Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this 1998 release. Roy Gaines is the greatest living blues guitarist that you probably don't know anything about. Not only is Mr. Gaines a sizzling blues guitarist, he also possesses one of the most magnificent blues voices around. The real tragedy is that until very recently this supremely talented musician was almost forgotten by blues fans in the U.S. Born in Houston in 1937, Roy started playing the guitar as a teenager and soon developed a reputation as an instrumental prodigy. The focus of this album is on the music and spirit of the late and very great T-Bone Walker, Roy's earliest mentor and inspiration as a guitar player. It focuses on the classic tunes and styles from the period of the 40s and 50s. Produced by Joe Harley and recorded at Ocean Way Studios in Sherman Oaks, CA. by engineer Mike Ross. All mastering was done from the original master tapes by Bernie Grundman. All LPs are plated and pressed by RTI, CA.
