After featuring the guitar-driven music of ZZ Top yesterday in the classic rock category, I’m in the mood today for a bit more of the blues, Texas-style.

I’m not going to focus on just one musician today.  Instead, I’ll focus on five — Lightnin’ Hopkins, T-Bone Walker, Freddie King, Albert Collins, and Larry Davis.

Whether all five of them spent all their time in Texas or developed their style in the Lone Star State before moving elsewhere, they all left their marks on that brand of music known as Texas blues.
