Jimmy Reed - Soulin' (Corrected rip)

Text below is an Amazon review from A. Prowse for the 2-fer cd release of Soulin'/New Jimmy Reed albums.
These two albums are the first ones Jimmy recorded for the Bluesway label near the end of his career and shouldn't be dismissed. This album and the superior "Big Boss Man/Down In Virginia" two-fer are the best produced Jimmy albums. All of Jimmy's trademarks are here and the band with Eddie Taylor, Phil Upchurch and Lefty Bates work their usual magic. As always, Jimmy rerecorded earlier material for each new album but don't think these are inferior to the "originals". This is all good stuff; so, if you have a sizeable helping of his Vee-Jay material and are still hankering for more of what made Jimmy great, get the Boss Man/Virginia album and if you like that, then get this one and relive that mis-spent youth trying to work out how he made such seemingly simple music so complex.

Thanks go to HM for providing this rip.

Thanks a lot for this "late-in-life" J.Reed album! For me Reed is always good stuff. Cheers Daniel, from Madrid, Spain

My man Jimmy Reed! Saw him with the AFBF must be 45 years ago. It was usually better to catch him in the afternoon show rather than the evening one where he was often too drunk. AFBF ... those were the days, I saw more bluesmen in Belgium and Holland than many white Americans of my generation in the States.

Something's wrong with track 2, it cuts at 0:49

Thank you Boogieman, from the 435 downloads you're the only one to notice the fault. I've replaced it with a mp3 from Youtube as I don't have the original LP.
