Roy Gaines is the greatest living blues guitarist that you probably don't know anything about. He also possesses one of the most magnificent blues voices around. Born in Houston in 1937, Roy started playing the guitar as a teenager and soon developed a reputation as an instrumental prodigy. By 14, he was actually being invited on stage to play with the legendary T-Bone Walker during the latter's live gigs in Houston and became known as T-Bone Jr. By his early 20s, Roy was playing and recording with Roy Milton's band in LA, but returned to Houston to join the Duke/Peacock blues label as a full time session guitarist on such seminal blues recordings as Bobby Bland's "It's My Life Baby" and Junior Parker's "Driving Me Mad."
The focus of this album is on the music and spirit of the late and very great T-Bone Walker. For this album Groove Note has chosen to focus on the classic tunes and styles from the period of the '40s and '50s. The LP includes an acoustic version of "Stormy Monday" and "House of Gold" as a bonus 45 RPM supercut. Produced by Joe Harley and recorded at Ocean Way Studios in Sherman Oaks, Calif. by engineer Mike Ross. All mastering was done by Bernie Grundman. All LPs are plated and pressed at RTI, in California.
