This generous five-disc, 129-track set collects essentially every track he recorded for the Columbia, Black & White, Comet, Capitol, Mercury, and Imperial record labels between 1929 and the end of the 1950s, and concludes with key tracks from his 1957 T-Bone Blues album from Atlantic Records. Included are several versions of his signature song, "Stormy Monday."
