Selected Bibliography
Notes Stormy Monday is the first bibliography of T-Bone Walker to be published.
"In a very real sense the modern blues is largely his creation," blues authority Pete Welding has written about T-Bone Walker. "The blues was different before he came on the scene, and it hasn't been the same since, and few men can lay claim to that kind of distinction. No one has contributed as much, as long, or as variously to the blues."

This is an unabridged republication of the edition published in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1987 (Louisiana State University Press), supplemented with author emendations.
