Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Recorded the same month as Woodstock for producer Bob Thiele's new label. Thiele had been the main producer for ABC's Impulse and Bluesway labels, but left after a row with the head of the company (related with some relish in Thiele's autobiography) and took some of the artists with him to start Flying Dutchman for jazz (Leon Thomas, Lonnie Liston Smith and then-new find Gil Scott-Heron) and BluesTime for the blues (T-Bone, Otis Spann). It didn't last long though.
T-Bone Walker was still playing and singing well, however on this recording Thiele went even further into rock than on the Bluesway albums and to be honest it's not good. There was a crack band of L.A. session musos on hand to do exactly what the producer wanted - including Tom Scott who had recorded 2 LPs on Impulse - but they were more at home with pop, rock, jingles, movie themes - anything but the straight swinging blues which was T-Bone's forte.
Scott has an electronic octave divider (the Varitone, I think - Sonny Stitt and Clark Terry both made albums featuring it) on his sax, Louie Shelton's un-bluesy distorted guitar takes precedence over T-Bone's and the funk beats dominate. "T-Bone Blues Special" is pretty awful; when T-Bone gets a solo, Shelton plays loud and completely inappropriate distorted lead behind him which just sounds wrong....though we can be sure the producer thought it was great at the time as it was new and different.
2 badly recorded live tracks have been added to this CD issue but it's too little too late and the album is still well under 40 minutes.
T-Bone's Bluesway albums are better, and the Texas recordings from 1966-67 ('T-Bone Standard Time') are better still than those. Unfortunately this album went in the wrong direction in a misguided attempt to once more update his sound.

This was bought as a birthday gift and the recipient thoroughly enjoyed listening, especially the live recording which he hadn't heard for many a year.
