Part of the Crucial Blues series from Alligator Records of Chicago, "Crucial Texas Blues", released in 2004, features a dozen tracks from a wealth of blues talent, and is well worthy of a place in any blues lover's collection. From the big band style of Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown's "She Walks Right In" to the slow and mournful "Too Many Dirty Dishes", with its novel portrayal of a man's discovery of his woman's infidelity, there is a song for every mood and emotion. Floyd Dixon rocks with "450 Pound Woman", as does Delbert McClinton with "Standing on Shaky Ground"; while Marcia Ball oozes pathos with "I'm coming Down With the Blues", but my favourite of them all is C.J.Chenier's portrayal of loneliness and a broken heart in "Richest Man". The feeling he puts into unique and intelligent lyrics gets right inside, and the line "If tear drops were diamonds from an African mine, If heartaches were silver my whole life would shine" just stuck immediately, and have inspired me to work out a piano backing to sing along to. All in all, brilliant music.

Must Have Series From Alligator 22 Mar. 2004
By Mark Maj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Alligator Records hit it right on the head when they named this series, "crucial". Yes this series is a crucial must have for any Blues fan, especially if you're a new comer to the Blues sound. I myself had a limited knowledge when I purchased this CD, but this CD changed that quickly. This CD starts off with a cornball version of a swing tune called "She Walks Right In", but about half way through the tune Clarence Gatemouth Brown throws in an awesome guitar solo that foretells the rest of the CD. This CD introduces the listener to one great Blues artist after another and most have that awesome brass section that makes great blues performances seem even better. Notables on this CD include Albert Collins, Robert Cray, and Johnny Copeland, whom all perform together, Long John Hunter, W.C. Clark, Floyd Dixon and Delbert McClinton. I strongly recommend this CD and all the Crucial Blues CDs not only to new comers but all blues fans.

GOOD music & many WRONG track performers as of 2008-10-20 21 Oct. 2008
By R. Lee Dailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
howdy y'all,

this is another very enjoyable sampler.

it's also another one that amazon lists many tracks by WRITER instead of by performer. [*sigh ...*] here's the alligator records page for the _correct_ performers ...

take care,

I bought Texas Crucial Blues because of the reviews. Clearly, the folks who rated this album 4 or 5 stars are fans. The selections on it are ok, but this is not an album that I will be playing often - just doesn't appeal to me.
Outstanding! 23 Sept. 2012

This is an excellent selection of great blues songs by incredible performers. I bought solo albuns by several blues musicians who I did not know until I listen to this CD. Highly recommended.
