charles What'd I Say.
One of the top best blues albums was getting harder to find, but is now available on vinyl again. Do yourself a favour and make sure you grab this one!1. Yonder Wall

In A Heavy BagInducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1993, Lowell Fulson (he also recorded for business reasons as Lowell Fullsom and Lowell Fulsom). The Tulsa, Oklahoma native was a big-voiced blues-guitarist and songwriter in the West Coast Blues tradition. Along with T-Bone Walker, Fulson was one of the most important figures in West Coast blues. In a Heavy Bag is the original '69 Jewel Records album which has Lowell dishing out incredible, deep Muscle Shoals blues-funk!1. Look at You Baby
