The original post (June 5th, 2011) contains a biography of T-Bone Walker and recording details of the tracks on this LP. You can find it here:


"T-Bone Jumps Again" was the first of three Charly LPs which compiled T-Bone's recordings for Black & White Records of Los Angeles, for whom he recorded between 30th September 1946 and December 1947. The series was originally conceived as a showcase for Capitol and Black & White recordings by T-Bone, but after "T-Bone Jumps Again" was released in 1980, further discographical research showed that the series of T- Bone Walker singles released by Capitol in 1949/50 were all cut from original Black & White masters.

An article in Billboard Magazine dated 30th April 1949 announced that Capitol had signed T-Bone Walker to a recording contract and had also purchased his Black & White masters. In fact T-Bone didn't record for Capitol in 1949/50 and all of his singles issued by that company were either reissues of material previously released on Black & White or first time releases of hitherto unreleased Black & White masters.

There was, however, one genuine Capitol single, recorded by T-Bone for the company while taking part in a Freddie Slack recording session in July 1942. "I Got A Break Baby" / "Mean Old World" was released by Capitol in November 1945 and it is included in this Charly collection.

The original post of this LP contains a lengthy appreciation of T-Bone and details of the recording sessions at which these tracks were cut. Information on the original release of the tracks was not included at the time, but I have now collected the necessary details. Note that the Comet label on which some T-Bone singles were released was owned by Black & White Records. Here is the track by track information in chronological order:
