These days record companies are so keen to pull in a sale that they will release albums in a variety of versions, special editions, etc. Paul Poulton has already waxed lyrical about the Bronx bluesman's fine versions of Chuck Berry's "Nadine", Muddy Waters' "Hoochie Coochie Man" et al but he's subsequently discovered that there is a new version of this great album with two bonus tracks. As Dion's versions of Muddy's "I Just Want To Make Love To You" and Elmore James' "Dust My Broom" are great too (with the former featuring a delicious acoustic groove), it's the bonus tracks version that you will need to search out. Record companies, eh?
