This old split from who knows when came out on Pickwick, and it rocks. The Sonny side opens up with some wild country whoopin’ from the legendary blind harmonica man on “Whoopin’ The Blues”. A simple number celebrating the pure joy of being alive, you know it comes in handy in these trying times we live in. “All Alone Blues” is another highlight, a story told countless times that won’t ever lose its power, because the fact is we just don’t change that much. Minimal backing of the underproduced, battered-old-acoustic-and-cardboard-box kind serves the tunes just right. Out of the juke joint and into the night club: the T-Bone side’s all swell urban crooning and slick guitarring from the moustached Texas-born slinger. “No Worry Blues” sports an intriguing background horn pattern that seduces yet seems slightly at odds with the melody. “Don’t Give Me The Runaround” (again, the aforementioned perennial story) is a smart vocal jazz number for the hipsters. Finally, Walker even gets all husky on “I’m Waiting For Your Call”, after which it’s about time to climb in the automobile and ride home, ‘cause the sun’s just coming up.
