Review

The Blues Came from Texas brings together various tracks recorded by such influential Lone Star State artists as T-Bone Walker, Albert Collins, and Big Mama Thornton. Unfortunately, most of the tracks were recorded late in the artists' careers and do not represent them well. Despite being a living legend at the time this version of "Baby Please Don't Go" must have been recorded, Walker sounds tired and lacks any of the creative fire that marked his iconic late-'40s sides. Unless you're a completist, those looking for a nice single-disc introduction to Texas blues would be well-advised to search out the recordings these artists made in their prime. ~ Matt Collar
