I had this double LP album years ago, as Jimmy Reed has always been a favorite. It has long since been lost in several moves, and many years. When I saw the CD on Amazon, I was elated to find that the original had been digitilized. However,the disappointing aspect of the CD product is that whomever remastered the original works, cut off some of the length of the different tracks....not all, but several, thus, cutting the songs short. I was very disappointed with this, but I'm assuming that because there were so many tracks on the double album, the engineers cut short these tracks in order to accomodate them on only one CD. Reed's work was fabulous, along with Mama Reed, his wife who harmonized with him, so I'm very happy to have this music back in my life. If you are a Reed fan, and familiar with the early works, just realize that not all of the original tracks contain their original length.
