even with all of the negative remarks, no one could come close to him as he played harp, guitar, sang and wrote most of his songs, may have not been the smartest man, but try and find anything better, like Jimmy Reed said, i dont play blues, i play Jimmy Reed, and i admire him for that, if you ever listen to the songs called, mary,mary or there'll be a day, you will see why he was the best ever~

I finally took the time to download this album . i have a copy myself , but it's in bad condition and i'm happy to find yours that sounds much better , thanks for that .
There's a little error in the tagging : track 8 : I had a dream is actually : You Just a Womper-Stomper .

I posted this one on my blog in march , if it's Ok for you i will delete my zippy link and add your link in the comment box .
Thanks , Marc

Have to contradict you here a bit.. sure Reed was a simple musician, usually totally plastered from bourbon too! ... but he is unique and a great song writer.. and I have heard many bands trying to play Reed songs ever since the 60s and actually very few can capture the strange and syncopated rhythm that he and his bands do.. most drummers overplay and get the feeling and intonation totallt wrong when they do his songs.. like someone said of Woody Guthrie " Any damn fool can be complicated but it takes a genius to be simple " !
