This is simply an incredible album, Memphis Slim's piano playing, singing and songwriting are first rate, and Matt 'Guitar' Murphy absolutely kills on this session. Note that while copies of this album may have a stereo sticker affixed to the cover, the ... See full review

My copy of this version is quite thrashed (many scratches), but none the less seems to be mastered at a very low level. Poor sound quality throughout, practically impossible to listen to.

'Your Love' is extremely similar to Bobby Day's version of Your Love / Darkest Corner (Of The Room). It almost sounds as if it's the same backing track, but with a different lead vocal.
