Sound quality is lacking. Compared with my original and this one sounds very thin. No where near the dynamic range I was hoping for. Disappointed but the music itself is still brilliant.

One of the very worst sounding records in my collection. I have no problems with the music. Just horrible sounding vinyl.

Too bad my copy was severely warped during shipping and couldn't be replaced. I pre-ordered it on Amazon months before the release, and by the time I got it and complained about it they wre sold out and they didn't have another one to send to me. The good thing is they returned my money and I got to keep it for free. The bad thing is, well, SEVERELY WARPED! After a few years of being compressed against other records and after having bought a better tracking turntable I was finally able to listen to it without any skips and loved it as much as I knew I would. Maybe one day I'll try that baking it in the oven thing, can't do any worse...
Apart from that, a great album (sorry Mr. Wolf, for disagreeing with you...).

When I was a teenager and more of a "blues purist" I hated this album. Then one day many years later I heard it again not knowing who it was at first, and realized it was actually quite good. The versions of "Smokestack Lightning" and "Moanin At Midnight" are hypnotic. (Soundgarden later used this Pete Cosey arrangement of "Smokestack Lightning" on their 1st LP, though they didn't do it justice.)
