1. AllMusic by Al Campbell
Heritage of the Blues: The Best of Phillip Walker rounds up 12 highlights from his '70s and '80s Playboy, Joliet, Rounder, and High Tone recordings. The Louisiana-born, Texas-raised Walker made records that were gritty, yet they still remained solid, soul-inflected contemporary blues albums. The bulk of the highlights from his records, including "Someday You'll Have These Blues," "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," and "Laughin' & Clownin'," are featured, making this a fine introduction to Walker's most popular recordings. If you like what you hear, check out Bottom of the Top and Tough as I Want to Be.
