But the rarities from Eddie Hope the raucous "A Fool No More", Little Willie Foster "Little Girl", Papa Lightfoot an explosive transfer of "Wine, Women, Whiskey", Howlin' Wolf "Howlin' Wolf Boogie", Sammy Myers "Sleeping in the Ground" and Joe Hill Louis "Western Union Man" are every bit as potent as the bigger names aboard. Great selections from Doctor Ross, Billy Boy Arnold, Frank Frost, James Cotton, Junior Wells, George Smith, Shy Guy Douglas and the mysterious Cousin Leroy complete the collection.
