T-Bone Walker: Every Day I Have The Blues (CD)

(ACE Records) 9 Tracks (39:50) - 

When producer Bob Thiele launched Flying Dutchman Records in 1969, he also introduced two other imprints to give his new company depth and breadth: Amsterdam for pop material and Bluestime to concentrate on the developing blues boom. Thiele had been in charge of ABC’s Bluesway label, where he had made records with many vintage blues artists. He opened Bluestime with albums by three of those performers: “The Real Boss Of The Blues” by Joe Turner, “Sweet Giant Of The Blues” by Otis Spann and “Every Day I Have The Blues” by T-Bone Walker.

T-Bone Walker was a pioneer of the electric guitar. Born in 1910, his earliest musical experiences were in Dallas, which led to him making a record as Oak Cliff T-Bone in 1929. Moving to Los Angeles in the mid-30s, he became one of the earliest champions of the electric guitar. His records for Capitol, Rhumboogie and Black & White in the 1940s provided the template for players such as B.B. King and his ‘Stormy Monday Blues’ became a much-covered standard.

His hits dried up in the mid-50s when the blues began to be considered old-fashioned, but Walker became one of the first players to be regarded as a serious musician. “T-Bone Blues”, his 1959 LP for Atlantic, was one of the first to be aimed at an intellectual white audience. In the 1960s he became a fixture on the concert circuit and continued to make LPs. “Everyday I Have The Blues”, reissued here with two live bonus live recordings, is one of his best but at the same time one of the least-known. The backing musicians provided by Thiele allowed Walker plenty of space to solo and to sing. The title track is a sharp version of the blues standard and ‘For B.B. King’, a tribute to his disciple, shows off some amazing guitar skills.

T-Bone Walker

Who's the father of the electric blues? Very simple: T-Bone Walker. Of course, a handful of blues-based guitarists had already experimented with amplifying their instruments before T-Bone's appearance, but he wrote the vocabulary that everyone who followed him eagerly adopted. In short, T-Bone was the source. The elegant Mean Old World, recorded in Hollywood on July 20, 1942 with pianist Freddie Slack, bassist Jud DeNaut and drummer Dave Coleman as accompanists, was the real starting point for Walker, even though he had made his first record years earlier.

Born on 28 May 1910 in Linden, Texas, Aaron Thibeaux (T-Bone was a corruption of his middle name) Walker learned the blues from his mother, who played the guitar, and a stepfather who plucked the bass in the Dallas String Band. The famous blind Lemon Jefferson was another major influence - as a teenager Walker led him through Dallas, where Jefferson performed as a street musician. Before concentrating on his guitar playing, Walker acquired extraordinary agility as a professional dancer.

Walker made his first recordings at the end of 1929, a 78 for Columbia under the name Oak Cliff T-Bone (Oak Cliff was the district of Dallas where he grew up). At that time, of course, Walker only played acoustic guitar, even when he performed as a duo with another future pioneer of the electric guitar, Charlie Christian. T-Bone moved out to Los Angeles in the mid-1930s, where he continued to dance and concentrate on his full baritone singing - he was only a singer on his next record appearance with bandleader Les Hite in 1940.

Initially inspired by Les Paul, T-Bone began to try out the newly launched electric guitar models at that time. He decided on a Gibson ES-250 and soon developed the unusual technique of holding his guitar flat in front of him like a plate while he pecked grandiose melody single-tone lines and wonderful, voluminous niche chords. Walker's brilliant innovations prepared the field for most of the following, influential guitarists of post-war blues, from Gatemouth Brown and B.B. King to Albert Collins and Johnny Copeland. His acrobatic shows also impressed his fans.

"Man, he did the splits while he was playing the guitar behind his head," Collins raved. "It was incredible!"
