    Liner Note Author: Neil Slaven.
    Recording information: 05/1926-??/1957.
    This is the fourth title in Fantastic Voyage's Let Me Tell You About the Blues series, a series of three-CD sets compiled and annotated by Neil Slaven that trace the evolution of the blues in key American cities and regions. This time out the focus is on Texas (previous volumes in the series have covered Memphis, New York, and Chicago). "The blues came to Texas loping like a mule," Blind Lemon Jefferson sang on his first recording in 1926, and there's no denying that Texas put its own spin on the genre. This set is a marvelous history of Texas blues, starting with Jefferson and proceeding through artists as distinctive as T-Bone Walker, Lightnin' Hopkins, Gatemouth Brown, Smokey Hogg, and Frankie Lee Sims, among many others. ~ Steve Leggett
