Jazz on Arhoolie?...I thought they only released blues albums.

Thanks for sharing this, corvimax.

Wow, I have the 1969 recordings issued under Smiley Winters name with some of the same personnel but didn't even know this existed. Thanks!

Cool to see this. My first time in the studio, I'm amazed it came out as well as it did. Had a lot to learn 48 years ago, and . . . still do!
