The best that the Lone Star state has had to offer over a 60 year period is right here, from Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Match Box Blues" (1927 ) to Stevie Ray Vaughn's live version of "Flood Down In Texas (Texas Flood)" from 1986. This compilation also features great sides by The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Lightnin' Hopkins, T-Bone Walker, and Albert Collins.
