    Sugarcane Harris also plays on "Little Clanton Shuffle" #3/7 and #5/12

      He was so inspired by Archie Shepp he couldn't even manage to spell his name right.

        This listing as a 6CD Box Set makes much more sense than the one for the EU version of this release, which awkwardly lists it as 4CD + 1CD + 1CD. Ah well.
