The real hidden highlights are two hotel-room tracks with James Cotton on vocals, with Paul Butterfield and Elvin Bishop cast in rare acoustic roles on their respective instruments on "Polly Put the Kettle On" and "V-8 Ford Blues." Selections from Little Brother Montgomery and Sunnyland Slim complete the package.
