Texas Blues 3 / Various
Here in Vol. 3 are 20 more examples of Texas Blues from the late forties and early fifties. Texas had been amongst first states to provide a distinctive sound and style in the 1920's with the Country Blues. Again in the late Forties came a new sound often led by guitarists influenced by T- Bone Walker playing in front of a sax led bands. On this volume we can hear more of Goree Carter one of T-Bones most devout disciples, he plays on 8 of these tracks. Also present are musicians like Henry Hayes and Lonnie Lyons who played on many sessions, as well as some of the major R&B stars of the day who recorded in Houston whilst on nation wide tours.
