Good Feelin'

It only seems fitting to open with the album which inspired me for the title of this web log.

This album, by the legendary guitar phenomena T-Bone Walker, earned him a Grammy in 1970. For years I tried to get hold of the album, but couldn't find it anywhere. Until I can across it in a record shop in Boston in 1997. Imaging my frustration when I found out that it was recorded in Paris and the album was distributed by a German company. And I had to go all the way the U.S. to get it!

The album is recorded in 1968 in Paris during a tour by T-bone. The album opens with some great piano playing and T-bone saying: "My name is T-bone Walker. That means I play nothing but the blues!" The booklet, which came with the album, stated that the piano was played by.....T-Bone himself. First I thought that this was an error. Not only didn't I know that T-bone was such a gifted piano player, but I knew that Memphis Slim lived and worked In Paris at the time the album was recorded (1968). So I thought it must have been Memphis Slim. Only much later I came across some more recordings where T-bone played the piano. So yes.......it was T-bone himself. Don't be alarmed about the sudden change between track 1 and track 2. Believe me, this is the way the album was released.
On this album you'll find a slightly less jazzy T-bone playing a less West-Coast kind of blues. Definitely worth listening to!
