  1. I look forward to these so much now! Great sound quality, by the way - some reissues I've heard of this can sound a little 'muddy'.

    1. Though there's much to be said for original 45s, 78s, and LPs, I'd rather have a nice digital remaster any day, all arguments to the contrary or in agreement notwithstanding. I've said it myself regarding Chess and other 50s Chicago 78s. And the first time I heard Joan Baez's second album on CD, I really missed all the clicks and pops and skips made by my toy record player. By now, 25+ years on, most of the reissuers are getting it right. And if you're talking Charley Patton Paramounts, well, a nice skillet of frying eggs popping away was always a nice sound! Unfortunately I didn't have a good remaster of "Little Darlin'" but. . . . Stay tuned, there's more top 40+ roadmap tunes in the chute.
