Dinosauric Preception Roadmap Blues 1966

After a slew of Chicago blues albums dubbed from old 78s or Chess reissues of their older hits, all of a sudden here were three LPs in a series of current Chicago blues, and from a folk label (Vanguard) at that. Just the thing. . . . These two songs are from volume one.
